Killer Kross Scrapped AEW Plans Revealed

Killer Kross Scrapped AEW Plans Revealed WWE

W. Morrissey, the former Big Cass, made his AEW debut on the May 4 episode of AEW Dynamite, when he emerged as MJF’s hand picked challenger against Wardlow.

However, per Fightful Select (subscription required), Morrissey’s wasn’t the only AEW debut planned as part of the storyline, as AEW reportedly reached out to Killer Kross (Karrion Kross) for a match in the story, but two sides couldn’t come to terms for the appearance and it was scrapped.

At the ROH Supercard Of Honor Post-show scrum, Tony Khan said that he enjoyed Killer Kross and Scarlett’s work and he was open to doing something with them in the future. Kross was approached by AEW after those comments and a tentative plan for him to work the May 4 show was mentioned.

The talks reportedly fell apart closer to the show, when Kross became aware that his wife Scarlett would not be a part of the presentation in AEW. Kross was concerned that his introduction to the AEW audience would mimic that of his WWE debut against Jeff Hardy, as opposed to the presentation the duo had on NXT.
