Killer Kross Requests Impact Release

Unhappiness over creative and pay has led to a rift between Impact Wrestling and Killer Kross, PWInsider.com has learned.

We have been told by numerous sources that Kross, 33, has been unhappy with the current multi-year deal he signed with Impact a year ago and has requested a raise in pay, based on what his market value could be outside of Impact Wrestling. We are told that Kross has also raised some concerns about how he is being used from a creative standpoint, but the major issue that has caused the schism between the two sides is financial. 

Sources indicate that Kross, unhappy with his current pay scale, pushed for a six-figure guaranteed deal that would bring him far more than he was currently making working for Impact. 

The Impact side of the story is that Kross was offered and agreed to a deal a year ago when he was relatively unknown (on a national level) and that Kross agreed to those terms. Now that Kross has had a year on their TV (raising his profile obviously) and voiced his financial concerns, we are told that Impact countered with an offer for a new, restructured three-year deal but that that money offered was well below the six-figure per year deal Kross was looking for. We are also told that Kross’ current deal pays him by the date, while he was seeking a more guaranteed deal that would pay him a base salary vs. paid by the date booked, since many Impact contracts don’t guarantee a set number of dates per year – and that Kross was pushing for a guaranteed salary.

After turning down the restructured deal, sources indicate that Kross asked for a release from his Impact contract a week ago, seeking to explore his options elsewhere. Kross has had WWE tryouts in the past and we are told there’s been interest in him there and in other places in recent months, so it wouldn’t be a far-fetched notion in the current pro wrestling landscape that he’d likely to secure a spot somewhere. 

Thus far, we are told Kross' request for a release has not been granted and that Impact has no current plans to offer him a release. Kross, who debuted for the company in 2018, is under contract for several more years based on the deal he signed in 2018.

Relations between the two sides remain professional, we are told. 

Kross appeared on the Impact tapings in Philadelphia as part of a program with Eddie Edwards, so he will be on TV for the next several weeks. Impact’s next TV tapings are in New York City in early June, which would be Kross’ next expected appearance.

That's a shame. Scarlett's man is hot af. If Impact lets him go, WWE better snatch him up.

Everyone at May 13, 2019: "He should go to WWE. He's an amazing wrestler, has created an amazing character and they will use him better than Impact."

Everyone at May 13, 2020: "He shouldn't have signed with WWE, it was obvious that they wouldn't use him right. He should go back to the indies, WWE sucks."

Don't get me wrong, he's 100% right on asking to be paid his worth, but I am sick of the "he should sign with WWE" comments that are about to come om the IWC in general. Especially when we are trashing this company 24/7 and complaining about how they misuse talent.

Scarlegend has it made at Impact, so I can't see him going anywhere.

It's weird how Impact has these weird talent relations stories running online when the morale and direction has improved a lot under this current regime.

He's decently attractive and a good wrestler, but tbh, I really don't think he's all that hot nor an extraordinary wrestler. He doesn't have the star power I think he believes to have. The Marc Mero to Scarlett's Sable.

I know WWE kept delaying his medicals along with Anthony Bowens about a year or so ago and he signed with IMPACT. I think he'd be a huge get for AEW and isn't he pretty big in AAA?

That, and the sign to AEW comments can go as well. Like let them enjoy a little breather and offtime before y’all start bombarding their Twitter comments.

He's nothing special physically, at all. However if he's as good as people say, he should definitely explore his options while he can. It's just hard to say where, because WWE aint it.
