Two weeks ago at NXT Takeover: Philadelphia Johnny Gargano put everything he had into one of the greatest performances in WWE history, but it wasn’t quite enough to overcome the NXT Champion Andrade Cien Almas or his crafty manager Zelina Vega.
Gargano returned to Center Stage in Atlanta this week to discuss his future, thanking the WWE Universe for earning their respect at Takeover, even if he didn’t take home the gold. He attempted to call out his old tag team partner and rival Tommaso Ciampa but was quickly cut off by Almas and Vega, who were keen to celebrate their recent victories. Desperate for another chance, Johnny agreed to a deal in which he will put his NXT career on the line in exchange for one more shot at the NXT Championship.
Gargano vs. Almas IV is set to take place on the February 21st edition of WWE NXT television. Follow this link for full spoiler-filled results.
