Back in 2011, the WWE went out and signed Chris Spradlin better known on the Indies as Chris Hero. Once he signed he was repackaged as Kassius Ohno which lead to the connection of "KO" due to the stiffness of his in ring ability especially his elbows. At first Ohno gained a small push when NXT first got going but then things slowly started fading. Problems began rearing their heads with differences in ideology and this lead to Ohno being taken off TV for a time and would loss when he did get back on TV. In the fall of 2013 Chris would get released by the company and would return to the Indies.
The reason that this is a part of Triple H's regime is because Chris and Claudio were the first major signings under Hunter. But the reason I chose to list this as just bad and not ugly is because Ohno has returned to the company at this point and is getting another chance in NXT to prove what he can do and show just how good he is.
