Matt Riddle and Kassius Ohno lock up in TakeOver rematch
The last time Matt Riddle and Kassius Ohno faced off in the ring — for an impromptu match at the start of NXT TakeOver: WarGames — it was over in the blink of an eye thanks to a head-rocking leaping knee from The King of Bros.
Embarrassed and enraged over the loss, The Knockout Artist gave Riddle a brutal receipt on the Dec. 5 edition of NXT, blindsiding the former MMA star with a Rolling Elbow after Riddle’s defeat of Punishment Martinez.
Riddle and Ohno are now set to throw down in a rematch this Wednesday on NXT. Will the New Year mean a new start for the frustrated Knockout Artist, or will The King of Bros kick off 2019 on the right foot with another victory against one of sports-entertainment’s most sophisticated and dangerous strikers?
