IMPACT star Killer Kross was a guest on the WINCLY podcast to talk about his recent showdown with Jon Moxley at a Future Stars of Wrestling event in Las Vegas. Kross explains how he saw Moxley’s incredible vignette video following his departure from WWE, and how it inspired him to make one of his own.
I decided to go looking around for the gentleman in my city of Las Vegas which happens to be his city as well. Eventually we met paths at the Natural Born Killer show and that was kind of a rap. Definitely not a rap on the last time as it’s long from over. People got a taste of what it’s gonna be like when we go mono-e-mono and we are planning to revisit this in the future.
So, when I saw Moxley put out that promo of him running through the wall and cops chasing him, I was like, ‘Yes! This is what it needs to be.’ We’re pass the point of trying to fool people and they are an educated audience. The more that the industry tries to pretend that the audience is stupid, the more the audience is going to become an audience that watches to over-ridicule
Kross would then reveal how the conversation with Moxley to set up the match went down, and the advice the former WWE champion gave him.
I put that video out there and he saw it. He then reached out to me and said, ‘Don’t tell anybody. Let’s just do this.’ That’s just how it kinda happened. In terms of advice he had for me, he definitely told me that in confidence and it was super-flattering. I’ll just keep that to myself as there’s no point in putting that out there. But it was nice to be able to receive some wisdom as opposed to sitting under the tree of woe.
He also said that there is a good chance the two will face-off again.
100 percent; there’s nowhere where we’re not going to go with this and I think he feels the same as well. We’ve got a book that is open right now and that was just Chapter One. So, I’m very pumped for the future as it’s long from over.
