Karrion Kross Says He Knew His WWE Release Was Coming

Karrion Kross and Scarlett Bordeaux spoke with Renee Paquette’s “Oral Sessions” podcast, where they explained the creative changes to their characters and their release from WWE.

Kross on the news of being released by WWE:

“To be honest with you, I kind of felt like it was coming. I felt like the situation could have been recovered on the main roster. I felt it could have been recovered. It’s fiction. In a world of fiction, the possibilities are endless, but yea, I had a weird feeling that night just on the debut of us, like I kind of felt like this was the direction it was going in. It was a sense of disappointment, but it was also a sense of relief as well. As an artist, imagine like if you were a comedian you go on stage, and right as they’re about to drop your name in front of the crowd, the person who owns the nightclub says, ‘You can’t use your best jokes, by the way, so go knock it out of the park.’ It’s like, what?”

Kross talking about his Raw match against Jeff Hardy:

“When I went up and they asked me to do the match with Jeff and put him over, I said, ‘Sure, that’s fine.’ I grew up a fan of Jeff, and then getting to meet Jeff and him being really cool was an awesome experience for me. He was one of the coolest people I’ve ever met. I remember one of the agents came to me and said, ‘There’s a long term plan for this, so don’t sweat it. Don’t worry.’ I’m like, ok, cool. I do my entrance, I get out there, and the ref bumps me and says, ‘You’re 10 minute match is down to 90 seconds. The first time we’re working on television. We don’t really know each other in the ring, like our rhythm. They came back from a commercial and I’m trying not to laugh. If you go back and watch it, I’m smiling, closed mouth, trying to hold it back. As soon as Jeff got in the ring, I snatched him and called what we needed to do, and that was it. When I went back to NXT the next day, I spoke with someone there. I said, ‘My biggest fear right now, my biggest phobia, is that there’s a hole being dug for me and I’m nervous that if I’m not permitted to crawl out of it myself, and people absolve themselves of creating this situation, that I’m not going to be a return on this investment and I’m going to be fired. So, what do you think I should do right now because part of this business is doing what you’re told?’ My intuition intuitively was telling me that everything was off. Everything felt wrong, and I felt something bad coming four months before it happened. But everyone I would talk to said, ‘Everybody loves you. We have no problems’, but I felt it coming. I tried to, as professionally and politely as I could, talk to people in the chain of command about that. I tried to be a good sport about it.”
