Well Kross isn't exactly good and never really has been. Like I said in another post he was the second most interesting guy in a tag team with Moose before Moose figured out who he was as an act and levelled up. That's not high praise because pre crisis Moose was boring as hell at that point. The only thing Kross figured out was that hot girl plus overly contrived entrance and being twice the size of everyone I work with mean people think I'm kind of good.No, I dont care who he was confronting last night this is about his being established. This bullshit about Jeff hardy's past is just that, bullshit that you hardy fans use cuz you like the fact that your boy won. If this guy who is supposed to be dominant is losing to feet on the ropes from el jobber to the stars then it says alot about his future prospects in the wwe and vince is a dipshit for doing it.
Also, Jeff Hardy isn't in my top twenty favourite guys in WWE so we can put that "Hardy Fans" shit to bed right now. I'm not even saying it was good booking to have Kross lose like that it just isn't the end of the world. Hell be fine, he'll get to bounce Jeff Hardy around for 7 minutes at SummerSlam and all will be right with the world. I mean that still leaves you with a boring dude who looks about as intimidating as Shelton Benjamin but Shelton can't "mean mug" for close ups so at least Kross can do that.
Dominant, he's supposed to be dominant, what would give anyone that idea? All he does is beat up guys half his size and he doesn't even SQUASH them. If he was dominant and a monster he doesn't go fifteen minutes with Johnny Gargano it goes three and Gargano gets thrown around like a rag doll and gets(if he's lucky) a quick near fall on a roll up and maybe a quickly shrugged off attempt at GarganoEscape that's it. There's this thing that Roddy Piper used to say about overly long promos but it applies to matches too "never take 10 minutes to say what you can in 2." If the goal is to get people to think that Kross is some unbeatable monster his matches go three minutes not fifteen. They didn't even commit fully to making him a dominant monster in NXT and people expected him to dominate guys on the main roster that doesn't make sense at all.
