– As we noted earlier on the site, No Way Jose was pulled from Takeover after he was attacked by SAnitY at WrestleMania 33 Axxess earlier in the day. Jose’s replacement for the eight-person match ended up being Kassius Ohno. He teamed with Ruby Riot, Tye Dillinger, and Roderick Strong but lost to Eric Young, Alexander Wolfe, Killian Dain and Nikki Cross in the opening match of NXT Takeover: Orlando.
