Killer Kross was one of the top Superstars in NXT, which led to him becoming a two-time NXT Champion. Unfortunately, his run on the main roster paled in comparison in every way possible.
Killer Kross debuted a new mask after he lost the NXT Championship. Since his first day on the main roster, he was seen without his fiancée Scarlett. This was already a cause of concern for many fans.
WWE was going to change Killer Kross’ gimmick for the third time. However, all of it was of no use as he was released last year as part of the company’s previous batch of cuts.
While speaking during tonight’s ROH Supercard of Honor Post-Show Media Scrums, Tony Khan explained why Killer Kross didn’t debut during the show.
Nothing was really booked until I took over. I think there was some stuff that had been announced but they had never been announced on the show. And given some of the stuff on the show I thought for example, and I really like him, I like Killer Kross a lot and Scarlett. I don’t think they were specifically locked into any matches but it is possible the prior management had talked to them, I think the prior management had talked to a lot of people.
I tried to stay true to the stories of Ring of Honor and I want to bring a new era of Ring of Honor and tried to feature a lot of the former names and names of the past and also debut some names for the first time, some wrestlers from AEW like Brian Cage, Swerve and others. It was very cool and there’s a lot of people who have a history in Ring of Honor and even recently who are in AEW. When I took over the booking, there had only been a few things announced and that wasn’t one of the things and there wasn’t a match locked in. Total respect to both of them and could’ve easily seen that fitting in too.”
We will have to wait and see whether Killer Kross and his fiancée will be making their way to ROH in the future or not. It seems that the door is not closed on them in AEW and ROH.
