Bordeaux’s boyfriend, Killer Kross, also recently asked for his release from Impact and talked about Bordeaux’s situation in an interview with the Wrestling Perspectives podcast. Kross said, “People don’t understand, she (Bordeaux) lives at home with her mom, still has a side job. She works a side job to support her wrestling. For where she’s at with things, it really shouldn’t be that way, in my opinion and I think that a lot of people would agree with me. She’s doing the absolute best that she can and I think where she’s at right now is so far beyond what she’s being compensated for. I think it would turn people’s stomachs if they knew the details about that.”
Radican’s Analysis: It’s a shame Bordeaux wasn’t making more money. Her character was a highlight of Impact week in and week out and she grew a lot in her role in the company stemming from her time in Ring of Honor. Bordeaux has also gotten over in AAA in Mexico, so I’m guessing she won’t struggle to get indie bookings and possibly land a much better deal in another company in the near future.
Killer Cross is extremely talented as well, but has not yet been granted his release by Impact.
