Former NXT Champion, Karrion Kross, has taken to social media to tease his return to the black and gold brand.
Posting a video on his Instagram page of him working out, Kross also included a message to the fans that dictated he and the divine Scarlett may be on their way back to the brand sooner than anyone thought:
“I have deliberately neglected to answer any questions about my health from fans since August 22nd for a variety of reasons. I see them everyday though. And the check in’s have been sincerely appreciated. However, today I will answer your question. I feel absurdly stronger now than I did even before July. I have not squandered this time away. I have always been addicted to challenges and avenues of improvement since I was a small kid. And I see no point in returning if I’m not coming back even stronger than I was to begin with. See you all again when the T I M E is right. Which as you know… could be any second. Or maybe when you least expect it. #EXCELSIOR #TickTock”
The ominous spelling and use of the word ‘T I M E’ has gotten many speculating that Kross’ return is right around the corner and he could step back into the ring as soon as the next speculated NXT Takeover on December 6.
With NXT Champion Finn Balor getting closer to a return himself and looking for his next challenger, the sands of time could be quickly running out on the Irishman’s reign.
Karrion Kross has been absent from television since NXT TakeOver 30 on August 23. During the NXT Championship Match with Keith Lee, in which the star lifted the strap, he suffered a separated acromioclavicular joint in his shoulder after sending Lee over the top rope with a clothesline.
The message comes just weeks after Scarlett provided the last update on the star, showing a video in which he lifted both her and a friend using just a bamboo cane.
Inside the Ropes wishes Karrion Kross a speedy recovery.
