For those of you that missed this week’s NXT TV, there was an excellent segment at the end of the show between Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano to set up their match at NXT Takeover: Chicago. Gargano was initially going to announce his retirement but, against the wishes of his wife Candice LeRae, he ripped off his neck brace and said that he was not done with Ciampa.
Ciampa knocked Gargano into his wife at ringside as the show ended. Some fans are speculating that Gargano and Ciampa will be splitting up in the storylines. Others have speculated that LeRae could turn on Gargano and side with Ciampa at Takeover. We’ll see if any of that actually happens but, as you can see in the clip below, Gargano has picked up the paperwork for the upcoming Street Fight with Ciampa and LeRae was not happy.
The original stipulation was not supposed to be a Street Fight. However, a main roster booking for Money In The Bank caused a change to the stipulation for this match. Click here for more details and don’t forget to check out the video below.
Here is the updated card for Takeover: Chicago…
Aleister Black (Champion) vs. Lars Sulivan
Johnny Gargano vs. Tommaso Ciampa
NXT Tag Team Championship
The Undisputed Era (Kyle O’Reilly & Roderick Strong) vs. Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch
Ricochet and Velveteen Dream
At least one more match will be announced and it will likely be Shayna Baszler defending the NXT Women’s Championship against Nikki Cross
