I hate to be the bearer of bad news but Kassius Ohno, perhaps better known as Chris Hero from his days on the independent scene, has been released by WWE, according to reports from both PW Insider and the Wrestling Observer.
This news sucks. I, like many of you, were hoping he would be a new member of The Shield one day. Unfortunately, it is not to be. At least he'll be back on the indie scene sooner rather than later. In fact, he already has multiple dates announced, including a booking with Pro Wrestling Guerilla in December and a match with Hurricane Helms for PWS in New Jersey on Nov. 16.
Ohno will be back working under his old Hero name.
You Cagesiders as disappointed as I am that he's back out on the independent scene?
