A big bout is set for NXT next week.
On Wednesday's episode of NXT, it was announced that Matt Riddle will take on Kassius Ohno next week. The rivalry between the two started even before Riddle arrived in NXT. Feeling like an afterthought, Ohno lashed out following a victory over Kona Reeves on the Sept. 5 edition of NXT. Riddle didn't make his NXT debut until the Oct. 31 episode, but the seeds were already sown. Following his victory over Luke Menzies, Riddle was greeted backstage by the disgruntled Ohno. You can view that segment in the video player above.
This past week on NXT, Ohno aired his grievances face-to-face with Riddle, setting up the bout for next week.
Riddle and Ohno were set to go one-on-one on Nov. 15 at the WrestleMania On-Sale Party at MetLife Stadium, but the event was canceled due to bad weather.
