On this week’s WWE NXT, former Impact Wrestling star Killer Kross made his much-awaited debut as Karrion Kross. According to many, WWE asked Killer Kross to change his wrestling name because they didn’t want their star to have ‘Killer’ in his name because Kross will feature in a PG-13 show. After talking to other WWE officials, Killer Kross, whose real name is Kevin Kesar changed his wrestling name to Karrion Kross for WWE.
