Gargano’s recent transformation in character began at NXT TakeOver: Portland when he dissolved his reunion with Tommaso Ciampa by costing him the NXT Title against Adam Cole.
As for Lee, the reigning North American Champion has been on a hot streak since beating Roderick Strong for the title. Come, TakeOver: In Your House, ‘The Limitless’ will look forward to another successful defense over Gargano.
The former ‘Heart & Soul of NXT’, however, will aim to become a two-time North American Champion.
