Johnny Gargano vs. Tommaso Ciampa (First-Round Match)
The final match of the Cruiserweight Classic’s first round is, perhaps, the most talked-about battle since the brackets were revealed, featuring tag team partners Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa squaring off for the last spot in the second round.
The best friends have been making waves in NXT since their arrival last fall, but more so in recent months. A hot streak capped off with a victory over reigning NXT Tag Team Champions The Revival has Gargano & Ciampa in the mix for a title opportunity. But could this chance for singles glory throw a wrench in their tag team dreams?
Gargano has said that he knows he and Ciampa are competitors and will leave everything they have in the ring. Ciampa, a hard-hitting striker, says that while he is not going into the battle to injure Gargano, he’s not going to hold back, because he doesn’t want to lose.
Will Gargano or Ciampa walk out with a spot in the next round? Will their friendship survive this huge showdown? Find out this Wednesday at 9/8 C, only on WWE Network!
