Convinced that Kross has the tools to emerge as a main event talent in WWE, Jericho spoke glowingly about the NXT star in the latest episode of Chris Jericho's Saturday Night Special.
"They need to get him out of NXT. I think it would be better to just have him in the WWE. They got to build him up as they do but I think he's going to be a big star," Le Champion said about Kross.
After debuting during the April 8th edition of NXT, Kross already in line to challenge NXT champion Keith Lee, a month after scoring a pinfall victory over Tommaso Ciampa at NXT Takeover: In Your House.
Jericho opined that Kross benefits immensely from having real-life girlfriend Scarlett Bordeaux by his corner.
"(Kross has) huge potential, he's a mean-looking guy, and him and Scarlett together are a great package. They look great and I love their entrance. I think that over time, as he becomes a better worker, he is going to be very big in the WWE," added Jericho.
Besides Jericho, a number of podcasters and retired wrestlers have praised NXT creative for building up an aura around Kross and Scarlett, predicting a bright future for the talented couple.
Earlier this week, we reported that WWE boss Vince McMahon is determined to "create new stars," especially with the COVID-19 pandemic sidelining superstars such as Roman Reigns, Daniel Bryan, Austin Theory, Apollo Crews, Sami Zayn, and Liv Morgan, among others.
