Karrion Kross and Scarlett are back in WWE.

The end of tonight’s SmackDown saw the return of Karrion Kross and Scarlett to the company. As Drew McIntyre was cutting a promo on Roman Reigns ahead of their match at Clash at the Castle in September, the screen went gray, with ominous music playing as Scarlett appeared on the entrance ramp. Kross appeared and attacked McIntyre from behind. Kross stared down Roman as Scarlett put an hourglass in the ring. She turned the hourglass upside down, with the sand falling to the bottom as Kross pointed at Reigns to end the show.

Fightful had reported on Friday that WWE had interest in bringing back Kross, who along with Scarlett was released on November 4 of last year after a short run on the main roster.

As NXT Champion, Kross was called up in July of last year and lost his first match on Raw against Jeff Hardy. He soon started to appear on TV wearing a helmet and suspenders. After being taken off TV, he was released in November along with Scarlett, who despite being called up to the main roster never appeared on TV.

Since being released, Kross has continued to wrestle on the independent scene, making appearances for NJPW Strong, Warrior Wrestling, and MLW. He appeared on Ric Flair’s Last Match this past Sunday, defeating Davey Boy Smith Jr..
