— Speaking to ESPN this weekend, Karrion Kross spoke about his TakeOver match on Saturday as well as the separated shoulder that he suffered confirming that it happened when Keith Lee him with a clothesline near the top ropes. Kross still finished the rest of the match, which he won to become the new NXT champion, but will be undergoing an MRI on Monday to determine the extent of the damage.
“I will get the professional, educated opinion on what the severity of it is. But it’s definitely separated. I won’t beat around the bush about that. As the saying goes, it’s not ballet. I feel mixed emotions right now. The whole situation is very bittersweet. I think from a natural place, I’m always a very motivated individual. I’m a solution-based thinker, rather than a pity-based thinker.”
— Kross has already began looking into various rehab options and doesn’t believe he will be sidelined too long as the injury comes at the worst time given his push and title win. When asked if he will be out of action for a significant period of time, he said:
“From my point of view, no. [Due to] how I feel and what I’ve heard, I don’t know. I’m very intuitive with my body. And the range of emotion that I have right now, while it’s not what I would like it to be, for me personally, it would indicate to me that I’m going to get be able to get through this without any sort of extreme measures, so to speak. In my opinion, today.”
