Killer Kross has been on WWE’s radar in a big way and could be well on his way to WWE this WrestleMania season.
According to Wrestling Observer Newsletter, COO of WWE, Paul “Triple H” Levesque had a meeting with Kross this week. The 34-year-old wrestler is yet to ink a deal with the billion-dollar promotion but the “betting line” is that he will end up in WWE sooner than later.
“While not signed yet, the betting line is that Kevin Kaser, 34 (Killer Kross) ends up here. There was thought to be interest in him across the board in wrestling due to his look. Multiple sources said Kaser and Paul Levesque were to have met this week.”
With the Royal Rumble coming up, could Cross be a surprise entrant in the Men’s Elimination match?
Meanwhile, WWE is working hard to establish its next big Mexican star. Rey Mysterio doesn’t have much time left in the ring and the company needs to fire on all cylinders to put their next Latin American star over. The masked legend recently stated that he will retire only after his son, Dominick‘s in-ring debut.
WON reports that Andrade and Mysterio will continue to wrestle for the United States Championship until Humberto Carrillo returns and challenges El Idolo.
“Mysterio was supposed to be the third person in that feud (Owens, Joe and Seth Rollins‘ faction) but they are working the short-term Mysterio vs. Andrade program until they work their way out of it. Originally, and this doesn’t appear to have changed, the idea was for Andrade to have a longer very serious program over the title with Carrillo as a way to get both guys over as singles Latino stars. But now with Murphy being added to the Rollins group, they are again one short on the face side.”
As previously reported, WWE nixed a US Title run for Humberto Carrillo and replaced him with Mr. 619. The young Superstar was supposed to win the gold before Survivor Series after which Andrade would’ve pinned him to crown himself the new champion. That, however, didn’t quite happen and El Idolo went on to defeat Mysterio for the title at Madison Square Garden.
