During Tuesday night’s edition of WWE Backstage, Ryan Satin announced that Kevin Kesar a.k.a. ‘Killer Kross’ has signed with WWE and also mentioned the signing of Timothy Thatcher that was reported on Tuesday.
In December 2019, it was announced that Kross had been released from his contract with Impact Wrestling after months of the two sides being at a stalemate.
Kesar, 34, has been wrestling since 2014 and had his first major role with AAA that began in March 2017 and would also be featured as The White Rabbit in Lucha Underground.
His big break came with Impact Wrestling, who ran numerous vignettes ahead of his debut in June 2018. As Killer Kross, he stood through his exceptional promo ability and great look. After serving as the muscle for Austin Aries, he would engage in a feud with Johnny Impact and later Eddie Edwards until things shut down between Kross and Impact.
Mike Johnson of PWinsider.com adds that Kross is scheduled to be with NXT and that he has been in Orlando for the last several weeks.
The WWE has since posted a story noting that Kross and Thatcher have reported to the WWE Performance Center.
