The WWE Performance Center has welcomed two new additions that will certainly be a great addition to the NXT brand – Killer Kross and Timothy Thatcher. They have reported already to the facility in Orlando, Florida, and officially working for the company.
Kross joins his real-life girlfriend Scarlett Bordeaux, who recently also signed a WWE deal. Kross wrestled for Lucha Underground, Lucha Libre AAA, and most recently Impact Wrestling. He was released from Impact Wrestling months after he refused to blade in his first blood match against Eddie Edwards at Slammiversary XVII, citing the lack of a doctor on hand and no blood testing beforehand. He was given the release he requested in December.
Thatcher, who will be 37 years old next month, is a 15-year in-ring veteran who has wrestled on the independents since his 2005 debut. He had stints with wXw, Championship Wrestling from Hollywood, EVOLVE, Major League Wrestling, Pro Wrestling Guerrilla, RevPro, Combat Zone Wrestling, and many others.
