At long last, one of the best independent wrestlers outside of WWE is coming back to NXT. Chris Hero is bringing KO back to NXT!
One of the big releases in recent years from NXT was when Chris Hero got released from his contract in 2013. Now, nearly 4 years later, Hero has finally made his return to the NXT brand again under the Kassius Ohno ring name.
