Chief Content Officer Triple H brought back a number of former WWE superstars since taking charge of the creative. In August 2022, he brought back Karrion Kross who launched an attack on Drew McIntyre on his return. Kross is currently involved in a storyline with Rey Mysterio in WWE.
In a recent interview with San Antonio Express-News. Kross commented on Vince McMahon’s return to the company. McMahon retired for a brief period of 6 months but is now back on the Board of Directors.
It’s in my news feeds, it’s everywhere. It’s inescapable at this point. But the people that I have spoken to about it, like my personal friends in the business, no one’s really concerned or afraid for their job. All of us are ready to adapt… I think everyone’s just taking it day by day to see where everything lands, and we’re all trying to remain optimistic.
Further in the interview, Kross explained that he had Scarlett had decided to start their family prior to their return to WWE.
We had no idea what we were doing until about like, four or five o’clock. When Hunter told us, ‘You’re going to drop Drew by yourself.’ I was shocked. Almost nobody beats up Drew McIntyre by themselves — usually they do it in packs. You know what I mean? That’s where he’s at. I went, ‘Oh, wow.’ And then he told us, ‘You’re gonna drop an hourglass in front of Roman.’ And I went, ‘Holy cow.’ So, I knew we were off to a very good start.
He called us up and he said, ‘Do you want to come home?’ And I responded, ‘Well, like, yeah.’ And then he was like, ‘All right. Here is my next question. Can you be here in a day and a half?’ And my wife and I were like, ‘That’s pretty fast.’ We had our lives planned out. People don’t know this, but we were thinking about having a kid and starting a family. But we just kind of gave each other a look and were like, ‘Yeah, we can do that.’
Kross was released from his first spell in November 2021.
