It looks like we almost got to see an interesting matchup featuring a prominent free agent.
Fightful Select has reported that Killer Cross (formerly Karrion Kross in WWE) was originally approached to face Wardlow. The two sides were unable to reach an agreement and Tony Khan went in another direction. Khan is still open to working with Kross in the future.
“Killer Kross, formerly Karrion Kross, was approached for the match against Wardlow. However, we’re told the two sides couldn’t come to terms for the appearance and decided against it. At the ROH Supercard Of Honor Post-show scrum Tony Khan said that he enjoyed Killer Kross and Scarlett’s work and he was open to doing something with them in the future. Kross was approached by AEW after those comments and a tentative plan for him to work the May 4 show was mentioned.”
“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. Those that we’ve spoken to believe that AEW and Kross are on good terms and there’s a possibility they’ll do business in the future.”Fightful Select Report
Wardlow is scheduled to face Shawn Spears in a Steel Cage Match On Wednesday’s edition of AEW Dynamite with Double Or Nothing this weekend.
