Aleister Black interrupted NXT Champion Andrade “Cien” Almas, only to run into a beastly roadblock
NXT Champion Andrade “Cien” Almas & Zelina Vega were flying high after Almas’ triumph over Johnny Gargano last week, a seismic win that led to Johnny Wrestling’s heart-wrenching termination from NXT. Vega bragged about Almas going 4-0 against the beloved Gargano, while Almas joked that Johnny Wrestling should now be called “Johnny Jobless.”
As the powerful pair wrapped up their gloating and headed for the locker room, Aleister Black emerged from the darkness, seemingly to remind El Idolo of his intention to challenge for the NXT Title. Before The Dutch Destroyer could address the champion, however, SAnitY’s Killian Dain stomped to the ring. Having already told Black once before that the path to the NXT Title goes through him, The Beast of Belfast went after the acclaimed striker. Black landed a few blows on the super-heavyweight but missed Black Mass, leaving himself vulnerable as Dain charged off the ropes and crashed down on him with the Divide.
Yet again, The Beast of Belfast stood tall at the close of NXT, while Black was left down and out. Has Dain critically stalled Black’s pursuit of the NXT Title?
