In the latest episode of Monday Night Raw, WWE saw fit to make NXT's all-time champion Karrion Kross debut on the main roster, sending him against one of the company's veterans, who had recently seen a setback in his career.
quite important: Jeff Hardy. As soon as the dispute began, all the fans and insiders of the company were over-sure that Hardy was the usual opponent of mid-carding, which is "fed" to the champion arrived from NXT, so that he can make his debut with great first success, to push his career also on the main roster, but sensationally, this time it was not so.
In fact, Jeff Hardy won the robbery match, who with a roll-up and the help of the ropes of the ring pinned the mammoth absolute champion of the yellow roster, making him start his path on Monday Night Raw with a defeat, in general disbelief.
Vince McMahon might be making a direct statement to NXT by having Kross lose to Jeff Hardy in a very short encounter. Many fans have been speculating on the reason behind Kross' surprising loss on RAW, and Sean Ross Sapp provided some information regarding the matter.
On Fightful's post-RAW review show, Sean Ross Sapp stated that he received a message from an NXT source who felt like it was a "message being sent" from Vince McMahon to NXT.
Part of the backstage is furious with Vince McMahon
Apparently, the idea of making the NXT champion lose against Jeff Hardy in his debut belongs to the Chairman himself, Vince McMahon, who would have used this defeat as a warning and as a message.
towards its employees, especially those on the yellow roster. Despite this, the defeat suffered by Karrion Kross would still have created a huge rift within the WWE backstage, with several insiders who would be embittered and frustrated by the thing.
As reported in the last few hours by the well-known overseas podcast, the Fightful Select, in fact: "There was a lot of frustration from the people we spoke to, how Finn Balor, Adam Cole, Johnny Gargano, Santos Escobar, Oney Lorcan and others worked to help Kross become as dominant as possible."
With a simple whim of Vince McMahon, therefore, months and months of NXT booking would have gone up in smoke, with the WWE patron who apparently would have expressed total disinterest in the triple H son-in-law's yellow roster project and his actions would speak in fact very clear.
This could be a likely reason for what is considered by many to be a weird booking decision. Vince McMahon might be making a direct statement to NXT by having Kross lose to Jeff Hardy in a very short encounter.
