Scarlett Bordeaux Recalls Recording 'Fall And Pray' Theme In Her Bathroom On A Cell Phone

Scarlett and Karrion Kross struck NXT fans watching at home immediately with their "Fall and Pray" entrance.

The dark entrance and large feel production immediately became a hit for many fans and fit with Kross' character along with the vibe of NXT.

Speaking to Renee Paquette on Oral Sessions, Kross and Scarlett discussed how it all came together.

"We were approached from the whole creative department in NXT," said Kross.

Scarlett chimed in, noted that Triple H is a "genius" and "brilliant."

Kross continued by saying, "The name that never gets mentioned is Johnny Russo, who is the head writer at NXT. They asked me to send over some of my Independent stuff from YouTube. I had been chronologically trying to log my career and I used to create these short films about the character so people would have some sort of context of who this was. I would send them my original stuff and go, 'Listen, if we plug this into the machine, this character would be original, new, fresh, there are different elements that I think can tribute to the show that, respectfully, are not there.' I didn't want to come into the show like somebody else. Just like any wrestling show, you want to have a healthy variety of different creative things going on. I showed that to them, they dug it, they took different aspects of that and made their own version. Hunter put us in touch with Neil, the music guy, and he sent a couple of different tracks. The first track he sent, I didn't want to be a pain in the ass, but I wasn't crazy about it. [Scarlett] wasn't crazy about it either."

Scarlett said, "Immediately. You were a lot nicer about it, but it didn't feel right."

As fans know, Scarlett did the vocals for the "Fall and Pray" track. The process of recording all happened on a cell phone.

"I sent it to Hunter, he heard it, and messaged me back, 'I don't know about this.' He got more involved with it and they came up with the track you guys heard and he asked, 'Would she want to sing this song?'" recalled Kross.

Scarlett discussed how it all came together, saying, "Hunter came up with 'Fall and Pray.' We had a track and he said, 'Can you sing, make up a melody to sing.' I was on my phone in the bathroom trying to come up with something because I have a musical theater background. It was the pandemic. We debuted in front of no one and couldn't get to a studio at that time. I just did it on my phone, sent it to him, he loved it and the next day we recorded it in the PC room, still on a phone, but you couldn't hear the echo from my bathroom. Everything you heard was recorded off a cell phone."

Unfortunately for Kross and Scarlett, fans never saw the entrance in its full form on the main roster as Scarlett was not called up as a manager for Kross.

Elsewhere during the interview, Scarlett revealed why she wasn't a manager for Kross and didn't end up wrestling outside of a dark match on the main roster. You can find her explanation by clicking here.
