Matt Riddle def. Kassius Ohno
LOS ANGELES – A wise man once said, “Do not bark up the wrong tree; that tree will fall on you.” For Kassius Ohno, that notion came clear in a matter of seconds against Matt Riddle at NXT TakeOver: WarGames II. Following a tense back-and-forth during the WarGames II Pre-Show, The King of Bros stepped inside the STAPLES Center and issued an impromptu challenge to The Knockout Artist. As he accepted Riddle’s pop quiz and stepped into the ring, Ohno quickly ended up on the receiving end of his own clean-your-clock reputation. Almost instantaneously after the opening bell rang, Riddle rammed into The Knockout Artist with a rushing knee, thus finalizing a painful close. The total match time? Six seconds.
As The King of Bros soaked in the sweet taste of victory, a dazed Ohno came into realization that NXT General Manager William Regal’s “shiny new toy” packs a few tricks.
