The first WWE NXT tapings of 2017 took place tonight in Orlando at Full Sail University. While we don’t like posting spoiler results, there was some news as Kassius Ohno returned to NXT. Shortly after his return, the WWENXT Instagram account posted a photo of Ohno with NXT Champion Shinsuke Nakamura in the ring. That’s the image up above. Here’s a tweet from NXT boss Triple H shaking his hand.

Ohno, better known as Chris Hero on the indies over the last 15 years, was reported as coming back to WWE last month. Since then, Ohno didn’t confirm his return to WWE because that’s the way WWE operates when they sign somebody. They don’t want people to admit it. They’d rather have them return whenever it’s their time.
Ohno started with WWE in developmental in February 2012. He was released by the company in November 2013. It’s good to see him back.
Look at who they let in the back door…
