A former WWE star has revealed that he has turned down an AEW offer from Tony Khan.
Killer Kross was released from WWE on November 4, 2021 and has appeared for various promotions since then.
It was recently revealed that Kross was originally planned to be Wardlow’s opponent on the May 4 edition of AEW Dynamite in the lead-up to Double Or Nothing.
On the latest edition of the Two Man Power Trip podcast, the two-time NXT Champion discussed being selective on how he’s being presented and talking to Tony Khan about coming into AEW.
In regards to Tony Khan, Kross said:
“I like the guy.”
“there’s a lot of people who upon getting that phone call would’ve just taken his money, and maybe they’re in a position where they absolutely have to.”
Kross went on to say that the ideas he heard wouldn’t be the best fit for him as a performer and added:
“I’m not going to do that to him. I have too much respect for him and the place and my friends that work there to just take the money.”
Killer Kross was quite successful in a short amount of time for WWE, winning the NXT Championship twice before getting called up to the main roster.
His run on Raw didn’t go as well before his eventual release at the end of 2021.
As previously mentioned, Kross was pitched to face Wardlow on the May 4 episode of Dynamite, but it ended up being W. Morrissey who took the spot and debuted on the show.
