Rob Terry has benefited from the working relationship between TNA and Wrestle-1. He recently finished up a tour o Japan, where he worked a couple of matches for the new promotion. He also helped the Great Muta and Kaz Hayashi judge new talents trying out for the company.
With a million dollar body, many within the wrestling industry believe that Rob Terry can eventually become a star, but he needs more experience first. Terry is wisely taking that advice by working plenty of matches for OVW, the indies and even Japan.
While there are still people under the belief that this entire thing is a story line, AJ Styles has now been booked for various independent wrestling shows, including a big match against former WWE signee Kassius Ohno in January, from now until March.
Since TNA showed very little interest in picking him up, Kassisus Ohno has decided to return to ROH this weekend, utilizing the Chris Hero name that he used before jumping ship to the WWE developmental program.
TNA has shown very little to no interest in signing Kassius Ohno, the former ROH star who was recently released by WWE. That does not come as a surprise, though, as the TNA front office is currently slowing things down for the holidays.
While the company has publicly left the door open for a potential return, the belief is that Kassius Ohno has no intentions of ever coming back to WWE, as he feels that management will not give him a fair chance to succeed.
At a Dragon Gate USA show, Kassius Ohno, who was recently released by WWE, took a jab at Triple H by having his opponent doing the crotch chop and Pedigree finisher, which Ohno was able to kick out of at the one count.
"I don't think they give a s--t about (indies) buzz. They only care about their own buzz, which makes sense. You can't solely cater to the niche fan base — it's a tricky demographic to deal with. But you can see somebody get over with those fans and think maybe they can do it in WWE, too. And they see someone who has the passion to chase the dream, traveling around the world. If you have passion, if you're a good performer, those are two of the most important things in wrestling, and they're things you can't manufacture. Some people are naturals. Take Big E Langston; he has such a perfect match of athleticism and charisma, and he looks like an action figure."
One of the people who backed up Kassius Ohno with management was Dusty Rhodes, who was really pushing for the company to keep the former ROH star around.
While there were speculations that Kassius Ohno could be returning to Ring of Honor, the former WWE developmental wrestler is going to work on the independent wrestling circuit while he decides where he wants to take his career next.
Fans at the NXT television taping this week were very vocal towards special guest Triple H, as many beleive that he is the reason why Kassius Ohno is no longer with WWE.
The release of Kassius Ohno was not an abrupt move by WWE, as the company had been planning his departure for quite some time now.
Kassius Ohno has been booked for a dream match against Lance Storm at an independent wrestling show in Ontario on December 15.
