‘The Viper’ Randy Orton has challenged NXT Superstar, Karrion Kross, to join him on the main roster so the pair can make money together.
The former WWE Champion has a history of attempting to rile NXT stars into fight on social media, having previously taken shots at Tommaso Ciampa and Keith Lee prior to the latter’s promotion to the main roster in August, 2020.
On that occasion, reality bled through into storyline and Orton and Keith Lee went to war upon the latter’s debut and at WWE Payback in a stature enhancing moment for the former NXT Champion.
Now, ‘The Legend Killer’ has been at it again using Twitter to fire a shot across the bow of powerhouse, Karrion Kross. Teasing the money the pair could make together on a bigger stage than the black and gold brand, Orton challenged the star to get himself to Raw where he would be waiting:
“Get yo ass up here and let’s fight, make some $ and crack a beer. Wtf you waiting for??? Time? F**k time. Haha I’ll set my alarm.”

Randy Orton is now looking ahead to WrestleMania 37 where his planned match with Edge – originally slated to be “I Quit” – will likely be replaced by the conclusion of his rivalry with Alexa Bliss and a returning Fiend Bray Wyatt.
On the February 1 Monday Night Raw, Orton brought his feud with Edge to a close with a clean pin fall loss which occurred after an Alexa Bliss distraction and a hefty spear from the 2021 Royal Rumble winner.
Since returning to the black and gold brand from an injury he sustained at NXT TakeOver XXX, the same night he defeated Keith Lee to capture the NXT Championship, Karrion Kross has set his sights on Damian Priest – who he defeated at NXT New Year’s Evil on January 6, 2021 – and now has NXT Champion Finn Balor in his crosshairs.
