Killer Kross was one of the hottest free agents in wrestling at the end of 2019 and early 2020, before he ultimately ended up signing with WWE, where he became a two-time NXT Champion.
Kross recently spoke to Chris Van Vliet, where he explained his reason for choosing to sign with WWE over other promotions, namely All Elite Wrestling, when he was a free agent.
Kross simply explained:
“Well, I feel like there’s a lot of people out there who are gonna relate to this and there’s a lot of people who are not gonna relate to this. But I wanna be honest with you. I was honest with you last time. I knew since I was a little kid when I was watching this on TV that I could be there and I could do this and perform at the highest level. I knew that since I was a little kid and little kids think they know everything. So, it’s hard for your parents and your family and your friends to really get behind statements and these ideas that you have as a child because they wanna steer you in the right direction. They don’t wanna burst your bubble but as time went on, nobody in my family was ever doing anything like this. It just seemed like such a foreign idea to get involved with that but to me, it wasn’t. I’m telling you, man I felt something here as a kid that told me that I could do it. It was the first thing I ever watched was WWF/WWE and part of me always wanted to be there.”
Karrion Kross was released from WWE back in November following a brief main roster stint. Kross recently reflected on his time on WWE’s main show.
Kross was one of over 80 names released from the company last year, and WWE has already released several names in the year 2022. For a full list of every WWE release of 2022, click here.
