When you can post a photo of yourself with your grandmother on her 84th birthday both throwing the middle finger in the air, it tells the world you might just be close. We love it, and we think it’s so important that people are close to their grandparents. They are the story tellers of the world; the living historians, and often the most educated, brilliant minds alive.
8. He Enjoys Travel
In an Instagram post shared in October 2020, he mentions that trave is a way to walk through life with your eyes open rather than closed. It’s a sweet way to look at spending time in a place that is not your home, and everyone should take a moment to better themselves by traveling more often to experience more things.
9. He’s Thoughtful
It might be easy for those who don’t know him to have some pre-conceived notions about what a pro wrestler might be like, how they might think or live, or what they’re all about, and one of those notions might be that they’re not overly thoughtful. Perhaps you think wrestlers are all about brute and not brains, but this is not the case for Karrion Kross. He’s a man unafraid to share his thoughtful feelings on his social media platforms in the form of a well-captioned post.
10. He’s Relatively Private
He does give his fans a glimpse into his life and his personal feelings, but he doesn’t do it in a way that allows us to know too many things about what he’s doing privately. Work is very obviously important to him, and he makes that clear, but he also knows how to keep what’s really important out of the press.
