Karrion Kross is set to face Santos Escobar tonight on NXT TV, but it won’t be the first time in his career that he has violently crossed paths with the leader of Legado del Fantasma.
The issues between Kross and Escobar in NXT began a few weeks ago after the Cruiserweight Champion spoke to the trash about Karrion during an in-ring promo on the weekly show.
This caused the former NXT champion to set his sights on Santos and quickly escalate the situation in the weeks that followed.
To most viewers, these encounters most likely seemed like the start of a new rivalry. However, those who have followed their careers know there is a bit more.
Their beef dates back to 2017, when Karrion (formerly Killer Kross) made his AAA debut – a popular promotion in Mexico – helping John Morrison defeat Escobar (formerly Hijo del Fantasma) in a high-profile fashion.
