A new report emerging from Fightful Select has revealed that Shinsuke Nakamura is set to begin an exciting new feud with Karrion Kross starting tonight. As part of the program, WWE has prepared a Nakamura-themed tarot card, likely to be used by either Kross or his valet, Scarlett Bordeaux, in their promos and segments.
While there is no information yet on when the first match between Nakamura and Kross will take place, it promises to be an electrifying encounter as it will be the first time the two superstars face each other in the ring.
Kross' Recent WWE Appearances
Karrion Kross' most recent appearance on WWE television was in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal, which took place on March 31. Before this, he participated in a Fatal 5 Way match against LA Knight, Xavier Woods, and eventual winners Sheamus and Drew McIntyre on the March 10 episode of SmackDown.
Kross' last singles match on WWE television saw him secure a victory over 2023 WWE Hall of Famer Rey Mysterio on February 24. On the other hand, Shinsuke Nakamura has been absent from WWE TV matches since his loss to Santos Escobar on the November 11th episode of SmackDown.
Despite this setback, Nakamura continued to perform at non-televised live events. At the Pro Wrestling NOAH event in Tokyo, Japan, he kicked off the new year with a remarkable win over another 2023 WWE Hall of Famer, The Great Muta.
Since his victory over The Great Muta, Nakamura has only competed in two live event matches. Both of these contests saw him team up with Braun Strowman and Madcap Moss, securing six-man tag team victories over Imperium on January 21 and January 22.
The upcoming feud between Shinsuke Nakamura and Karrion Kross will captivate the WWE Universe, as both superstars are known for their unique in-ring styles and charismatic personas. As WWE builds up this rivalry, fans can expect a series of engaging promos and thrilling matches between the two.
This development also raises questions about the potential involvement of Scarlett Bordeaux, who is not only Karrion Kross' valet but also a talented wrestler in her own right.
It remains to be seen if she will play a role in the upcoming feud or if the focus will remain solely on Nakamura and Kross as they battle for supremacy in the WWE ring.
