Karrion Kross has noticed quite the difference between NXT and Raw.
The former NXT Champion made his main roster debut on the July 19 episode of Raw while still holding NXT's top prize. He would hold onto the belt until TakeOver 36, where he lost it to Samoa Joe. Over the past three months, Kross has amassed a record of 7-2 on Monday nights.
Appearing as a guest on Table Talk, Kross commented on the experience of working on Raw and NXT and how they differ. He said the following:
"It's a completely different experience in the way that the show runs. The CWC, the day felt, in terms of how the show was laid out, felt very premeditated in terms of the direction we knew we were going to be going and everything was spaced out with time allotted. It just felt more concrete whereas with Raw, there are so many moving parts and a lot of things that are changing moment to moment. Being able to adapt and change on the fly, I don't want to necessarily say it was hard, it's more fun. I enjoy stuff like that and don't mind pressure whatsoever. Sometimes when you're backstage, certain things like time stuff gets extended or cut or things like that. For me, it's been really fun. I don't necessarily know if I observe the transition from NXT to Raw as necessarily hard or easy, it's just in general a really cool learning experience. To see how many people in comparison to CWC to Raw in terms of staff, there are wires around the entire place. How many people come together every Monday to put that show together from the ground up is incredible. It's very inspiring to see that many people working on that show. That's how I observe all of it. It is a totally different experience."
Kross was drafted to Raw during night two of the WWE Draft.
Kross has put together a winning streak on television after losing to Jeff Hardy in his Raw debut and Keith Lee in his third match.
