Matt Riddle and Kassius Ohno were scheduled to face each other on the next edition of NXT. However, the King of Bros didn’t feel like waiting, opening NXT TakeOver: WarGames II by challenging the Knockout Artist.
Ohno came out on the mic, saying Riddle was so dumb that he didn’t know he wasn’t supposed to fight at TakeOver. However, he felt up to the task and stated that Riddle wouldn’t even remember the match.
However, before the bell even finished ringing, Ohno attempted a cheap shot, which resulted in a high knee from Riddle. 1-2-3, and Riddle took Ohno down with ease.
