This week’s episode of WWE SmackDown marks the final stop before the exhilarating “Biggest Party of The Summer” takes center stage in Detroit, where The Tribal Chief is set to defend his prestigious Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against a challenger from his own bloodline. As the anticipation builds for the premium live event, former two-time NXT Champion Karrion Kross has decided to address the injury speculations that have been circulating ahead of the grand showdown.
Earlier this year, Karrion Kross and Scarlett made their return to Friday Night SmackDown after being drafted to the blue brand, igniting a new chapter in their WWE journey. Kross’s first rival on the show was none other than the renowned and phenomenal AJ Styles.
Recently, observant fans noticed that Kross had his left leg taped during matches, sparking concerns that he might be dealing with an injury. To put these fears to rest, The Herald of Doomsday took to Instagram and candidly addressed the situation surrounding his leg.
“I’m still asked about why my leg was taped weeks ago, so to lay it to rest; I’m 100% all good. That whacky spiderweb-like brushing happened after I pulled the KT tape off. I’ve always healed very quickly since I was a kid, and I personally wouldn’t even have called it an injury. Stuff happens. So there you go lol. It’s not ballet,” wrote Kross, reassuring his fans about his condition.

As we await the upcoming WWE SmackDown, the intrigue continues to mount regarding the developments between Karrion Kross, AJ Styles, and The O.C.
Last year, Karrion Kross and Scarlett made a striking return to WWE under Triple H’s new regime, securing a place on Friday Night SmackDown. After engaging in a fierce feud with Drew McIntyre, Kross secured notable victories against several prominent superstars before facing an unexpected loss to Rey Mysterio ahead of the Royal Rumble.
However, The Herald of Doomsday didn’t let the setback deter him, and he succeeded in silencing the Master of 619 during a subsequent rematch on an episode of SmackDown. In a conversation with Mike Jones in DC, Kross made it clear that he has unfinished business with AJ Styles.
“You bet your top dollar there will be,” Kross confidently expressed, hinting at the potential for more encounters with AJ Styles in the future. “Aside from Rey Mysterio, who I feel we have unfinished business, and I wouldn’t be surprised if we revisit that one day. He’s on Raw and I’m on SmackDown right now, but working with Drew [McIntyre] was very physical, and I very much like that.”
