One of these men left NXT for good. Who was it?

With NXT Takeover: Orlando on the horizon, there doesn’t seem to be the same sense of excitement that one associates with NXT’s grand showcase on WrestleMania weekend. The card is exciting enough on the surface, and we’re sure that the superstars will give it their all in the ring and beyond. Sadly, because of the nature of NXT, which is just a pitstop on the way to the main roster, one gets attached to a superstar only to see them go.

This week, NXT brought us a power-packed episode of their final televised episode before NXT Takeover: Orlando. Let’s look at 5 points to note from this episode of NXT. 

#5 The day the music died

Kassius Ohno breaks guitars better than Jeff Jarrett does

We all know that Kassius Ohno AKA Chris Hero is one of the best wrestlers in the world. This week, in the main event, Elias Samson also brought his A-Game to his final appearance in NXT. Some of his transitions were seamless, and we realised that underneath the veneer of the unlikeable character he plays, Samson is a pretty solid worker. Just like we know that underneath his flab, Kassius Ohno is a future NXT Champion.

Perhaps the most entertaining part of the evening was after the match when The Drifter was being led away by security and asked to be let go, simply so that he could fetch his guitar from the ring. Before he could get to the ring, Ohno stomped on the guitar and broke it for good. Now, Samson has no job with NXT and no guitar either.
