Karrion Kross' WWE Raw booking could have been even worse.
After sustaining a loss in his WWE Raw debut, Fightful learned that the plan from WWE at one point was to follow that up with another loss the next week.
Fightful Select reported the following:
Sources indicated to Fightful that although Kross was victorious over Keith Lee this week on an episode of WWE Raw, that wasn't the original plan. Jeff Hardy, who beat Kross last week, was sidelined and caused a significant shift in the Raw booking for Kross. Plans called for Kross to take on Jeff Hardy again on the July 26 episode of Raw, and lose yet again. We weren't told of a specific creative direction following this, but that several members of creative, and even more of the roster were baffled by the idea to beat Kross once, let alone a second straight week.
