The “tic tock” as to where Killer Kross could land may have stopped, but the clock as to his time in WWE is just at the top of the hour.
Both he and Timothy Thatcher have reported to the WWE Performance Center, as announced by the WWE website, and the two big signees had their profiles run down as well.

Timothy Thatcher is a world-renowned mat wrestler widely regarded as one of the toughest grapplers inside the squared circle, and has competed against the likes of Drew McIntyre, NXT North American Champion Keith Lee and Matt Riddle, among others. Thatcher is a former EVOLVE Champion and WXW Unified World Champion. He’s also been a frequent tag team partner of NXT United Kingdom Champion WALTER.
Kevin Kesar, better known as Killer Kross, is a towering competitor at 6-foot-3 and 250 pounds, and has a background in catch wrestling and sambo. Kesar has competed in India and Mexico, and was recognized as a rising star of the squared circle by the revered Cauliflower Alley Club in 2018.
This past weekend, Kross competed at MLW’s Fightland event in South Philadelphia at the 2300 Arena and now we finally know a longer term landing spot for one of pro wrestling’s hottest free agents.
Reports of Thatcher signing with WWE came to fruition yesterday and he along with Kross headline a very strong class (literally and metaphorically).
