Aleister Black’s NXT Title reign began at TakeOver: New Orleans when he vanquished El Idolo, Andrade “Cien” Almas, for the belt. Since then, Black has defended his championship against Lars Sullivan and was scheduled to defend it against Tomasso Ciampa.
At tonight’s tapings, Ciampa would dethrone Black after only holding the title for three months. Ciampa’s title win comes off the huge momentum he earned after defeating Johnny Gargano at TakeOver: Chicago II.
WWE revealed the news earlier tonight on their website.
Tommaso Ciampa defeated Aleister Black to win the NXT Championship at tonight’s NXT taping at Full Sail Live in Orlando, Fla.
With the win, Ciampa becomes the 14th Superstar in history to win the NXT Title.
See how The Blackheart prevailed against The Dutch Destroyer when their championship showdown streams on the award-winning WWE Network next Wednesday at 8/7 C.
Some people received WWE alerts revealing the title change, possibly spoiling it for many of their fans.
With the title already off Black, could we see him make his way to the main roster soon? Will he get a chance at redemption at TakeOver: Brooklyn III?
