“Been asked a great deal about Kassius Ohno aka Chris Hero’s release from WWE NXT. Obviously, it is regrettable as no one wins in this particular scenario. I have been out of the WWE loop for a while but know that there were issues that were being addressed with this matter while I was still in the company. Ohno/Hero was well thought of and I felt he had a the potential for a bright future in WWE. Perhaps he still does down the road.
Any time a talent with the experience, skill set and potential that Kassius/Chris possesses fails, it is an unfortunate situation for all involved in the process. Having been there, hopefully all can learn from the experience and hope that history doesn’t repeat itself. These issues are rarely one sided as it takes two to tango.”
