Last night at the NXT tapings at Full Sail University, Chris Hero made his return to NXT as Kassius Ohno. He confronted Shinsuke Nakamura and made it clear that he wants a shot at the NXT Championship. If you haven’t seen it yet you can check out a video of Kassius Ohno’s return below.
WWE posted the following announcement noting that the arrival of Kassius Ohno will change the NXT landscape in a big way.
ORLANDO, Fla. — As first reported on Twitter, Kassius Ohno stepped between the yellow ropes for the first time in more than three years to confront NXT Champion Shinsuke Nakamura.
At the conclusion of the night’s event, Nakamura was celebrating with the NXT Universe when Ohno’s music suddenly blared through the arena. The returning Superstar — widely considered to be one of the world’s top competitors — wasted no time making his intentions clear, as he approached Nakamura, slapped the champion’s title while it rested on his shoulder and then took his leave as quickly as he had emerged.
Whatever happens as a result of Kassius Ohno’s huge return, this is certain — the landscape of NXT just changed in a big way.
Chris Hero is once again working with NXT as Kassius Ohno, but he’ll also be wrestling Zack Sabre Jr. at EVOLVE 77 on January 28.
It will be Chris Hero vs Zack Sabre Jr at EVOLVE on 1/28. It will be over in time to do a double header with NXT. https://t.co/4GzagPRT9q
