The former NXT Champion was seen showcasing a leather strap gear coupled with a mask, making it oddly similar to Lord Humongous from Continental Wrestling Association in 1984. WWE went with red and black, probably to keep in touch with Raw’s signature colour.

However, it may not have been the best choice for in-ring gear because the WWE fans have resorted to mocking it rather than appreciating it.

The WWE Universe reacts to the new gear

While some fans have accepted that this is a process, and Kross will rise to the top on WWE Raw, others are convinced that a gear is a crucial part of the character, and WWE has ruined Kross.

It’s unknown if this will be Karrion Kross’ new attire for the long-term. However, it’s unlikely that the company will change his gear all over again!

The company built a storyline between Kross, Samoa Joe, and General Manager William Regal. It showed Kross going out of control and Joe confronting William Regal about the same. However, Regal told Joe he would take care of it. Unfortunately for Regal, the former champion had a mind of his own, and attacked Regal instead of listening to him.

They cut an entire segment where Samoa Joe was waiting for Karrion Kross to arrive at NXT, but when he arrived, he did not come to the arena. Instead, he left after attacking William Regal, claiming he will do what he wants, when he wants!
