ORLANDO, Fla. — NXT Champion Andrade “Cien” Almas and Zelina Vega were all smiles as they kicked off NXT, and why not? Almas is the new NXT Champion after dethroning Drew McIntyre at TakeOver: WarGames.
Making their first appearance on NXT since the momentous title victory, Almas showcased an energy not seen before from the highly acclaimed luchador. Almas proudly recounted his triumph over McIntyre, including how he injured the now former NXT Champion.
With the wily Vega by his side and his confidence sky high, can anyone unseat NXT’s new top titleholder? The NXT Universe will find out at TakeOver: Philadelphia, when the winner of a No. 1 Contender’s Tournament — which will take place over the next few weeks — challenges Almas.
