On tonight’s NXT Tapings in Full Sail, Kassius Ohno interrupted a tag match, livid at his loss to Matt Riddle at NXT Takeover: Phoenix. He came out to let the crowd know how much he despises the Full Sail environment and will be leaving immediately.
“The Knockout Artist” felt that he can go somewhere that will appreciate him for who he is. This prompted Keith Lee to attack Ohno, and escort him out of the building.

*Update: Ohno and Keith Lee would have a match later in the evening, in which Lee was victorious. Ohno would then go through the crowd exit after the match.

While this could be Ohno’s write-off, it’s just as likely to be a storyline playing off the real-life departures currently happening on the main roster with Hideo Itami and Dean Ambrose.
