Fuck that was an amazing swerve at the end and now we can't even get the conclusion to the rivalry because of Ciampas injury. I'm assuming Johnny would have finally won but idk how that would have effected his main roster call up

What's going to happen to the NXT Championship?
As first revealed by Cathy Kelley last week, WWE COO Triple H will come to NXT this week to address the matter on the minds of all Superstars and fans: What’s the status of the NXT Title following the neck injury suffered by champion Tommaso Ciampa?

The Game’s return to Full Sail Live couldn’t be better timed, with only three weeks to go until WrestleMania Week and TakeOver: New York. Don’t miss Triple H’s all-important announcement when NXT streams this Wednesday at 8/7 C on the award-winning WWE Network.

That Fatal-5 way was fucking great. Cole was who I wanted to win, and I'm assuming he'll beat Gargano as well just bc I still can't see Gargano winning the big one but maybe it's finally his time. Riddle stays steady impressing me as well. Also it was kinda weird how they had pre-recorded interviews about the main event when Trips announced it in the ring at the beginning of the show :side:

I don't get what the big deal with Adam Cole is tbh.

Personally I would've went all in with Velveteen Dream and have him double champion since he is the biggest crossover star they have imo.

I've always liked Cole since ROH but I'll admit I never saw him as a big WWE player and still don't know if he'll do much on the main roster but I've been loving him on NXT so far

I hope Gargano wins but it looks like he won't since he's main roster bound. My guess is they wanted him to beat Ciampa in New York then probably have him drop the title to Cole at the following Takeover. Since Ciampa is injured maybe they're hotshotting it. OR, maybe Gargano will beat Cole this time then drop it to him at the next Takeover.

Well before I talk about that Fatal 5 Way I must commend WWE for what they showed up earlier in the Show. Between them showing Ciampa's Surgery showing the sacrifice of what it takes being a Wrestler, to Bianca showing more of her bratty attitude towards Io and Kairi their was some good stuff all around in this Show. Just like Tony Nese it was the smart decision to make Cole the guy to face Gargano at NXT Takeover NY. Riddle vs Dream is a lock I feel, you saw them barely touch at times, Black and Ricochet will most likely be facing for the Tag Titles vs The War Raiders if they win the Dusty Classic, so Cole is the only guy who is going to be free for that spot. He didn't blow away anyone in this Match I felt, just enough, but enough to show his intelligence is a problem for anyone to deal with.
