The last-minute predictions for WWE Crown Jewel 2022 are on right now. One of the biggest questions in the minds of the fans is that who will win the Drew McIntyre vs Karrion Kross match on the show. Both Superstars are set to take on each other in a Steel Cage match in Riyadh this Saturday.
Karrion Kross made his return to WWE earlier this year on the road to Clash at the Castle 2022. He attacked Drew McIntyre straightaway. It looked like WWE would insert him in the Undisputed Universal Championship match in Cardiff. However, the same did not happen. Kross instead had a few squash matches before locking horns with McIntyre in a Strap Match at WWE Extreme Rules 2022.
The strap match ended in Kross’ favor thanks to his wife Scarlett Bordeaux’s assistance, but to ensure that such a thing does not happen again, WWE has booked a steel cage match between the two competitors. Scarlett cannot enter the cage. The winner will be decided by pinfall, submission or by escaping the cage.
Vince Russo predicts who will be the one to win Drew McIntyre vs Karrion Kross match
In a recent appearance on Sportskeeda’s Writing With Russo, former WWE writer Vince Russo predicted that Karrion Kross will win the match against Drew McIntyre. In his view, Kross is ‘purer’ than McIntyre at the moment.
“Kross [Karrion], at this time, is a little bit more purer than Drew. It’s just the collateral damage they have done with (McIntyre) in the past.”

McIntyre has always fallen short in big matches of his career while wrestling in front of a live audience. Meanwhile, Kross is destined to become one of the top guys on the WWE roster. Hence, it should not be a surprise if Russo’s prediction proves to be correct, and Kross beats McIntyre.
