Top NXT Star Removed from Recent Show, Concern Over His Lack of Dedication; HHH Rumored to be Involved

— 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.

    In fairness Matt really turned his life around and became arguably the best thing in ROH yet he doesn’t need the ROH payday and genuinelly seems to want to give back to the buisness in some way.

    Even a guy like Matt Hardy has shown that once he got his shit together, he cut most of the weight he put on during is substance abuse stage.
    If you want the company to invest in you and put some effort into giving you a push, you have to put some effort in.

    Exactly. Guys get there and think “I’ve paid my dues” but in reality you should never be done trying to be in shape. Look at HHH himself he shows up at every event looking as good if not better than he did ten years ago and he’s only a part time guy. Bryan realised he was in line for a big push and gained some pounds to the point these days he’s like a pitbull!
    If the COO of the company and an even bigger former indy star can make it and still feel they need to work hard what right does Ohno have to take his foot off the gas?

    Its like Chris Harris/Braden Walker, who felt that once he made it to WWE, he could let himself go. When he left TNA he was toned and muscular, when he showed up on WWE tv, he was giving the Big Show a run for his money one who could eat the most of the buffet in one sitting.

    This is gonna be unpopular decision but I don’t blame HHH for this. Hero had gotten into great shape then he got to WWE and let himself turn to shit again. If he was essentially told cut some weight and you’ll get to the main roster then I think it’s totally fair he gets pulled in favour of someone who’s putting in the time not just in the ring but in the gym as well.
