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 discussed whether he will join AEW or not.
Kross was eventually released 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 to Kevin Kellam, Killer Kross talked about whether he will end up in AEW in the future.
“I’m trying to figure out the best way to say this, because you know they love to take things out of context. I’m an open book with this stuff. I’m open to working with any television company as long as there will be a time where we can sit down before we get started and figure out what the endgame is of what we’re doing. I’m not throwing any shade or trying to imply anything.”
“I’m not in a position where I absolutely have to say yes to anything that’s offered to me. I’m not scared of losing my fan base. I’m not scared of losing momentum. I see human beings every weekend. They tell us how they feel about us and the feeling is mutual. We’re very grateful for our fan base. We’re not feeling desperate to be back on TV. I know some guys feel like there’s this fear for the social media optics, for the optics of it.”
“With the experience that we just had on television, we don’t want to make the same mistake twice. We didn’t have the ability to listen to our audience and be like, ‘They’re right’, because this is what we signed up for. That’s not me complaining or being salty about it. We knew what we were getting involved in.”
“The next time we’re going to do something big, if it is with that company or another company, we want to make sure that all hands are on the wheel and we understand what it is exactly what we’re doing because I know what the fans want to see out of us. It’s up to me, actually, to make sure that the person I’m working for understands that because they have a lot of stuff to shuffle around and a lot to pay attention to. So if we can get to that point where we can sit down and create something collectively together where we know they’re gonna love this and enjoy it, I can be on board anywhere.”
Freddie Prinze Jr. wants to include him in his pro wrestling promotion as well. We’ll have to see whether Killer Kross will end up in Tony Khan’s company somewhere down the line or not.
