Karrion Kross defeated Keith Lee in order to win the NXT Championship. However, he suffered a separated injury during the match and due to that, he had to give up the title. Now it seems he is working very hard to make sure he returns sooner rather than later.
Kross took to Instagram and posted a video of him performing a deadlift in the gym. He did not provide answers to any questions which were his injury status. He explained the reason for doing so. He said that he feels “absurdly stronger” than he ever did before.
I have deliberately neglected to answer any questions about my health from fans since July 22nd for a variety of reasons. I see them everyday though. And the check in’s have been sincerely appreciated. However, Today I will answer your question. I feel absurdly stronger now than I did even before July. I have not squandered this time away. I have always been addicted to challenges and avenues of improvement since I was a small kid. And I see no point in returning if I’m not coming back even stronger than I was to begin with. See you all again when the T I M E is right. Which as you know… could be any second. Or maybe when you least expect it.
Current NXT Finn Balor broke his jaw in two places and required surgery. He is also recuperating and waiting to be cleared for an in-ring return.
