Killer Kross has officially been signed by WWE to report to the Performance Center in Tampa. On a deal originally billed at the beginning of Feb., Kross and other standout Indy wrestler, Timothy Thatcher, are the newest recruits signed. Rumors that Kross will bypass the developmental system haven’t been proven true or false, but Kross’s presence on twitter has left everyone wanting more.
“You never really know, until you know. Never be sure unless you’re DEAD sure,” responded Kross to a fan.
Smackdown (Friday) 2/21/2020
Friday night brought the return of the man with the longest winning streak in wrestling history, Goldberg. In the main event, he returned to welcoming arms from the WWE fans but was cut short by “the fiend” Bray Wyatt. Goldberg caught Wyatt with a spear, but after the lights went out the body of Wyatt was nowhere to be seen as his laughs rang through the stadium.
Raw (Monday) 2/17/20
The Viper struck again on Monday as the “Monday night Messiah” unveiled his first sermon to the masses. Entangled in a vicious rivalry “the viper” Randy Orton assaulted Matt Hardy again, crushing his neck with a con-chair-to on the steel steps. Hardy’s promo was one of his best in recent memory and when these two meet in the ring, it’s going to be one hell of a fight.
After giving his sermon on Monday night, Seth Rollins caught a stunner from Kevin Owens setting up another massive tag match in the main event. Owens tagged with the Viking Raiders to defeat Buddy Murphy and AOP. The match didn’t quite deliver like last week’s main event, but it continued the Ownes and Rollins rivalry.
AEW Dynamite (Wednesday) 2/12/20
History was made when Cody and Wardlow stepped inside 2 miles of cold hard steel in AEW’s first-ever Steel Cage Match. Blood was spilled on the canvas as Wardlow brutally beat down Cody for the majority of the match. Near the end, it would be MJF’s ring that doomed Wardlow as Cody hit a cross Rhodes after stealing it. In a move of death-defying caliber, Cody scaled the Cage and hit a moonsault from the top for the win.
NXT (Wednesday) 11/13/19
Coming off of an electric TakeOver Portland event, NXT was set to rock the house. After retaining his title at TakeOver, Jordan Devlin faced Leo Rush again for the title. Devlin retained his title by evading rush’s top rope splash and ending him with the Devlin Slide for the pinfall. It was a great display for the cruiserweight division and both competitors.
Tommaso Ciampa vowed revenge on Johnny Gargano after he cost him his NXT championship in Portland. While not getting his hands on Gargano Ciampa, he turned his brutally on Austin Theory laying him out.
The night ended with Velveteen Dream squaring off against Roderick Strong. After remarks made by Dream, Strong went into this match expecting nothing but devastation by his hands. A motivated Dream was too much, though, after he took out all of the Undisputed Era he served up a dream valley driver for the pinfall.
