According to a report from Fightful Select, former WWE star Killer Kross was recently in talks with AEW for a possible appearance. Kross was apparently being considered for the role of Wardlow’s opponent on the May 4th 2022 edition of Dynamite that ended up going to William Morrissey instead.
The site noted the following about why things didn’t work out between Kross and AEW…
“Where we’ve heard that talks fell apart was as the date got closer, Kross became aware that his wife Scarlett would not be a part of the presentation in All Elite Wrestling. Kross was concerned that his introduction to the AEW audience would mimic that of his WWE debut against Jeff Hardy, as opposed to the successful NXT formula that helped lead him to two NXT Championships.”
The belief is that the two sides are on good terms and are open to working together in the future.
