Aleister Black revealed on tonight’s episode of WWE NXT that he is coming for Tommaso Ciampa, as the former NXT Champion has officially invoked his rematch clause for this January’s highly anticipated NXT Takeover: Phoenix event.
HOWEVER… There is currently a cold and unforgiving steel cage in between Black and his dream of reclaiming the black-and-yellow brand’s top prize. Inside that steel cage stands a very pissed off, extremely determined Johnny Gargano who is hell-bent on revenge.
As reported, NXT General Manager William Regal has officially confirmed that Black and Gargano will collide in an NXT Takeover: WarGames rematch on a future episode of the show (it’s either two weeks away, or three).
While the wielder of the Black Mast is technically guaranteed his title shot — even though we haven’t heard a single word about it in the last few months — those plans could wind up changing based on the results of this upcoming bout; that is, if either man actually manages to survive.
