Killer Kross Punished Due To Refusal To Blade?

Killer Kross Punished Due To Refusal To Blade?
Killer Kross hasn’t been seen on Impact Wrestling programming since he lost a First Blood match at Slammiversary, and we may now have a reason as to why we haven’t seen him since then.

According to Wrestlezone, Kross is being “punished” for refusing to cut himself (“blade”) in that match against Eddie Edwards. It was noted that there was some concern from a talent perspective over the lack of blood testing and the absence of a doctor or medic at the venue (Gilley’s in Dallas, Texas). It was also said that IMPACT officials were upset when they then had to go out and get fake blood for the match after Kross didn’t want to cut himself open.

As noted, Kross had requested a release from the company after seeking a better financial deal from Impact, which offered a reworked three-year contract that was far below the six figure deal Kross was shooting for. Impact sources, at the time, said that a release would not be granted but that everyone was still working together and was being professional.

Impact Wrestling is currently set for a round of TV tapings in Las Vegas this week. Kross is not currently advertised for the events.
