William Regal has had a lot of praise for returning WWE star Karrion Kross and says Kross’ act with Scarlett is “fantastic.”
Karrion Kross made a splash when he made a shock return to WWE on the 5th of August edition of SmackDown when he attacked Drew McIntyre. Kross’ wife Scarlett also made a statement to Roman Reigns when she left her hourglass at his feet, signalling that his time might be running out as Unified WWE Universal Champion.
The move might have come as a surprise given that both Karrion Kross and Scarlett were released by the company in November 2021. The duo had found success together in NXT but when Kross went to the main roster alone, the changes to his character did not prosper.
One man who worked closely with them in NXT was current AEW star William Regal. Speaking on his Gentleman Villain podcast, Regal spoke about working with Kross and explained why he’s glad he’s getting a second chance:
“There’s a lot of myth and there’s a lot of nonsense that goes on about what was going on in the last couple of years of NXT. We were in survival mode because that’s all we could do. We were taping, you know, and unfortunately for Karrion Kross, as he came into NXT when we were in COVID, it wasn’t [unfortunate] because he did incredibly well.”
“[…] I used to not be on the show that much, but we had to rely on people who could put a show out every week. And it fit in and he did his bit and he did it well, and the act with Scarlett is fantastic. […] I’m really glad that he’s going to get a chance again because he’s just a good lad. Some of the stuff that he’s capable of in his range.”
“I think there was the one when Samoa Joe came back, there’s a promo segment that we did, I was just [me] and there was nothing written for that at all. It was just me going out. [..] But we were down there and we were doing that and I went out there and I just did my thing. And Karrion came out and did his thing and it worked. So it was a great thing. And I’m really really happy that he’s getting to do his thing again. Because that lad is just a top rate lad. And Scarlett is a lovely lady. He is a good lad.”
