Killer Kross, previously known as Karrion Kross, was released from his WWE contract back in November. Despite being one of the most popular stars on NXT, his run on Monday Night RAW was less than spectacular.

Kross recently appeared on “Busted Open,” where he talked about his career since his departure from WWE, as well as his thoughts on his controversial new outfit that had been debuted weeks into his run on RAW.

I wasn’t crazy about the outfit. Now I will say, I felt comfortable wearing it. I knew it looked a little silly, but from my point of view at the time, I wanted to embrace these ideas given to me because people previously had embraced the ideas I had given to them.

Kross also stated that he believes he should have followed his intuitions, and pushed harder to stick with what he had built in NXT, as he believed that fans were invested in it. Kross also revealed that he did bring up his doubts to management.

I did at a point, I believe it was the second week of the outfit, I did speak with management. I said, “Look, I’m saying this out of professionalism and respect. Based on the reaction from last week, which is measurable through social media and the live reaction as well, this is not being received well. So respectfully, I do believe we should attempt to change course at this point before it’s too late, or we can attempt to develop some sort of narrative that we can put on television where we can connect what I was doing on NXT vs what I’m doing here because people don’t understand what’s going on.”

However, it seems that his words fell on deaf ears, as WWE management told him to simply stay the course, which Kross “thought at the time was crazy.” However, not wanting to be unprofessional, Kross never outright said that he wouldn’t wear the outfit.

To be fired or released because this guy was unprofessional, he was a mark for himself, he didn’t want to do good business, they gave him all these opportunities and they asked him to do one thing and he wouldn’t do it. I didn’t want that to be a part of my history.

Fortunately for Kross, despite being released from contract and his unfortunate run on RAW, he has work till June. Kross does not want to put up the dates for all his bookings since he likes the idea of surprises. Regardless, whatever he has planned, will undoubtedly be entertaining.
