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 just abysmal. Kross also explained why turned down an offer to debut in AEW.

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.

Fans were also surprised Kross was never in AEW, to begin with. While speaking on the Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling podcast, Killer Kross explained why turned down Tony Khan’s offer to debut in AEW.

“There’s a story that leaked recently about me being in conversations with Tony Khan and AEW. Like some conversations are meant to be private. I like the guy [TK]. I’m not gonna go out there, you know, what I mean. Discuss what was said. But there’s a lot of people that upon getting that phone call, which is take his money. And, you know, maybe they’re in a position where like, they absolutely have to. I’m not going to do that to him. I have too much respect for him and the place that my friends at work there to just take the money and come in and do something that I am absolutely certain in that conversation is less than what I’m actually capable of doing for him and with everybody else.”


Killer Kross’ email also blew up with offers after his WWE release. Freddie Prinze Jr. wants to include him in his pro wrestling promotion as well. We’ll have to see what’s next in store for him.
