Karrion Kross: I wanted this character to feel important, the character Scarlett

Karrion Kross was part of the Out Of Character with Ryan Satin podcast. Kross spoke about Scarlett at the very start. It seems that he has great respect for her, and from the very beginning, he wanted to show that she is irreplaceable.

“Right from the very beginning, I looked at the functionality of how managers typically work in wrestling. One thing, before we got started in NXT, was I wanted to avoid accidentally creating a character to stand next to Karrion Kross that felt replaceable.

Some managers, sometimes, when somebody is watching something, ‘You know, if that manager wasn’t standing next to a particular talent, then I don’t think it would make a difference or maybe the talent would be better off or maybe the talent is overly dependent on the manager.’ I wanted to create a synchronicity between the two characters”.

- he said, as quoted by pwmania.com

Scarlett and Karrion Kross

There is no doubt that Scarlett left a huge impression on him, and their chemistry between them is a perfect example of how well they get along. Kross wants Scarlett to be one of the most important links in his chain.

Many people consider them to be tag partners as a result of their strong and good relationship. “She understood that and was right on track with it. These characters work together. This type of energy that they feed off of.

We were working on that for a while, in different ways. On the independents, we discovered that we like a lot of the same films and we were able to put that together. I wanted this character to feel important, the character Scarlett.

Sometimes, her and I almost think of Scarlett and Kross as a tag team instead of a wrestler and manager. With that notion and attention behind developing that, it’s why it comes off the way it does”.

They are an example of a great cooperation between managers and wrestlers.
