Karrion Kross Looks Unrecognisable As He Unveils New Look

After reports that he’s set to undergo more aesthetic changes, Karrion Kross has unveiled a new look on Twitter.

Following a dominant run on NXT which saw Karrion Kross become a two-time NXT Champion without being pinned before joining the main roster, Karrion Kross lost on his very first match on Monday Night Raw after being pinned by Jeff Hardy in a little over a minute.

After a somewhat uncertain start to life on the main roster, Kross was then given a new look which included a mask/helmet combo worn during his entrance and new attire featuring straps across his chest with the idea behind the change being to make him more marketable.

Just a matter of days ago, it was reported that the character of Karrion Kross could be set for more change as Wrestle Votes noted that his entire presentation will be updated, although his manager Scarlett will remain absent.

Source states WWE is shifting Karrion Kross’ character once again. Plan is for him to be more of a “psycho” yet still “calm & cool.” As of now the helmet stays, but for whatever reason, still no Scarlett. Presentation of entrance including theme music set to change as well.

Well, we may have just been given a sneak peek into what Kross will look like, as a new photoshoot with Illite Fotos has shown Kross looking unrecognisable with a new look, having grown out his hair and shaved his facial hair off completely.

Kross recently discussed his current look on the the Table Talk podcast. The Raw Superstar said that the presentation was inspired by gladiators in the coliseum.

“My original concept was like, this feels like what the coliseum days would be like. We’re in a circular area with people around. With the character presentation of Karrion Kross and the development, this wasn’t just a regular match people were getting into. Win or lose, you might not be coming out the same way.”

After Kross debuted with defeat to Jeff Hardy on July 19th, he has since only been defeated once, racking up an impressive winning streak. The two-time NXT Champion last appeared on the September 27th edition of Raw where he made short work of Jaxson Ryker, pinning his rival in under two minutes.
