Johnny Gargano & Tommaso Ciampa def. The Vaudevillains
Days after making their SmackDown debut, The Vaudevillains were looking to also insert themselves back into the NXT Tag Team Title picture. However, the hungry duo of Johnny Gargano & Tommaso Ciampa were out to establish themselves after going their separate ways over the past few months. The manly duo worked over Gargano, focusing on Johnny Wrestling’s arm.
The resilient Cleveland native slipped out of The Vaudevillains’ clutches and tagged in his hard-hitting partner, who staggered English & Simon Gotch with an array of strikes. Gotch nearly caught Ciampa off-guard with a roll-up after a blind tag, but Ciampa kicked out and locked on a deep armbar. Gotch tapped out, giving Ciampa & Gargano a huge victory.
