Tony Khan Says He Likes Killer Kross And Scarlett, Could’ve Seen Them Fitting On ROH Supercard

Tony Khan is a fan of both Killer Kross and Scarlett Bordeaux.

On Friday, April 1, ROH returned from their hiatus with Supercard of Honor. Also of note, this was the first event for the promotion since being purchased by Tony Khan last month.

Two names who were said to have, at one point, been in talks about appearing on Supercard of Honor were Killer Kross and Scarlett. Tony Khan addressed the report by saying that though he is a fan of both, neither was locked in for anything specific. He notes that the old management team reached out to a lot of people, but he was more concerned with staying true to the stories of ROH.

"They weren’t booked by...nothing was really booked until I took over. There was some stuff that had been announced, but they had never been announced on the show. Given some of the stuff on the show, I thought...I really like Killer Kross and Scarlett, I don’t think they were specifically locked into any match or a specific thing, although it’s possible the prior management had talked to them. The prior management had talked to a lot of people. I tried to stay true to the stories of Ring of Honor and I want to build a new era of Ring of Honor and I tried to feature a lot of the former names and a lot of names of the past and also debut people in Ring of Honor for the first time, some wrestlers from AEW like Brian Cage and Swerve and others. It was very cool and there was a lot of people who had history in Ring of Honor and wrestled there in the past or recently who are in AEW. When I took over the booking, there had only been a few things announced and that wasn’t one of the things and there was no match locked in. Total respect for both of them and could’ve easily seen that fitting in too," Khan said.

Kross and Scarlett were released by WWE in November 2021. In the time since, Kross has been appearing for Major League Wrestling and the Control Your Narrative promotion. He did an interview with Sean Ross Sapp before his return to the ring. You can check that out here.
