The divine Scarlett Bordeaux has finally given NXT fans an update on the injury suffered by her client and real life partner, Karrion Kross.
Taking to Instagram, Scarlett posted a short video of the former NXT Champion lifting both herself and a second woman while simultaneously doing a shoulder press with a bamboo bar.
While it appears that the fearsome powerhouse is on the road to recovery, Bordeaux accompanied the post with the following:
“Everyone loves a comeback, but not everyone is willing to do what it takes. We’re getting closer… and he’s about to be the deadliest piece on the board.”
Karrion Kross defeated Keith Lee to capture the NXT Championship at NXT TakeOver XXX on August 22. However, during the bout he seemed to suffer an unusual injury to his arm when Keith Lee connected with a clothesline over the top rope.
As it turned out, taking Lee’s full weight on the shoulder caused Kross to separate his acromioclavicular joint and he was forced to vacate the NXT Championship on the following edition of NXT.
With his in-ring return clearly imminent, it doesn’t take a genius to work out where his first port of call will be. Following Finn Balor’s victory over Adam Cole for the vacant NXT Championship, Scarlett gifted the Irishman the broken hourglass which had previously counted down the final days of Keith Lee’s reign.
The sand of time appear to be running out on Finn Balor’s championship sovereignty.
Inside the Ropes wishes Karrion Kross a speedy recovery.
