The WWE NXT show begins with Johnny Gargano arriving in the ring. Gargano says that the last few weeks have been very interesting. Not only showing the WWE Universe what NXT is capable of, but also because last Wednesday was the toughest fight of his career against Velveteen Dream. After winning the North American title, Johnny Wrestling was back. He was at the top of the world. We climbed the mountain together and he showed everyone he was the champion, but he failed in the first test. Gargano says he has failed for all of us. He likes when we sing Johnny Champion even more. He still feels like a champion, but the reality is he’s not. He realized the only reason why he is successful.
Gargano is cut by the champion of NXT Tommaso Ciampa who arrives in the ring. Ciampa says that all of this is on them. Since the last week we have learned that Johnny Gargano is at his best with Ciampa. When they were together at RAW they won, same thing at SmackDown. When they arrive in the ring together, they are determined. Last week he had offered his help to Gargano, but he decided to go face the Dream alone and he lost. It does not have to be a bad thing, but it took a year and a half to realize that they need everyone.
Ciampa says it’s their destiny. He is here as el champion and Gargano has nothing. Last week we learned the return of the Dusty Rhodes Classic. Gargano should think about it. This is where everything started for them. This year the winners will have a chance for the TakeOver team titles. On the big stage they could show their talent. The place where they can have their moment. TakeOver New York can end in the same way as Phoenix. The two beside with the belts. Ciampa offers him his hand, Gargano reflected and finally decides to shake it!
Behind the scenes, Ricochet is asked for his comments on Undisputed Era. Ricochet says that while he was making noise with Aleister Black, they forgot what Endisputed Era did. It makes you always fight against the four. With Black on his side, he’s ready for the fight. Ricochet says he’s going to see William Regal to see if he and Black can face Kyle and Bobby for the first round of the Dusty Rhodes Classic.
Behind the scenes, Gargano and Ciampa are expected by Candice LeRae. Candice is not happy and asks her why do that. Gargano says he does it. Candice leaves.
