Impact Wrestling officials were reportedly not happy with Killer Kross’ recent interview with The Wrestling Perspective podcast. During the podcast, Kross revealed why he requested his release from Impact.
Impact Wrestling and Kross have been trying to reach a new deal for months now, with Impact going as far as to re-work his contract and working with him on outside independent bookings.
There are some people within the company who are comparing Kross to Eli Drake, who Impact wasn’t happy with after he did several interviews in which he reportedly said things they didn’t like. There are also some within the company who feel that Kross violated the non-disparagement clause in his current contract.
