Killer Kross Set For MLW Return

Former WWE Superstar Killer Kross (Karrion Kross) will return to MLW for the first time since 2020.

The Killer Kross comeback will continue in MLW! A vignette promoting Kross’ imminent return to promotion aired during the most recent edition of MLW Fusion.

Kross will perform in an MLW ring for the first time since 2020 at the company’s Super Fight event, which takes place at the Grady Cole Center in Charlotte, North Carolina on February 26.

Shortly after making his MLW debut in February 2020, Kross signed for WWE and reported for duty on the company’s developmental brand NXT. Kross debuted for NXT in April 2020 and had the proverbial rocket strapped to him. He went on a dominant streak that culminated at NXT TakeOver: XXX with a win over Keith Lee for the NXT Championship. Kross relinquished the title a few days later due to a shoulder injury he sustained in the TakeOver: XXX main event, but won it back from Finn Balor upon his return in April of this year.

The 36-year-old was still NXT champ when he was called up to Raw, but he lost the title to Samoa Joe at NXT TakeOver 36 back in August. Kross was released by WWE along with several of his now-former colleagues on November 4.

Everything felt wrong and I felt something bad coming, like four months before it happened,” Kross said of his doomed main roster tenure during a recent chat with Renee Paquette on her The Sessions podcast, on which he was interviewed alongside his real-life partner and fellow-former WWE Superstar, Scarlett Bordeaux. “But everyone I would talk to was like ‘oh no. Everybody loves you. It’s good. You have no problems, yada, yada, yada.’ But I felt it coming. I tried to, as professionally, politely as I could, talk to people in the chain of command about that. And I just tried to be a good sport about everything,” he added.
