Tommaso Ciampa turns on Johnny Gargano at the end of NXT Takeover: Chicago



The Authors Of Pain retained the NXT Tag Team Championship at NXT Takeover: Chicago in the main event.

Paul Ellering got in the ring at one point and pushed the ladder just as Gargano was about to secure the titles. Gargano hit Ellering with a superkick but the distraction gave The AOP enough time to take over the match. Gargano took a bullet (ladder to the face) for his partner after pushing Ciampa out of the way. Ciampa later hit a suplex off a ladder and through a ladder in a corner on one of the AOP. #DIY hit the trademark double kicks on one of the AOP onto a ladder and Ciampa started favoring his leg.

AOP retained after #DIY went for the titles but were left hanging as the ladders were taken away by AOP. AOP hit the super collider and two powerbombs. Then they climbed up and grabbed the titles. AOP walked to the back and #DIY stood in the ring as fans cheered. They stood up on the stage and it looked like the show was over but Ciampa turned heel and rammed Gargano into the big screen and nailed him with a knee to the face. Ciampa then set up Gargano on top of the announcers table and hit a death valley driver through some equipment.
