• SmackDown Star Says He Isn’t Getting Enough Opportunities To Reach His Full Potential
During an interview on Superstar Crossover, SmackDown Superstar Karrion Kross talked about his current WWE run, which began on the post-SummerSlam 2022 episode of SmackDown.
Kross talked about not getting enough opportunities to reach his full potential, but he’ll wait because he knows what he is capable of achieving.
Below is what the former 2-time NXT Champion said:
“This is probably unhealthy, and I shouldn’t say it, but I’m just gonna say it. I actually get really pissed, because it’s not enough. It’s not enough. I haven’t reached my full potential yet and people haven’t seen my best work yet.
I know what I can do, and at this level, you need to be afforded certain types of opportunities, which is difficult with a big roster and only two hours of the program.
And I know that once I am afforded that particular shot — because I’ve been afforded a lot, let’s not get it twisted — once I am afforded that particular shot to demonstrate what I can really do, what I’ve done where people on a major scale haven’t seen it? People are gonna be blown away.
And I’m gonna fight for that every single week, to get closer and closer to that shot. And I’m being straight with you, I’m being very real.
I think you’re gonna be able to expect compelling storytelling. If I am granted and allotted the time to romance the audience and ‘Shakespeare’ them into what it is that I am very good at doing, which is laying down the foundations of eliciting an emotional response to get people interested in what we’re doing.
You’re gonna see some great storytelling. And one of my jobs that I have kind of given to myself is to help fans see different layers of people that maybe they haven’t seen before that I’m gonna be working with.
I like to put people in different situations and circumstances that perhaps they hadn’t been in prior to working with me. So that’s what they’re gonna get.”
