Last November the WWE made more budget cuts dropping a number of surprising stars including former two time NXT World Champion Killer Kross. Kross was a free agent as of early February this year after his non compete clause expired. Much has been said about the number of lost opportunities WWE has seen come to the forefront in the last two years including the mishandling of Kross. The age old story never changes down in NXT he was taken care of and made to look like a star, but upon arrival to the main roster everything changed.
Kross has a history in MLW spending time in the company before heading to NXT in early 2020 and based on the match results I have found he is unbeaten in two matches under the MLW banner. Keeping in mind though this is Kross's first stop since his release from WWE late last year a lot will be made about his return to MLW tonight. The only question is will Kross be around for the long term or is MLW the first stop on his road to redemption. A former World Champion and dominate force everywhere he appears MLW has seen there stock rise again with the return Killer Kross to the promotion.
His intentions will be known fairly quickly upon his return tonight at the Grady Cole Center. In my opinion, if Kross does stick around then it won't be long before he is gunning for championship gold or maybe he'll be looking for some dream matches first to cross of his list.
