Continuing the run of emerging NXT talent making an impact were NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa & NXT North American Champion Johnny Gargano, who were rekindling their former #DIY partnership for the second straight night after besting Raw Tag Team Champions The Revival on Raw.
Ciampa & Gargano continued to fall back into their old rhythms, fluidly taking the fight to The Bar, who are arguably the most dominant tag team in WWE over the past several years. Sheamus & Cesaro weren’t here to play anybody’s fool, however, and they attempted to slow Ciampa & Gargano’s dynamic attack by implementing their size and strength advantages.
In the clutch, it appeared that Gargano & Ciampa were reeling. The Bar had done great damage to Ciampa’s knee, and Gargano was seemingly on dream street, but a surging Ciampa made a shrewd blind tag, rolling up Cesaro and catching him off-guard for the three-count.
