Kassius Ohno recently cut a promo on his NXT Takeover: Phoenix opponent, Matt Riddle. Riddle and Ohno are headed for what can only be considered a grudge match on January 26 and Kassius appears more than ready for the challenge.
The two men have had heat for quite some time and just when it appears they will move on to something else, Riddle and Ohno keep crossing paths.
Their storyline recently involved Keith Lee, who stood up for Matt but was taken down by Ohno for his efforts. Now The King of Bros will step up on the Takeover stage and this match could be a highlight of the event. Many fans believe that Riddle is headed for big things on WWE’s main roster, but that all begins with NXT.
The next round of NXT call-ups is finally debuting on Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live, but Riddle was not among this batch of Superstars. It could be that WWE is waiting until later to bring Matt up to the main roster and in the meantime, he may very well rise to the top of NXT.
