NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa was building towards a title bout against his former tag team partner Johnny Gargano at NXT TakeOver: New York. The rollercoaster of emotions that fans have felt as they’ve watched the paths of Johnny Wrestling and the Psycho Killer helped turn this feud into one of, if not the best, stories the brand has ever told.
Sadly, we won’t get to see the conclusion to their saga, as Ciampa underwent neck surgery last week. With the champ on the shelf, the Yellow Brand has no top title match planned for TakeOver. However, WWE revealed today that Triple H will address the situation on the next episode of NXT.
