The sight of Kross’ physique — a hulking 6-foot-4, 265 pounds. And the unbridled intensity in his eyes is enough on its own to inspire fear in opponents. Also, consider his unique combination of precision and abject ruthlessness. And it becomes clear that anyone stepping in the ring with Kross is in immediate danger.

A master of catch wrestling and samba, Karrion Kross has done battle around the world. So he boasts an array of devastating suplexes, including his dreaded Doomsday Saito, performed with reckless intent. And if that’s not enough, he’s more than happy to put opponents to sleep with the Kross Jacket.
