According to the latest reports, Vince McMahon pulled Karrion Kross off the TV and released him because he didn’t get over with the audience.
On Thursday eve, WWE released Karrion Kross with a bunch of other superstars including his fiance Scarlett Bordeaux.
On the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it was reported that Kross failed to get over with the audience ever since his main roster debut. The company was also planning to change the character of Kross for the third time.
