Killer Kross set for first post-WWE match at WrestlePro event


The former Karrion Kross's first post-WWE match has been announced.

Killer Kross will face Flip Gordon at WrestlePro Killer Instinct on Saturday, February 5, 2022 in Rahway, New Jersey. 

Kross was part of a WWE mass-release event on Thursday, November 4, just hours after the company announced that they had generated $255.8 million in revenue and $77.9 million in OIBDA in the third quarter of 2021.

Kross is a two-time former WWE NXT Champion, holding the title for a combined 140 days. A four-day run in August 2020 was cut short due to injury, but Kross regained the NXT title from Finn Balor at TakeOver: Stand & Deliver night two on April 8, 2021. Kross lost the NXT title to Samoa Joe at TakeOver 36 on August 22, 2021. 

Kross made his main roster WWE debut in a series of dark matches and an appearance on Main Event this past Summer. His television debut on Raw came on the July 19, 2021 episode. While still holding the NXT title, Kross lost to Jeff Hardy in 1:40 on that show. 

Kross's fiance Scarlett Bordeaux was also released on November 4, and was also announced for WrestlePro Killer Instinct. Bordeaux will take on Harley Cameron. 

A third match, Matt Cardona vs. Dan Maff, is also set for the event. Tickets for Killer Instinct have yet to go on sale, according to the company's website.
