Kassius Ohno def. Fabian Aichner
Making his NXT debut as a heavyweight, former WWE Cruiserweight Classic competitor Fabian Aichner hoped to steal the show in his outing against the red-hot Kassius Ohno. Looking even more muscular than the NXT Universe might remember from his appearance in last year’s global tournament, the Italian Superstar powered Ohno into a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker, then demonstrated unbelievable agility and daring by leaping (hands free!) to the top rope and splashing Ohno on the floor.
Though his high-risk moves left NXT fans breathless, they also proved to be Aichner’s undoing. An attempted double-springboard moonsault missed the target, allowing Ohno to regain his composure and stun Aichner with wicked strikes before putting him away with a cyclone kick for the win.
