NXT Championship vacated, new match set to crown a new champion at TakeOver: New York

The NXT Championship was vacated at the tapings on Wednesday night.

As previously noted, Tommaso Ciampa is out of action after undergoing neck surgery last week so they needed a new champion for the big title match at TakeOver: New York during WrestleMania weekend.

It was decided that the winner of a 5-way match would go on to face Johnny Gargano at TakeOver and the winner of the match at TakeOver would be the new champion.

It was Adam Cole vs. Ricochet vs. Aleister Black vs. Velveteen Dream vs. Matt Riddle. Cole won the match so it will be Cole vs. Gargano at TakeOver: New York and it will be a 2-out-of-3 falls match.

We’ll have more spoiler notes up on the site shortly.
