Another blow to NWA, losing one of their semi-regulars. Matt Cross is a good addition to any roster. Also, they said he’ll be representing Azteca Underground. Guess he has ties to to that masked Son of Havoc guy. Probably met him on the open road.

Very happy to see Cross getting an opportunity. I’m blown away by the fact he’s never had a deal with Impact or ROH, or even a real shot in AEW.

He was briefly in ROH between late '06 and late '07/early '08. A member of the Resilience faction with Austin Aries and Erick Stevens.

Oh, you’re right. Totally forgot about those factions during that era where they were doing the taped PPVs.
And there was also Wrestling Society X in the same ballpark era.

That said, he’s somebody whom in the last few years, definitely seems like he’s missing from a national platform.
