Former Impact star Karrion Kross (f.k.a Killer Kross) is making his first big steps in NXT. In just two months, the hottest signee of the black-and-gold brand, Kross, has established himself as a strong contender to the prestigious Title.
Following their debut in May, Kross and his girlfriend Scarlett have received a ton of attention from all over the industry. This could land The Herald Of Doomsday a main event spot at the upcoming NXT TakeOver event before SummerSlam.
Kross has a long way to go from here, but he has already planned something big for his future. And that is to battle 3-time Universal Champion Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania. While speaking to Gorilla Position podcast, Kross expressed his desire to wrestle The Beast at The Showcase Of Immortals.
“You said WrestleMania? I would say Brock Lesnar. The measuring stick, it depends on the context. The way you would draw up what the measuring stick looks like might be different than the way someone else does, right?”
“For me, the measuring stick would essentially be who can draw the most into a building and who can draw the most attention. I think that he is a guy that transcended sports entertainment. He is in mainstream entertainment.”
For what it’s worth, Lesnar doesn’t come cheap and doesn’t come around very often. The Conqueror isn’t opposed to putting over younger talent, but at the same time, he doesn’t work with any random up and coming Superstar.
“If he [Brock] would be the measuring stick as much as The Rock would be the measuring stick. I say that because in terms of generating attention and interest, I think he is the highest paid actor in Hollywood. He came from here. If someone wants to emulate the absolute most success they can find in this business, I would say The Rock is the guy.”
While Kross vs Lesnar does seem like a possibility, it remains to be seen when exactly WWE grants the Devil of Monterrey his wish to go 1-on-1 with The Mayor of Suplex City at The Grandest Stage Of Them All.
