Former NXT star Kassius Ohno offers an update on the future of the ring

Published

on

Former NXT star Kassius Ohno has provided an update on his future in the ring after being released from his contract earlier this year.

The wrestling veteran has been mostly silent since his departure from the company in April, but recently made a post on his WrestlingGenius subreddit.

In the post, he confirmed that he is far from done with professional wrestling and stated that he will return to the ring when the circumstances are right:

“Before anyone asks or infers, I’m far from finished wrestling. If I wanted to hang up and train / produce, I could have a job tomorrow. I have turned down several companies in the last 6 months, not because they have been terrible offers or anything like that, but because I am not ready. I will return when the circumstances and situations are right. Trust me, it * kills * me not to be out there doing what I love. The time will come and when it does it will be spectacular. In the meantime, I appreciate all your patience. Take care and stay safe! “

Kassius Ohno has had a couple of runs with WWE. His last tenure with the company began in 2016 when he joined NXT. He spent most of his period working with younger talents helping them establish themselves on the roster and Ohno was considered the “guardian of NXT” for this reason.

However, the former ROH star’s career came to an abrupt end when he was released from his contract in April as part of the coronavirus budget cuts and subsequently confirmed his return to independent scenes with his Chris Hero persona.

Published

on

WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg returned to WWE in 2016 after a more than a decade hiatus from the company. He would then defeat Brock Lesnar in a squash match at Survivor 2016 and then win the Universal Championship against Kevin Owens in 2017. He defended his title against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 33 in one of the show’s main events. As stated in his contract, Vince McMahon can only get him to compete in one more match this year, so it has to mean something. Goldberg also admitted teasing Ric Flair for being too old to be in the ring in the past. Goldberg also sent a bold message to a WWE Superstar a couple of months ago.

Goldberg finally returned to WWE television when he appeared on this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW after Bobby Lashley successfully defended his WWE Championship against a returning Keith Lee. Subsequently, Goldberg appeared and challenged Bobby Lashley for a WWE Championship match declaring that he is next.

WWE is also announcing Goldberg for two more appearances on Monday Night RAW. He is scheduled to appear on the August 2 and 16 episode of the show. Raw on August 16 could be Goldberg’s last under his 3-year contract with WWE, signed in the spring of 2019 for 2 matches per year.
