Ohno and Coffey have faced off twice before, during Ohno’s three-year hiatus from NXT. Following the announcement of the ICW Title bout, Ohno tweeted that he has waited two years for a rematch against “The Iron Man”:
Finally. Two years in the making, it’s the Knockout Artist vs. the Iron Man, round #3.
Elbow? Or Lariat?
