Entire segment with Karrion Kross re-shot due to crowd chants. Crew members reportedly even lied to fans and encouraged to stay back.
This week on Monday Night RAW, Karrion Kross made his much awaited main roster debut. His first day however, wasn’t much to talk about. The NXT Champion lost to Jeff Hardy in a matter of minutes via a roll up. This has created quite a stir among the fans and the consequences were seen on NXT.
On this week’s episode of NXT, Kross was involved in a segment with Samoa Joe. He cut a promo on the Samoan Submission Machine only to escape before Joe ran out looking for a brawl. However, the segment had to be re-shot due to fans interrupting it.

NXT held television tapings last night from the Capitol Wrestling Center, and the fans did not forget that Kross’ loss to Hardy. According to Trent Osborne of Bodyslam.net, Kross was “showered with chants of Hardy from the moment he entered the arena.”
The report states that the segment was “so taken over by the Hardy chants” that they reshot the full thing at the end of the tapings. The WWE NXT crew members reportedly asked the fans to stay back after the show had ended stating that something special was going to happen.
“They even lied to us and said something special was going to happen so we wouldn’t leave,” one source said. “[A Crew Member] told me the show wasn’t over. When [we] tried to leave, he told us there was a surprise.”
Kross’ defeat to Hardy was his first ever in the WWE. This has led to reports that there are some people unhappy with the treatment and believe that this puts to waste all the work that was put into making him a monster at NXT.
