After making a name for himself in Impact Wrestling, he signed with WWE and went to NXT where he was pushed as a top star. He became a two-time NXT Champion. Unfortunately, when he arrived on the main roster, WWE stripped him of what made him stand out such as his entrance, look, and Scarlett Bordeaux.
WWE had been planning to repackage him again before he was let go last year. He has yet to sign with a top promotion but has been working independent dates. Kross and Scarlett recently got married in Alaska.
