Kassius Ohno def. Hideo Itami

Kassius Ohno took full advantage of the No Disqualification stipulation that he requested when he KO’ed Hideo Itami following a brutal low blow.

The hit below the waist was fitting retribution after Itami used the same tactic in their previous encounter before unleashing a vicious post-match assault on Ohno.

The two foes fought inside and outside the ring in a heated contest before Ohno appeared ready to hit his Rolling Elbow. Itami, though, tried again to nail his opponent in the nether regions, but this time, Ohno blocked it. The wily Itami instead poked Ohno’s eyes before setting him up for the GTS.

A determined Ohno escaped the move, however, and hit a forceful low blow on Itami before ending the contest with his Rolling Elbow.




WWE.com: Disqualifications Are Thrown Out The Window In Ohno vs. Itami

Rules can no longer contain the hostile rivalry between Kassius Ohno and Hideo Itami.

That much was clear after their hard-hitting clash on July 26, when Itami was disqualified for a blatantly illegal low blow. Indignant over the referee’s decision, Itami continued to batter Ohno after the bell, wrecking him with Go To Sleeps and smashing him into the steel ring steps.

With retribution on his mind, Ohno requested and was granted a No Disqualification Match by NXT General Manager William Regal last week, setting the scene for tonight’s destructive confrontation.

A duel between Itami and Ohno — newly embittered foes who also happen to be two of the world’s elite strikers — is a recipe for carnage under the gentlest of scenarios. The removal of disqualifications gives them free rein to brutalize each other however they want. Don’t miss this lawless battle tonight on NXT, streaming exclusively on the award-winning WWE Network.

Aleister Black def. Hideo Itami

Hideo Itami is the latest NXT Superstar to Fade to Black after falling to the devastating Aleister Black’s Black Mass kick to the face.

This highly-anticipated showdown involving two of the hardest kickers in the world of wrestling didn’t disappoint as both Superstars wowed the NXT Universe with a barrage of strikes that reverberated throughout Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

This clash was not for the faint of heart as Black’s face would attest. Itami had Black grounded and busted open early on as he appeared ready to hand Black his first NXT loss.

This brutal bout would test both Superstars’ resiliency as they unloaded one devastating maneuver after another. Itami had Black on his heels, but his boisterous demands for respect and taunts would ultimately prove costly. As Itami charged, Black ducked out of the way before delivering a jaw-rattling Black Mass for the win.

This epic clash could end up proving to be a pivotal turning point for both Black and Itami who seem headed in opposite directions. For the extremely talented and highly-acclaimed Itami, will the Japanese Superstar be able to rebound from his latest high-profile loss?

Meanwhile, for Black, he picks up another decisive victory to continue his imposing undefeated streak as the number of Superstars left in NXT for Black to defeat is dwindling.






NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn III Preview – Aleister Black vs. Hideo Itami

Knockout blows will not be in short supply when Aleister Black, still undefeated inside the yellow ropes, takes on the increasingly volatile Hideo Itami in a newly announced match for TakeOver: Brooklyn III.

The two scary-intense warriors crossed paths last night on NXT when Black, who was entering the ring for a match, interrupted Itami’s mid-ring diatribe. Itami took exception, but Black cleared him from the ring with Black Mass. Later in the evening, after NXT went off the air, Black and Itami got into it again as Itami tried to ambush Black in the parking lot.

It hasn’t taken much to provoke Itami’s temper recently. For weeks, the Japanese Superstar has decried his station and treatment in NXT. His demeanor has turned bitter and his actions unpredictable, such as his post-match attack against onetime ally Kassius Ohno.

If it’s respect that he wants, Itami need not look any further than his showdown against Black in Brooklyn. Itami is in search of a big win that will catapult him back into the main-event picture, and a victory against the tatted terror — who has decimated everybody he has faced so far — might just accomplish that. Black does not seem particularly interested in starting beefs, but he might be all too happy to settle them. The pencak silat master has vanquished mighty competition since making his NXT debut. Black, however, has yet to face a Superstar with the credentials of Itami, making TakeOver’s battle of elite strikers even more compelling.

Can Black make the jaw-jacking Itami “Fade to Black,” or will Itami turn out Black’s lights with his unstoppable Go-To-Sleep? The NXT Universe will find out Saturday, Aug. 19, when TakeOver: Brooklyn III streams live at 8 ET/5 PT, exclusively on the award-winning WWE Network.

Aleister Black grows more battle-tested by the week. In the latest example, the Dutch destroyer narrowly overcame NXT newcomer Kyle O’Reilly, a world-famous combatant whose unannounced arrival sent Full Sail University into a frenzy.

But before their epic encounter got underway, Black had another Superstar to deal with: Hideo Itami. Itami had commandeered the ring to decry what he believed to be a lack of respect toward him. As Black entered the ring for his scheduled match, Itami initially conceded the squared circle but then tried to jump Black from behind, only to be laid out with Black Mass.

Kassius Ohno def. Hideo Itami by Disqualification

It looks as though Hideo Itami finally put the finishing touches on his floundering friendship with Kassius Ohno as he decimated NXT’s resident Knockout Artist with a vicious post-match assault mere moments after embarrassing him with a low blow.

Itami and Ohno’s alliance was clearly on shaky ground from the start, but the Japanese Superstar’s actions Wednesday night on NXT have blown up the foundation that was their friendship.

Both heralded strikers let out their frustrations with one another in the form of a barrage of hard-hitting kicks that had the NXT Universe split down the middle on who they wanted to prevail.

Just as Ohno set up Itami for his Rolling Elbow finisher, Itami responded with a kick below the belt that floored his opponent.

Itami proceeded to add insult to injury, continuing to levy a relentless attack against his former friend. After hitting not one, but two GTS’ on Ohno, Itami began to walk up the ramp.

Deciding he wasn’t finished with the jersey-clad Ohno, Itami then went back to the ring to drop Ohno face-first on the unforgiving steel steps, finally ending the unforgiving assault.




WWE.com: Ohno and Itami To Settle Their Differences Inside The Ring

Fed up with Hideo Itami’s finger-pointing and complaints, Kassius Ohno is ready to show that he is a man of action. In a match that he requested, and a showdown that many NXT fans believe has been weeks in the making, NXT’s Knockout Artist will face Itami tonight, exclusively on WWE Network.

Since coming up short against NXT Champion Bobby Roode at TakeOver: Chicago, Itami has grown increasingly frustrated with his position in NXT. The legendary striker denied rumors that he plans to return to Japan, but has been openly critical about his treatment, claiming that he has not been given due respect by NXT fans or matchmakers.

At first, Ohno defended the uncharacteristic behavior of Itami, a long-respected ally whom Ohno first crossed paths with in Japan, and attempted to show Itami the “right way” of overcoming his setback. Yet, after Itami blamed Ohno for their tag team loss to SAnitY on the July 5 episode of NXT, the master of the Rolling Elbow had clearly had enough of Itami’s new attitude.

Tonight, the two universally feared competitors will square off inside the yellow ropes. Which striker will come out on top, and regardless of the outcome, where will Ohno and Itami’s friendship stand after the duel? Don’t miss this hotly anticipated match tonight when NXT streams on the award-winning WWE Network at 8/7 C.
