Former WWE star Killer Kross (Karrion Kross) competed in his first match since leaving the company on Friday night for the FSW (Future Stars of Wrestling) promotion.
After the match, Kross cut a promo for fans and said the following:
“Eight years ago, I got in front of many of you. And to see you guys here tonight, I just wanted to say that this has definitely been the roughest last two years in human history in a very long time. And it made me happy to see that you guys are sticking together and supporting professional wrestling. If you guys have known me for many years, you know I’m not into this pandering shit, I’m speaking to you from the heart. Thank you so much for staying the course with this company. It’s people like you guys who elevated me to be where I was. All of us here, created something for me, for you, years ago, and shit got weird in the last four months on TV, real weird. However, I will say this: the thing that we created here together, through these shows, we all got to see that on NXT. Which, in my opinion, is pretty fucking awesome. I will be back and I can’t wait to see you guys again on the next show. I will. If you’re going to take away anything I said tonight, remember this: the glass, no matter what, is always half full. Thank you, guys.”
