WWE Sign Former IMPACT Wrestling Star Killer Kross, Confirm Signing Of Timothy Thatcher

Both have been assigned to NXT...

Yesterday, Squared Circle Sirens and PWInsider reported that WWE had signed EVOLVE and wXw star Timothy Thatcher. The company had wanted to sign Thatcher for a while, but he previously rejected their advances.

However, Ryan Satin confirmed on last night's episode of WWE Backstage that the company had finally gotten their man. The British Messiah is expected to feature heavily on NXT UK as the fifth member of Imperium as Thatcher has previously teamed with NXT UK stars WALTER and Marcel Barthel as Ringkampf.

Satin also announced that former IMPACT Wrestling star Killer Kross had signed with WWE. Ever since The Herald Of Doomsday was released by IMPACT in December, the company had been interested in adding Kross to their roster.

The company ultimately fought off tough competition for Kross' signature, but a meeting with WWE COO Triple H in January seemingly convinced the former Lucha Underground Star to sign.

Kross will now link up with his girlfriend Scarlett Bordeaux in NXT. He is not expected to spend very long in the black and gold brand, however, and is set to be fast-tracked to the main roster.
