More on Killer Kross’ Release Request from Impact Wrestling; Impact’s Pay Raise Offer Amount

As noted before, Killer Kross reportedly requested his release from Impact Wrestling last week due to issues regarding his pay and the direction of his career in the company.

Wrestlezone reported that Kross’ pay raise request was for an amount similar to some of the company’s top stars, who are reportedly earning in the six-figure range for salaries.

It was also reported that Impact’s counter offer was for around half of what Kross requested and was lower than a NXT entry level contract, which are typically around $45,000 per year.
