Killian Dain & Alexander Wolfe def. Kassius Ohno & Hideo Itami

If Kassius Ohno and Hideo Itami’s friendship was on thin ice before, you better believe that ice has completely cracked following their loss to Killian Dain & Alexander Wolfe.

Ohno and Itami’s inexperience as a tag team – and issues communicating – would ultimately be their undoing in this bout. At times, Ohno could be heard imploring his tag team partner to tag him into the contest, only to see his pleas going ignored by Itami.

On the other side of the squared circle, SAniTy’s crazed team of Dain & Wolfe worked in complete unity. The unhinged Wolfe appeared to gladly take a GTS from Itami in order to open the door for The Beast of Belfast, who then demolished Itami with a devastating running crossbody.

With Ohno and Itami clearly not on the same page, will this loss add fuel to the fire that is their tumultuous friendship?




WWE.com: Ohno And Itami Join Forces Against SAnitY

SAnitY “maestro” Eric Young is devising a master plan, and if Killian Dain & Alexander Wolfe have their way, Kassius Ohno & Hideo Itami will be the first Superstars to feel the ramifications.

With the help of a distraction from Nikki Cross, Dain & Wolfe blindsided Ohno & Itami in the center of the ring on the June 28 edition of NXT, just as it seemed like the troubled friends were on the verge of patching up their hard feelings. Though NXT’s Knockout Artist and the master of the GTS have had a rocky few weeks, with recent in-ring setbacks straining their friendship, they now align under the common cause: Scoring retribution against NXT’s chaotic contingent.

Wolfe offered some semblance of an explanation for SAnitY’s unprovoked attack, stating that Young wants his crew to expose “forced friendships” such as Ohno & Itami’s as nothing more than “lies.”

Can SAnitY succeed in their nefarious quest, or will Ohno & Itami leave Dain & Wolfe seeing stars? Don’t miss this huge tag team collision, streaming tonight on WWE Network.

Hideo Itami def. Oney Lorcan

Bent on evening the score with Hideo Itami after Itami blasted him with multiple GTSes the last time they wrestled, Oney Lorcan charged out the gate, firing off a European uppercut. The opening salvo caught Itami’s face in all the wrong ways, and blood began pouring out of his nose. The referee paused the bout and, after consulting with ringside medical personnel, called off the match — much to the disappointment of Itami, Lorcan and the entire NXT Universe.

The fight, however, was far from over.

Minutes later, Itami reemerged from the locker room. His nose flattened, twice as wide as before and stuffed with cotton, he waved on Lorcan to return to the ring.

Lorcan obliged, and the blistering action picked up where it left off. Itami struck first this time, landing a running big boot as soon as the bell rang. He battered Lorcan with knees and kicks, but the Boston brawler chopped and uppercut his way back. Itami’s savvy eventually won out, as he suckered Lorcan in and attacked his knee, causing Lorcan to crumple to the mat shortly after. Lorcan refused to quit, even when the referee gave him the chance, but he still couldn’t muster a defense against Itami’s GTS. Unlike their previous battle, Itami stopped there, pinning Lorcan instead of continuing the onslaught.

Itami then invited Kassius Ohno to the ring, but before they could address their tumultuous friendship, Nikki Cross climbed onto the ropes and distracted them long enough for Killian Dain and Alexander Wolfe to pounce. After they laid waste to Itami and Ohno, Wolfe ended things on a most ominous note, revealing that SAnitY’s “maestro,” Eric Young, is hard at work crafting a master plan for the chaotic crew.

The match between Hideo Itami and Oney Lorcan was ruled a no-contest

Unable to hide his frustration over losing to NXT Champion Bobby Roode at TakeOver: Chicago, Hideo Itami revealed a decidedly dark side in his match with Oney Lorcan. The brutal exchanges between the two hard-hitters, which included Itami slapping Lorcan across the face and Lorcan uppercutting Itami out of the ring, were expected.

What wasn’t anticipated, however, was the way the usually noble Itami gained the upper hand (by playing possum), or the way he excessively beat on Lorcan once he had him down. Itami lit up Lorcan three times with the Go-To-Sleep, but never attempted to pin him. He threatened a fourth GTS, but Kassius Ohno ran into the ring and stopped him, telling Itami, “This isn’t you.”

A shoving match ensued, with Ohno reluctantly pushing Itami to the mat. Staring down Ohno the whole time, Itami exited the ring slowly, leaving NXT fans to wonder if Itami and Ohno’s alliance has reached a breaking point.

NXT Champion Bobby Roode def. Hideo Itami

If you weren’t convinced already, WWE NXT Champion Bobby Roode had to have won you over at NXT TakeOver: Chicago. His victory against Hideo Itami was, in a word, glorious.

Itami, whose WWE NXT career has been halted by numerous unfortunate setbacks, had so much to prove in this bout. That’s why it didn’t come as a shock when Itami went for the Go to Sleep not long after the opening bell.

Roode avoided that strike, but the champion’s body will wear the black and blue marks of the nearly uncountable amount of strikes Itami landed during the match. Ever the cagey veteran, Roode continually found ways to put the challenger on the mat. Yet, somehow still, Itami always kicked his way right back into title contention.

The title seemed to be within Itami’s reach after Roode went shoulder-first between the turnbuckles and into the ring post. Roode stayed in the fight, but looked to be in agony when Itami sent that same shoulder into the steel ring steps. Itami looked to finish him right there with a hesitation dropkick, but missed and badly damaged his left leg.

That injury stopped Itami from connecting with a GTS. When he finally landed the maneuver moments later, Roode fell to the outside of the ring. By the time Itami got him back into the squared circle, the champion had regained enough composure to kick out. Itami kept the pressure on, brutalizing Roode with palm strikes, but when he went for another GTS, The Glorious One countered and hit not one, but two consecutive Glorious DDTs.

Not only did Roode spoil Itami’s promise of taking his title, but he cemented the fact that NXT belongs to him. Act accordingly.
