Kassius Ohno vs. Lars Sullivan
In a match that WWE Hall of Famer announcer Jim Ross might term a “slobberknocker,” NXT’s resident Knockout Artist, Kassius Ohno, will battle the behemoth known as Lars Sullivan at NXT TakeOver: WarGames.
Surprisingly, this match came about at the request of Ohno, who sought out General Manager William Regal on the Nov. 8 episode of NXT in hopes moving into NXT Title contention. Currently riding an impressive winning streak, The Knockout Artist wants to show Regal that he is worthy of such an opportunity by toppling the 300-plus pound Sullivan.
Since arriving in NXT and showing that he can’t play nice with others by routinely destroying his own tag team partners, Sullivan has put together his own winning streak, proving to be unstoppable in singles competition. The hulking Superstar has powered his way past the likes of No Way Jose, Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch, competitors who are all known for their ability to unleash a hard-hitting attack.
If there is one Superstar in NXT who could overcome Sullivan’s size and strength, however, it’s Ohno. The highly-acclaimed striker’s Rolling Elbow is a finishing move that — if it lands on the jaw of Sullivan — could be enough to keep the brute down for the three-count.
Will Ohno KO the seemingly impervious Sullivan? Or will the ravenous Sullivan beat down The Knockout Artist’s hopes of fighting his way into NXT Title contention? No matter the outcome, the NXT Universe is in store for a slugfest of epic proportions.
Watch Kassius Ohno collide with Lars Sullivan tonight at TakeOver: WarGames, live on the award-winning WWE Network.
