Killer Kross was one of the top Superstars in NXT, as he eventually won the NXT Championship twice. However, his main roster run was simply abysmal in comparison. Kross also opened up about his future plans in pro wrestling.
Kross was eventually released by WWE after getting stuck with a gimmick he had no interest in portraying. After his WWE departure, Kross eventually made his way back to the independent circuit alongside his wife Scarlett Bordeaux.
While speaking on Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling Podcast, Killer Kross talked about the future of his pro wrestling career. He also detailed how there are two different kinds of pro wrestlers.
“I would like to keep working independently. I’ve got a film we’re supposed to be working on this year that’s been delayed to the end of the year just for COVID precautions or something like that from the beginning of the year. I’m excited about that. It’s going to be happening near the end of the year now. I’m reviewing some scripts for some films and for television,” Kross revealed.
“I’m hoping, and I was hoping to do this through WWE at the time, but I’m hoping through television and film that I will be able to acquire some new fans to bring them back to wrestling so they could be like, ‘Who’s this guy? Oh, he’s a wrestler. Where is he wrestling?’ I would just like to keep wrestling.”
“There’s a lot of people in this business, and I think fans can feel the difference between these two people, but there’s two kinds of people. There’s people who are doing this so they have enough money to retire, and they secretly hate it and they’re over it. Then there’s people who are doing this because they still love it, they need it in their lives, and they want to be connected to people. I’m that guy. I’m not making millions of dollars doing this. I’m not even on television right now, not really. But I’m wrestling virtually every single weekend if not several times a month because I love being in front of the people. I love creating this for them. I’m just enjoying this on a whole new level all over again and I’m excited to see where it takes me. I recently worked with New Japan Pro Wrestling and MLW is coming up soon. There’s a bunch of really fun indie shows that are going to be coming up that are all going to be on the FITE app.”
