On Saturday, we confirmed that WWE had come to terms on the release of Kassius Ohno, otherwise known as Chris Hero during his extended run on the independent scene.
Ohno joins the likes of Kurt Angle, Rusev, Luke Gallows, Karl Anderson, and numerous others who were let go by the promotion.
Late on Sunday night, Ohno took to Facebook where he posted a very cryptic photo.
While the tradition of leaving ones boots in the ring is often a sign of retirement, many fans picked up on one particular detail that left them with hope that the longtime grappler’s career might be continuing.
On the boots, they clearly say “Kassius” — the ring name he used exclusively during his NXT tenure. This left many to believe that this was simply his way of closing the book on his career with the promotion.
A long time staple of the independent scene, it’s likely that plenty of promotion would welcome the talented Chris Hero to the roster if he chooses to prolong his career.
