As noted last week, Impact Wrestling has finally granted a release to Killer Kross and he is now free to sign with any company. He has committed to an appearance for MLW on February 1st but the big question is where he decides to sign with for the long term.
The @WrestleVotes insider account is reporting that WWE is pursuing him harder than most of the recent free agents. It makes sense because he has the potential to be a major star for any wrestling company he signs with. It seems like WWE has a solid shot at signing him, especially since his girlfriend Scarlett Bordeaux works there as part of NXT. Kross also has friends in All Elite Wrestling and he would likely get an offer from them. New Japan has to be considered an option as well and Ring Of Honor can help turn their ship around if they sign him to a good money contract.
Kross has drawn interest from WWE in the past. He was brought into the Performance Center for tryouts in the past before he signed with Impact and he’s made a couple of appearances on WWE TV, including an episode of Monday Night Raw in early 2015 as Darren Young’s tag team partner.
When I asked about Kross, the only thing I was told about him from someone in WWE is that, if he hasn’t already, he should get a better offer than most that have been offered and they are willing to have him start on Raw or SmackDown and fast track him into the upper card. Kross is in a great negotiating spot right now.
