IMPACT Wrestling Release Killer Kross

He hadn't wrestled in the promotion since July...

Back in May, IMPACT Wrestling star Killer Kross requested his release from the promotion. Kross then appeared on the Wrestling Perspective Podcast where he explained he wanted to leave the promotion because he felt his current $20,000 per year deal was not good enough, and he both needed and deserved to be paid more.

The Herald of Doomsday also said that when he initially told IMPACT he wanted a pay rise, instead of listening to his grievances, they told him to get another job.

Following this, relations between Kross and IMPACT Wrestling continued to sour, and he hadn't wrestled for the promotion since Slammiversary in July. In September, IMPACT reportedly offered the former Lucha Underground star a new three-year deal in which he would make $180,000 in total.

Last night, IMPACT Wrestling announced that they had released Kross. While his contract was due to expire on December 31st, IMPACT could have extended it by another year.

In a short statement, they wrote: "IMPACT Wrestling has come to terms on the release of Kevin Kesar (Killer Kross)."

Since his release, Kross has released a video on social media, which you can watch below:
