Karrion Kross, the 38-year-old wrestling sensation, dropped a cryptic video on X. Recently, the former NXT Champion revealed a new alliance with the notorious Authors of Pain, Paul Ellering and Scarlett Bordeaux. The new faction name, ‘The Final Testament’ was announced earlier in another cryptic video.

The video prominently featured Scarlett and Kevin Sullivan, creating an atmosphere of intrigue and anticipation. Kross explicitly rejected the offer of salvation. The footage, skillfully intertwined with clips of Sullivan’s Satanic past, hinted at a looming societal shift. The 38-year-old Superstar boldly declared that the dawn of a new era would be orchestrated by “authors,” signaling the mysterious faction’s imminent arrival.

The video not only created suspense but also drew intriguing parallels between Kross’ crew and Kevin Sullivan’s infamous “family” from the early ’80s. This unexpected alliance brings an air of historical wrestling drama to the current WWE landscape.

Kevin Sullivan, known for his role in leading factions, has a rich history in regional territorial wrestling and WCW. From forming The Dungeon of Doom to plotting the alliance against Hulkamania, his legacy weaves seamlessly into Kross’ latest venture.

Under the name Final Testament, Karrion Kross recently shocked fans with an audacious attack on Bobby Lashley and The Street Profits on Smackdown New Year Revolution . The WWE Universe eagerly anticipates Final Testament’s next moves, wondering how the former NXT Champion and his faction will navigate the unpredictable twists of the SmackDown storyline.

Karrion Kross gets his last chance for redemption in WWE

Karrion Kross finds himself at a critical juncture in his WWE career, with his recent return to SmackDown signaling a potential last chance to secure his spot on the main roster. The journey has been tumultuous for the 38-year-old at that time, starting with a disappointing debut, where he suffered a quick defeat to Jeff Hardy, significantly denting his formidable character.

Despite holding the NXT Championship, Kross faced criticism for poor booking decisions that watered down his character and led to his abrupt release alongside Scarlett in 2021. Returning to WWE on the August 5, 2022 episode of SmackDown, Kross aimed for redemption.

His feud with Drew McIntyre saw highs and lows, with a notable victory at Extreme Rules but a subsequent loss at Crown Jewel. Despite a renewed feud with Rey Mysterio, the 38-year-old superstar faced setbacks, including an elimination by McIntyre at the Royal Rumble. 

However, Kross’ WWE career remains on shaky ground, with critics pointing to his inconsistent booking and character changes. The 2023 WWE Draft has brought the former NXT Champion and Scarlett to SmackDown, presenting a fresh opportunity. As Kross continues his journey, the question lingers: can he overcome the hurdles of past missteps and secure a lasting place in the ever-evolving landscape of WWE?
