Karrion Kross came close to working with Bray Wyatt, although they never shared the WWE stage. Despite not having a direct encounter, their characters exhibited comparable dark and supernatural themes.
Regrettably, following Wyatt’s passing on August 24, Kross, along with fellow WWE colleagues, honored him with “Firefly” tattoos after WWE SmackDown on August 25. In a conversation with Chris Van Vliet on Insight, Kross disclosed that he had been scheduled to work with Wyatt at WrestleMania 39.
“We were supposed to work last WrestleMania and nobody knew that except for a collection of writers and people in the office. We were slated to do something. We would talk for hours about how we want to get into it, what we wanted to deliver creatively for people. Where we thought we both needed to be. We had ideas with Alexa [Alexa Bliss], Bo [Bo Dallas], Scarlett. Everything happened the way it did. He left a mark on anybody and everybody he ever met. It’s just very strange the way everything played out. Beautiful and tragic. He was always an inspiration to me and showed everybody warmth,”
