WWE has officially announced two additions to the company.
On tonight's episode of Backstage, it was announced that Killer Kross and Timothy Thatcher have signed with WWE. Thatcher signing with WWE and reporting to the Performance Center had already been confirmed earlier in the day.
WWE.com announced that Kross has also reported to the Performance Center.
Dave Meltzer reported on Kross' status in the most recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter:
"It looks like the deal with Kevin Kesar, 34 (Killer Kross) is finalized since word in the indie world is he’s not taking dates after the ones over the next few weeks are finalized. He also pulled out of a mid-February Australia tour which gives the indication he’s starting very soon. The indication we were given from when he first talked with Paul Levesque about coming in is that he’d be fast-tracked, whether that means NXT television immediately or main roster, that I don’t know, but was going to be given a major push. Kross has denied ever meeting with Levesque but that’s become the common theme for wrestlers to try and indicate they aren’t going to WWE. He did essentially a farewell at the AAW show over the weekend and told MLW that after this weekend he’s not taking any new dates with them."
Months after he requested it, Impact Wrestling announced in December that they had come to terms on Kross' release.
Scarlett Bordeaux, who is in a relationship with Kross, signed with WWE and reported to the Performance Center after being granted her release from Impact last year.
