As previously noted, Karrion Kross was supposed to lose again this past Monday on WWE Raw but plans changed because of Jeff Hardy testing positive for COVID-19. Hardy is in quarantine and WWE decided to substitute Keith Lee in his place and Kross was booked to get the win.
On the Mat Men Pro Wrestling podcast, Andrew Zarian explained WWE’s reasoning for wanting to have Kross lose matches.
Zarian said, “Karrion Kross was supposed to lose again to Jeff Hardy in the rematch and then finally go berzerk. I’m not 100 percent on this but I was told that the plan was that Karrion Kross keeps losing until Scarlett shows up and that’s gonna bring him back on track because she is able to unleash the warrior, whatever they’re calling him, the gladiator in him.”
Zarian continued, “When I spoke to somebody over there they were like ‘yea I don’t understand why people are freaking out on the internet, it’s leading to something. Why don’t people understand, we’re telling a story, the match doesn’t matter, the story matters.’
Zarian added, “Those aren’t my words, I don’t agree that he should be losing but I also agree that sometimes we should let things play out.”
