Karrion Kross: There's Something Much Bigger Going On Here Than What's Happening In The Ring

Karrion Kross says you just need to have faith.

Karrion Kross formed The Final Testament with the Authors of Pain (Akam and Rezar), Scarlett, and Paul Ellering in January. However, the group has struggled to score many wins. Specifically, Kross has not won a televised match since the July 28, 2023, episode of WWE SmackDown. Authors of Pain lost their match on the April 19 episode of WWE SmackDown, but Kross is focused on the bigger picture.

In a WWE SmackDown Exclusive, Karrion Kross, alongside Scarlett, discussed The Final Testament's struggles and looked forward to the WWE Draft.

Karrion Kross: Authors of Pain lost their match tonight. We lost the match at WrestleMania. You know, I don’t think I’ve won a match on television since August of last year. But we were still on WrestleMania. Times like this, I gotta tell myself everything happens for a reason. There’s something much bigger going on here than what’s just happening in the ring. Hey, how’s The Bloodline doing? Somewhat in shambles?

Scarlett: I guess you could say that.

KK: Before Solo took Jimmy out, he hadn’t won a match in quite some time, but he was also still on WrestleMania, wasn’t he? It’s funny how these things work. How’s Drew McIntyre doing? Has he ever gotten his mind back?

S: Nope.

KK: [Laughs] Shinsuke Nakamura still completely honorless?

S: Completely.

KK: How’s The O.C. doing?

S: I guess you could say not so good.

K: So basically non-existent. Even though Bobby won at WrestleMania, the following Friday, he took all that momentum, and he blew it once again. Probably straight back to the stands, in front of the camera with his $10,000-dollar sunglasses on, crying. [Laughs] You know something? You just gotta have a little bit of faith. That’s how it works. Everything happens for a reason. With the Draft coming up, everything’s going to change again, just like I said. I told you this place was gonna be recycled. I can’t spell it out in English for you all the time, ladies and gentlemen. That takes the fun out of it for me. There’s something much bigger going on here than just what you’re watching in the ring. Mark my words and remember what I’m saying because I always tell you the truth. So sayeth The Final Testament.
