This was for Roode’s NXT Championship.
This was an overlong Bobby Roode match so it was obviously fairly uneventful and un-fun. The bigger story was that Kassius Ohno managed to be booked to lose cleanly in his first big televised match in NXT.
In retrospect, it was foolish to expect Ohno to be pushed strongly right out of the gate (remember when we speculated that he would be in the Royal Rumble?). However, WWE clearly does not have any big immediate plans for Ohno, and that is very disappointing. Oh well. (**1/4)
