Over the last several weeks Paul Heyman has hinted about scouting talent from NXT to be his next client. There is one man who is the logical choice for the spot. This man has wrestled worldwide, and is considered one of the best wrestlers that came out of the Indy Scene. He also wrestled former WWE Champion CM Punk many times before they even made it to WWE. His name is Kassius Ohno but before he came to NXT he was known as Chris Hero to many.
Ohno is the last of the original Ring of Honor guys that are still in NXT who have not been brought up to WWE’s main roster. Ohno has been in wrestling since 1998 and has been trained by greats like William Regal, Dave Taylor, Fit Finlay and Dory Funk Jr. He can be a brawler, a high flyer or get technical if he has to. I would say he is a well rounded worker who would do successful on Raw or Smackdown.
From a storyline point of view it would make sense and give him an instant feud with CM Punk once the Brock Lesnar angle runs its course. Heyman could use Ohno to get the best of Punk since they have worked in the ring for so many years. A lot of people credit the Chris Hero-CM Punk matches from IWA-Mid South for putting Hero and Punk on the map in pro wrestling.
