Killer Kross is a free agent and, at the moment, he's uncertain about his future. Kross was released from his IMPACT contract in December, putting him on the market. He is set to compete at MLW Fightland on Feb. 1, but his future following Fightland is up in the air.
It was reported on Jan. 17 by the Wrestling Observer that Kross was set to or had already met with NXT Founder and WWE Executive Triple H. Fightful Select reported on Jan. 26 that as of last week, Triple H and Kross had not had a face-to-face meeting.
In an interview with Two Man Powertrip, Kross himself denied ever meeting Triple H.
"I have to address this. You had mentioned Hunter or Triple H. I've never met him. I don't know where the story came up exactly first in the dirt sheets and I don't really pay that much attention to them, but I've never met him. I think it's cool and kind of flattering that those stories circulate but I'd like to meet him. If someone could make that happen that would be great. I know it's not meant to be malicious or whatnot and it's fun to fantasize about that stuff but unfortunately that hasn't happened yet," he said.
In addition to the report that Triple H and Kross had not met face-to-face, Fightful Select reported to not expect Killer Kross to be available for bookings during WrestleMania week. Kross is free to sign with any promotion, though he says he isn't sure what is next for him.
"I'll tell you too and you don't have to read a dirt sheet. I'll just tell you the truth and if any of them had asked me this I would have told them this as well. I don't know where I am going to end up yet and that doesn't bother me, and it shouldn't bother anyone else," he stated. "This is a huge decision. This is a life changing decision and I enjoy the idea of commitment so when I make the decision on which direction I am going to go in, I need to be 100% committed in my mind and I need to have everything to lay as it should be and I understand the speculation that people are making and it doesn't bother me and it's cool. What's wrong with being the subject of conversation in the pro wrestling industry? I'm flattered by it and I am humbled by it, but the truth of the matter is I don't know where I am going next. I have ideas and I am in conversations with many different channels but there is such a massive amount of embellishment out there that sometimes I feel bad reading it, but I'll just mind my own business and be over here."
In the immediate future, Kross will take on Tom Lawlor at MLW Fightland on Feb. 1. Kross recently wrestled at AAW A New Dawn on Jan. 24.
