WWE taped tonight’s edition of NXT on Wednesday, May 25th, 2017, from Winter Park, FL at the Full Sail University. Here are the spoilers for tonight’s show.
— Tommaso Ciampa walked down to the ring on crutches. He said that he is out here because he owes an explanation to Johnny Gargano. He invites Gargano to come to the ring but Gargano doesn’t come out, and Ciampa said that he is not here tonight. He noted that he suffered an injury on the Thursday before NXT Takeover: Chicago, but it didn’t matter because he was still going to fight. He said that people were thinking of dream partners for Gargano and that 24 hours after Takeover, fans forgot about him. He said that when he realized they lost he knew that he was injured and going away for a long time, he looked across at Gargano and it became clear. He said that if he went away, then Gargano would replace him. He didn’t want to become an afterthought and in that he made his choice. He said that it is the fan’s’ fault and it is Gargano’s fault that DIY is done. He said that if he had to go away, then Gargano had to go away with him. He said that Takeover: Chicago was supposed to be DIY’s moment, but it ended up being his moment. He said that he is irreplaceable, Gargano is irreplaceable, the fans are replaceable. He vowed that once he returns, then he will be the most dangerous man in professional wrestling and everyone is on notice.
