Kassius Ohno def. Kona Reeves
ORLANDO, Fla. — Kassius Ohno refuses to take a back seat any longer.
The Knockout Artist, who has been decrying the lack of big opportunities to come his way in recent months, defeated one of his toughest challenges of late, “The Finest” Kona Reeves, in a supremely hard-hitting duel. Though Reeves talked plenty of trash throughout the match, even taunting Ohno with claims that “no one cares about you,” Ohno was dangerously focused. The Finest found that out after Ohno escaped Reeves’ Hawaiian Drop and hammered him with the Rolling Elbow to pick up the three-count.
Afterward, Ohno cleared the air about his mounting frustration, particularly as it relates to NXT newcomers he feels have jumped him in the pecking order of the black-and-yellow brand. The Knockout Artist declared that he is ready to welcome — and “knock to the back of the line” — the next buzzworthy free-agent signing who looks to make his mark in NXT.
