Kross was attached in rumors to WWE and AEW after getting his release from Impact wrestling. His real-life partner Scarlett Bordeaux recently signed with WWE and reported to the Performance Center. This move puts them together again. Thatcher joins WWE after 15 years on the independents. He has wrestled for plenty of companies in that time, including EVOLVE, PWG, WXW, and MLW. The addition of both men adds to the talented roster of NXT going forward.

One thing to note from this episode: Eddie Kingston confronted Pope after some of Pope’s comments on Homicide. The promo was excellent, so if you don’t watch the whole episode at least check this promo out:
