Former IMPACT Wrestling star Killer Kross, a Combat Republic favorite, finally made his debut in the closing moments of last nights NXT, attacking Tomasso Ciampa
Minutes after the show ended it was revealed that hi new name is going to be “Karrion Kross”. Upon first hearing it, I hated it. WWE has decided to change his name for two reasons, 1) trademarking purposes and 2) they really do not want one of their stars being called “Killer” in a PC environment. Here’s his new T-Shirt with the new name on it.
One of our followers sent me the meaning behind the name, and it fits right in with the Kross persona. According to The Websters Dictionary *carrion means “dead and putrefying flesh”. So now i’m on board.
When Kross signed he was originally slated to be fast tracked to the main roster but as with many things in WWE world, especially these days, plans changed and he will now be a member of the NXT roster for the foreseeable future.
