He is best known for his time in WWE where he performs under the ring name Karrion Kross, and previously under the ring names Kevin Kross and Killer Kross in other promotions. Prior to his time at WWE, Kesar performed for Impact Wrestling, Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide (AAA), Major League Wrestling, and multiple promotions on the independent circuit.

In AAA, he was a member of the MAD and La Facción Ingobernable stables. He has also appeared on season four of AAA’s American project Lucha Underground as The White Rabbit, the leader of Paul London’s Rabbit Tribe stable. Kesar signed with WWE in February 2020 under the ring name Karrion Kross and began a winning streak on their developmental brand, NXT, that led him to winning the NXT Championship before having to relinquish it due to injury.

Kross regained the title in April 2021 at NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver. After making his main roster debut on the Raw brand that July, his winning streak was immediately broken, he lost the NXT Championship to Samoa Joe the following month and his on-screen character was subsequently altered. WWE ultimately released Kesar in November and he returned to the independent scene. In 2022, he married fellow wrestler Scarlett Bordeaux. The pair returned to WWE in August of the same year.
