WWE NXT preview, Jan. 2, 2019: Riddle, Ohno throw down on special two-hour 2018 Year in Review

Relive NXT’s most momentous matches and shocking moments from the past 12 months, plus watch Matt Riddle and Kassius Ohno in a rematch from TakeOver: WarGames and hear all about the Year-End Awards, on a special two-hour 2018 Year in Review.

Matt Riddle and Kassius Ohno lock up in TakeOver rematch

The last time Matt Riddle and Kassius Ohno faced off in the ring -- for an impromptu match at the start of NXT TakeOver: WarGames — it was over in the blink of an eye thanks to a head-rocking leaping knee from The King of Bros.

Embarrassed and enraged over the loss, The Knockout Artist gave Riddle a brutal receipt on the Dec. 5 edition of NXT, blindsiding the former MMA star with a Rolling Elbow after Riddle’s defeat of Punishment Martinez.

Riddle and Ohno are now set to throw down in a rematch this Wednesday on NXT. Will the New Year mean a new start for the frustrated Knockout Artist, or will The King of Bros kick off 2019 on the right foot with another victory against one of sports-entertainment’s most sophisticated and dangerous strikers?

NXT Year-End Award nominees to be announced

At the end of each year, the NXT Universe rises to the call and casts their votes to decide the top movers, shakers and influencers in sports-entertainment’s hottest brand as part of NXT’s annual Year-End Awards. The 2018 Year-End Awards come into focus this Wednesday on WWE NXT as nominees will be revealed!

Relive NXT’s wild and crazy 2018
