NXT TakeOver: War Games kicks-off with The King of Bro’s, Matt Riddle, making his way to the ring!
Riddle gets in the ring an echoes the chants of the fans as he says, “Brooooo”. He says he wasn’t supposed to have a match tonight but if you watched the pre-show, you would have seen him be interrupted by Kassius Ohno. Riddle says they were supposed to fight next week but, seeing as they’re in Los Angeles and have two rings, he’ll knock Ohno out in both of them.
Ohno makes his way out and says Riddle is too dumb to realise that they aren’t scheduled to have a match. But he tells the referee to ring the bell anyway, and warns Riddle to bask in the spotlight while he can, because he’s about to be knocked out.

Kassius Ohno Vs. Matt Riddle
The bell rings and Ohno runs at Riddle while he’s taking off his jacket in the corner. Riddle turns however and catches Ohno with a leaping knee to the jaw and that’s all she wrote!
Winner: Matt Riddle
The fans chant “Bro!” as Riddle celebrates, and Ohno tries to get to his feet but can’t. Mauro Ranallo says that match lasted as long as a Hollywood marriage. Ohno still can’t walk straight as Riddle leaves up the ramp.
