    Kross asking for his Release

    Unhappiness over creative and pay has led to a rift between Impact Wrestling and Killer Kross, PWInsider.com has learned.

    We have been told by numerous sources that Kross, 33, has been unhappy with the current multi-year deal he signed with Impact a year ago and has requested a raise in pay, based on what his market value could be outside of Impact Wrestling. We are told that Kross has also raised some concerns about how he is being used from a creative standpoint, but the major issue that has caused the schism between the two sides is financial.

    Sources indicate that Kross, unhappy with his current pay scale, pushed for a six-figure guaranteed deal that would bring him far more than he was currently making working for Impact.

    The Impact side of the story is that Kross was offered and agreed to a deal a year ago when he was relatively unknown (on a national level) and that Kross agreed to those terms. Now that Kross has had a year on their TV (raising his profile obviously) and voiced his financial concerns, we are told that Impact countered with an offer for a new, restructured three-year deal but that that money offered was well below the six-figure per year deal Kross was looking for. We are also told that Kross’ current deal pays him by the date, while he was seeking a more guaranteed deal that would pay him a base salary vs. paid by the date booked, since many Impact contracts don’t guarantee a set number of dates per year – and that Kross was pushing for a guaranteed salary.

    After turning down the restructured deal, sources indicate that Kross asked for a release from his Impact contract a week ago, seeking to explore his options elsewhere. Kross has had WWE tryouts in the past and we are told there’s been interest in him there and in other places in recent months, so it wouldn’t be a far-fetched notion in the current pro wrestling landscape that he’d likely to secure a spot somewhere.

    Thus far, we are told Kross' request for a release has not been granted and that Impact has no current plans to offer him a release. Kross, who debuted for the company in 2018, is under contract for several more years based on the deal he signed in 2018.

    Relations between the two sides remain professional, we are told.

    Kross appeared on the Impact tapings in Philadelphia as part of a program with Eddie Edwards, so he will be on TV for the next several weeks. Impact’s next TV tapings are in New York City in early June, which would be Kross’ next expected appearance.
    For real Impact has not used him well lately that's damn sure. He came in and the guy was taking out talent backstage before his debut, and the momentum he had going with Aries and Moose was on point. When he broke out he was doing well, now he's playing Hide Kenny from Edwards with that feud going on. Granted I'm the type of guy to stick to the Contract you signed, but I'm glad he said something because right now they might be losing a megastar I feel in Kross if he leaves. The Man can legit scare you to death with his facial expressions or show intelligent he is with his words. He just needs to put together the Ring work more and he could legit be a top star in any Company if given the chance.

    I struggle to see how Killer Kross is in the right in this situation. Before going to Impact, no one knew who he was. Now, regardless of whatever unhappiness he may be feeling with creative, he's got a bit of a name solely because of Impact.

    He signed a contract, not exactly sure how he's going to leave. If I was Impact I wouldn't grant it, it would seriously create a bad precedent. Similar to Luke Harper, who signed a contract, and wants out. I was listening to John Pollock talking about it, and he was saying it wasn't fair that his time froze when he was out injured. I guarantee WWE has a clause in their contracts stating that when out on injury it would prolong the contract, if it didn't I'm sure by this point someone would challenge that.

    Not the greatest time right now Kross wanting out at one moment, and I'm hearing Scarlett and Grace could be gone as well if all goes badly in the next week or so. Get this the past Seven Months Grace has been with Impact without a Contract being signed by her. You would think they would of been on her about it especially since they signed some other Talents long term in the Knockouts Division. I hope neither lady leaves Impact.
