Killer Kross Talks WWE Being Interested In Him, All Elite Wrestling & IMPACT
ON WWE BEING INTERESTED IN HIM AFTER HE SIGNED WITH IMPACT:
That is absolutely true. Yes. (laughs) Everything happens for a reason. I don’t say this in a negative way but I don’t think people in WWE internally or the fan base would have had any idea how to receive this character if I had went there first with it. That has a lot to do with their general platform and their presentation. I don’t think they would have known how to implement this character. So, the fact that it is happening elsewhere… Maybe one day there will be a time and a place for this guy on that stage. But, this is the perfect place to be doing this.
HIS CURRENT RUN WITH IMPACT:
I have thoroughly enjoyed it. I don’t mean this in a derogatory way but I have enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I was going to because I have been given a lot of creative freedom as far as the things that I have been doing – So much that we don’t really have time to get into here. But, I’ve been able to take things that I’ve done elsewhere and independently really breathe here. That was always my intention. I’ve been getting this ready, what people are watching, for a long time on my own accord. So when people say about this so authentically, they really don’t realize I have been in this skin for a really long time. The fact that I am able to show people this – The odds of that happening are slim to none. But, the writers believed in this when they saw it. That had a big part in it. Because, they see everything. They are very over-critical for good reason. They oversee everything. They were like, “This needs to be on television.” I said, “Yeah, you’re right. It does! So, lets get it out there!” (laughs)
HIS THOUGHTS ON ALL ELITE WRESTLING:
This is excellent because, number one, it presents more working opportunities for all of us. Number two, the more pro wrestling there is, the better, I think. It is going to raise everybody’s game. The more availability of this. the more it is going to open the door to the casual viewer. Anything that this company is going to do with the players that have already been announced is going to be top notch outstanding. It is going to be conducive, in this whole grand scheme of things, to this business to continue being as successful as it is.
