WWE COO Triple H opened up last night’s NXT TV Tapings from Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida and announced that he was originally going to announce NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa vs. Johnny Gargano for TakeOver: New York but that was scrapped due to Ciampa’s neck injury.
Triple H would then announce that Johnny Gargano will be competing for The NXT Title at TakeOver: New York ver in a 2 Out Of 3 Falls Match. Gargano will be facing the winner of a Fatal 5-Way Match that took place at last night’s tapings with Ricochet, Aleister Black, Adam Cole, Matt Riddle & NXT North American Champion The Velveteen Dream. Adam Cole won that match and will now be facing Johnny Gargano for the vacant NXT Title at TakeOver: New York in a 2 Out Of 3 Falls Match.
