— NXT Talent Kassius Ohno was reportedly pulled from the most recent NXT television taping as trainers expressed concern over his lack of commitment to his strength and conditioning program.
Ohno was in line to be fast tracked to the main roster not so long ago, so this news has come as a big disappointment to people within developmental. Ohno previously worked as Chris Hero on the Indy scene and is highly thought of within development. His in-ring ability isn’t in question, however officials clearly want to send a message by removing him from television tapings.

While the above story is confirmed, there are also rumors that Triple H himself was the one who made the call for Ohno to be pulled from the TV tapings. The story goes that Triple H found out about Ohno’s lack of dedication to cutting weight and subsequently halted plans to elevate him to the main roster, and then removed him from the TV tapings.
