Killer Kross was one of the top Superstars in NXT, as he eventually won the NXT Championship on two separate occasions. However, his main roster run was dull and forgettable in comparison. He also makes as much money in the independent circuit as he did in WWE.

Killer Kross was eventually let go by WWE after getting stuck with a gimmick he had no desire of getting into. Following his release, Kross eventually made his way back to the independent circuit alongside his wife Scarlett Bordeaux.

While speaking on The Wrestling Inc. Daily, Killer Kross and Scarlett Bordeaux talked about their time back in the independent circuit. Both of them revealed that they earned as much in the indies as they did in WWE.

“Financially, I will just say it — we are making the same as a WWE main roster salary,” she said.


“I knew that we were going to be able to. I just didn’t know that it was going to happen this fast,” he said.

Killer Kross’ email also blew up with offers after his WWE release. Killer Kross also previously locked down his ring name. We’ll have to see what the future holds for both Kross and Bordeaux, as they are certainly happy working in the independent circuit right now.
