Karrion Kross On The Gorilla Position Podcast

Karrion Kross Reveals Which One WWE Legend All Pro Wrestlers Should Try To Emulate

Exciting WWE NXT prospect Karrion Kross recently appeared as a guest on The Gorilla Position podcast for an in-depth interview.

During his appearance on the popular program, Kross named two high-profile WWE figures that he would like to stand across from inside the ring at WrestleMania for a “Dream Match,” and why he feels they are the two that make the most sense to him from an overall perspective.

“You said WrestleMania? I would say Brock Lesner,” Kross replied. “The measuring stick, it depends on the context. The way you would draw up what the measuring stick looks like might be different than the way someone else does, right?”

The exciting new addition to the WWE black-and-gold brand continued, explaining what he considers the measuring stick to mean.

“For me, the measuring stick would essentially be who can draw the most into a building and who can draw the most attention,” Kross said. “I think that he is a guy that transcended sports entertainment. He is in mainstream entertainment.”

Kross, who came to WWE NXT with Scarlett Bordeaux after a stint the two had where he worked as Killer Kross in IMPACT Wrestling, would go on to elaborate on why figures whose reach expands into the mainstream media are important to properly utilize in a pro wrestling promotion.

“I think that figures like that in our business are pretty important,” he said. “We always need new fans. We always want to create new fans. I think there are people who can engage the hardcore fans nonstop, easily, no problem, the purists I guess you can say. Then there are people that have a mainstream entertainment appeal.”

Kross then named Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as another “WrestleMania Dream Match” opponent, explaining how he fits into the mainstream media category more than anyone else, and why he is the one WWE Superstar that up-and-comers should emulate the most.

“I respectfully don’t know, in my opinion, if he would be the measuring stick as much as The Rock would be the measuring stick,” said Kross. “I say that because in terms of generating attention and interest, I think he is the highest paid actor in Hollywood. He came from here. If someone wants to emulate the absolute most success they can find in this business, I would say The Rock is the guy.”
