Killer Kross features on WWE Clash at the Castle 2022 Rumor Roundup
Killer Kross was one of the more shocking releases by the WWE. His presentation and overall gimmick was perfect for the main roster. Triple H recognized this and pushed him to the moon on NXT. Things took a confusing turn when he was called up to the main roster. WWE stripped away everything that made him special and made him wrestle in a ridiculous outfit.
With Triple H back in charge, things may look good for the former Karrion Kross. Dakota Kai’s return to the WWE has fueled speculation that other talents may find their way back to the company. Kross further fueled the rumors through his Instagram story:

Backstage update on Ric Flair’s health after his last match
Ric Flair wrestled his match with a pacemaker in his heart. He also bladed himself, much to the concern of the fans in attendance and people backstage. However, there’s pleasant news about his health condition after the match.
Mike Johnson of PWInsider reported that doctors were present backstage right after the match, and checked up on Flair’s health:
“The doctors were waiting for him the second he returned to the locker room area. He was obviously spent after the bout, but after resting and being checked out, he was saying he was starving and wanted to go eat. So, as scary some of the PPV bout was, we are told Flair is fine,” Johnson reported.
