On this week’s WWE Backstage, WWE confirmed Timothy Thatcher and Killer Kross have signed with the company. Shortly after, WWE confirmed both Superstars are now at the WWE Performance Center.

Here is WWE’s official announcement:

Killer Kross and Timothy Thatcher report to WWE Performance Center – The newest recruits to report to the WWE Performance Center include two highly touted in-ring competitors.

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.

Both competed at MLW: Fightland this Saturday. Kross, 34, was granted his release by Impact Wrestling last December and recently said he was in talks with many companies. Thatcher, 36, is said to have turned down WWE offers in the past but has remained on the radars of the company. Thatcher has competed for EVOLVE, MLW, Pro Wrestling Guerrilla, wXw, Revolution Pro, and others.

Both signings can be described as “tremendous” for WWE as both Kross and Thatcher were some of the hottest free agents on the market until today. Their charisma, mic skills, and wrestling abilities stand no comparison.
