Karrion Kross returns as Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre face one another on SmackDown

Roman Reigns returned to Friday Night time SmackDown after defeating Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam in one of the brutal matches in WWE historical past. The Common Champion addressed Drew McIntyre earlier than Karrion Kross made his surprising return.

One other large coup at first of the Triple H period.

Kross and Scarlett by no means ought to’ve been launched within the first place. 

Even with an preliminary disastrous debut that was out of his management, Karrion Kross nonetheless oozes credibility and calls for consideration on-screen. He is somebody you may construct a complete model round.

The way in which he was introduced out on SmackDown this week is a significantly better technique to make that occur.

Attacking Drew McIntyre and sending a message to Roman Reigns with the hourglass made you overlook in regards to the foolish outfit from final 12 months and as an alternative deal with the truth that he is a monster. 

Strikes similar to this from Triple H are creating pleasure across the product once more and regaining belief from the fanbase. Kudos throughout.

Ricochet is among the most spectacular wrestlers on the earth. A potential renewed push on the horizon provides me hope in his WWE future.

A win over Joyful Corbin, even as a result of distraction from McAfee, is a step in the suitable route.

Hopefully he can proceed to rack up significant wins once more.

WWE introduced that beginning on Uncooked this week, there can be a match to crown new Girls’s Tag Group champions.

No groups have been introduced but, and it’s unclear right now the place the state of affairs stands between WWE and former champs Sasha Banks/Naomi.
