One of the biggest free agents in pro-wrestling has landed in NJPW.

Killer Kross – formerly Karrion Kross in the WWE – will make his debut for the promotion on April 1st.

His first match will be against none other than the leader of Suzuki-gun himself, Minoru Suzuki.

Kross will debut at the NJPW Strong event Lonestar Shootout which is being taped at WrestleCon.

Kross and NJPW posted a promo video which reveals his new look.

Other matches set for Lonestar Shootout are:

  • Jay White vs. “Speedball” Mike Bailey
  • Tomohiro Ishii vs. Chris Dickinson
  • Rocky Romero vs. Ren Narita
  • Juice Robinson, David Finlay, Daniel Garcia and Kevin Knight vs. Mascara Dorada, Karl Fredericks, Clark Connors and Yuya Uemura

Last November, Kross and his fiancé, manager Scarlett Bordeaux were released from WWE.
