In an update on Killer Kross changing his ring name to Karrion Kross on the WWE NXT roster, the name change was Kross’ idea as opposed to the WWE’s, according to a report from Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful.

The report notes that for those who may be unaware, Carrion is the decaying flesh of dead animals, while there are also ties to Latin and Greek mythology as Kharon was the ferryman of Hades who carried the souls of the newly deceased across the rivers Styx and Acheron.
