Killer Kross Talks This Week's Uncaged Match, Johnny, Moose, Taya

Interactive Wrestling Radio on Wrestling Epicenter recently spoke to Killer Kross for an interview. You can see highlights below, and the full interview at this link.

His Fatal 4 Way Title Match Friday night at Uncaged: 
"Well, lets see what we have here. We have Johnny Impact. I guess you could say he's World Champion. We've seen him lose to me. We've seen him lose to Moose. We've seen him technically lose to Brian Cage twice or three times in one night. Then, there's me - The Uncrowned Impact World Champion. So, technically I'm defending my title in a Fatal 4 Way. That is how I'm observing this situation." 

On potentially having to face off with his partner Moose in the match: 
"Oh, he and I are going to be fine. We're not going to have any problems." 

On getting to work an angle with Johnny Impact: 
"It is very cool. This is something we have wanted to get around to for quite an extended period of time. We always knew this was going to happen in an odd way. We just didn't know where and we didn't know when. It is very cool to see it materialize. The odds that you get to work with a friend and have a program, perhaps, with someone that you trust, it is a great privilege." 

On possibly facing Taya Valkyrie in an inter-gender match: 
"I laugh at this subject maniacally and hysterically. We are living in a common era right now where hypocrasy, double standards, and social non-issues seem to really rule the issues people choose to discuss. And, they choose to discuss these things from a very absurd emotional state rather than a critical thinking point. The fact of the matter is professional wrestling is a performance art and in the year 2019, no one is going to be convincing anyone that this is "real" in comparison to Mixed Martial Arts and any other contact sport. A lot of people in our industry get offended when you discuss it like this because we get hurt all the time and the life of it is very real. I wouldn't go as far as to use the word "fake" because the word "fake" is really a very broad stroke that takes a piss on everything that we are doing. It's a show! It's a show! We have a lot of characters, we have writers! People know these things! So, you have people who want to be recreationally outraged about anything they possibly can and this, Inter-gender wrestling, is just another subject that they're not exercising any critical thought in. When you go watch the Terminator - This is one of the greatest Sci-Fi movies of all time. Maybe not a movie for everybody. But, for the most part, it is iconic. The script, the delivery, the execution of this film spawned a lot of different underdog stories for women. You can look at Terminator as a masochistic, horrible, pro masculine leaving the woman as the underdog. Or, you could look at it as Linda Hamilton had an excellent opportunity to showcase that a woman could carry a movie. She did that in Terminator 2 as well. There is a giant robot bodybuilder trying to kill a woman for two hours! Everyone went and watched it and enjoyed it. It's a performance art! It is not exactly "real", OK? The way I observe this is men and women belong in the ring together. It is not a problem. It is not something that there has to be a broad, mass abundance of. But, I think it is time for people to relax. And, quite honestly, it is more or less a back handed compliment to tell a woman that they can't be in the ring with a man. If we want to preach equality and we want everyone to have an equal opportunity, allow a woman to have an equal opportunity to be in the ring with a man. It is a performance art! We're not actually going to try and kill each other! This is a TV show. People need to calm down! (laughs) I appreciate the emotional investment that people have in our program and in wrestling - I really do. I'm not trying to take anything away from that. But, enjoy the show! It is meant to elicit an emotional response. Allow us to take you on a ride!"
