Killer Kross has asked for his release from Impact Wrestling due to unhappiness over creative and pay.
On Monday, Pwinsider.com reported that Kross has been unhappy with the current multi-year deal he signed with the company since a year ago and requested a raise in pay that is based on what his market value could be outside of Impact.
While the major issue has been on the money side, he did raise some concerns about how he is being used from a creative standpoint. He reportedly pushed for a six-figure guaranteed deal that would bring him far more than he was currently making working for Impact.
The promotion countered with an offer for a new, restructured three-year deal but that money offered was well below the six-figure per year deal. His current deal calls for him to be paid by each date he works but he wanted a more guaranteed deal that would pay him a base salary.
Kross turned down the new deal and asked for his release a week ago in order to explore his options elsewhere. It was noted that after he had a tryout with WWE in the past, the company is interested in him.
Kross’ request for a release has not been granted and that Impact has no current plans to offer him a release. He signed with Impact in 2018. Relations between the two sides remain professional.
