Former WWE Champion Drew McIntyre thinks the returning Karrion Kross is getting the biggest opportunity of his career.
The Chosen One returned to WWE where he began working for NXT. In a matter of months, he became the NXT Champion. The following year, he moved to the red brand and began climbing to the top of the division.
On a recent episode of Friday Night SmackDown, McIntyre was attacked by the returning Karrion Kross. Speaking to Chris Van Vliet, the 37-year-old spoke about Kross' return and how he has the biggest opportunity of his career:
"I was very surprised. I didn't know till the very last second but for, you know, we can say a little more here than we say in general, but let's just say somebody who's worked hard for an opportunity, deserves that opportunity and he's getting the biggest opportunity of his career. Fortunate for him, it's not going to come at Drew McIntyre's expense." (From 15:06 to 15:30)
