Johnny Gargano risks his NXT career in NXT Title Match against Andrade “Cien” Almas
If he succeeds, Gargano will finally ascend the throne in NXT, adding a storybook ending to his arduous journey of self-doubt and eventual self-discovery. Plus, he will have shaken the figurative monkey off his back, proving to Almas and Zelina Vega that he can take down El Idolo, a Superstar he has yet to defeat.
If Gargano loses, however, the beloved Johnny Wrestling must leave NXT for good, leaving behind not just the brand he helped raise to another level, but also the faithful NXT fans who’ve had his back every step of the way.
The stakes could not be higher.
Gargano and Almas produced a title bout that was nothing short of an instant classic at NXT TakeOver: Philadelphia in January. With Gargano’s career in jeopardy this time around, there’s no telling how far he will go to protect his livelihood in the black-and-yellow brand or how far Almas will go to rid himself of his doggedly determined challenger once and for all.
Don’t miss this must-see encounter when it goes down tonight on NXT, streaming at 8/7 C exclusively on the award-winning WWE Network.
