Adam Cole tore him apart in brutal 2021 promo

Karrion Kross is back in WWE, returning on last night’s post-SummerSlam episode of Friday Night SmackDown.

Kross returned by attacking Drew McIntrye, before also making it clear that he had his sights set on Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns.

The 37-year-old was immediately inducted into WWE’s main event scene, suggesting his second run with the company will be better than his first.

Kross had the rocket strapped to him after he joined NXT in 2020, and within a few months he was already an NXT Champion.

However, Kross wasn’t a super-worker like many of the other wrestlers in NXT at the time, so some fans turned against him because of it.

WWE decided to capitalize on the criticism of Kross as part of a storyline, which culminated on last year’s June 1 episode of NXT.

During the show, Kross came face to face with Adam Cole, with the former Undisputed Era man completely ripping him apart on the microphone.

And now, following Kross’s return to WWE last night, footage from that promo, which you can see below, is once again circulating online.

Cole talked about how NXT did everything they could to make Kross feel special, but emphasized that he was so good in the ring that he didn’t need the special effects.

This brand has gone above and beyond to make you feel special. You’ve got the cool music, you’ve got the lights, you’ve got the fog machine, you’ve got the girl. You know what they do to make Adam Cole feel special? They’re ringing the damn bell.

He then got even bolder, insisting that Kross was not at his level, and saying that anyone who watches wrestling knows that.

On your best day you couldn’t lace up my boots. You can’t stay with me. You’re not on my level, and anyone who watches pro wrestling knows that.

The promo was absolutely brutal, leaving Kross completely speechless as his counterpart kept berating him on the mic.

Things are looking positive for Kross in WWE right now as rumors suggest he is on the cusp of becoming a WWE Champion, which you can read more about by clicking here.

You can watch Karrion Kross live every week on SmackDown in the US on FOX and here in the UK on BT Sport.
