Killer Kross has revealed which intimidating WWE Superstar is actually a gentle giant, and which star is surprisingly a tough guy!

Speaking with Inside The Ropes’ Lead Writer Gary Cassidy for Issue 18 of Inside The Ropes Magazine, Killer Kross answered our 20 Questions and answered a few more questions – including the surprising traits about certain WWE Superstars.

The former Karrion Kross opened up about how “legitimately tough” Ridge Holland is actually a “very gentle human being” and “wonderfully smart” – before reiterating the SmackDown Superstar’s toughness.

“Oh, OK. I’ll go with the gentle guy, the guy who who he is legitimately tough, but in real life, he’s a wonderful smart, very gentle human being, loves his family. I’m going to say Ridge Holland.

“Ridge Holland is very soft spoken, very intelligent… Don’t get me wrong, if you show up at his door and you’re uninvited, you’re definitely going into a casket, that’s for sure. Like real quick.

Meanwhile, Kross found it more difficult to pinpoint a smaller star who could send even the biggest of individuals running for cover, stating that all of the smaller Superstars deserve respect for doing things most of the bigger guys wouldn’t.

“Even even like guys that even guys that, you know, maybe, let’s say, are smaller than other people, they’re taking bumps the big guys would never take. Like, they’ll go flying off the top of a cage and land on the top of their head. So it’s like, how are you going to say that they’re not tough? You know what I mean?

“They might be completely insane and mentally unwell. But I mean, I can’t say that that’s you have to have a certain level of toughness to take a bump like that.”

When pushed for an answer, Killer Kross named one star who is “very legit” – KUSHIDA!

“A guy you wouldn’t think is tough, or doesn’t play a tough guy and actually is, would be KUSHIDA. He’s very legit!”
