Will the third time be the charm for Kassius Ohno?
NXT announced that Kassius Ohno will once against square off with Matt Riddle at NXT TakeOver: Phoenix. Riddle first defeated Ohno at TakeOver: WarGames II in six seconds in an impromptu bout. The two rematched on the Jan. 2 episode of NXT with Riddle once again picking up the victory. Following the bout, a frustrated Ohno viciously assaulted the King of Bros. This past Wednesday, Ohno faced Riddle's friend Keith Lee. Ohno finally gained some momentum, picking up a victory over Lee with the Rolling Elbow.
After the bout, Riddle tried to attack Ohno, but was held back by officials as he is not medically cleared.
