Here’s Johnny!: Gargano stuns Tommaso Ciampa with surprise attack from the crowd
This much was made clear as Ciampa tried, for a third consecutive week, to address the NXT Universe. Unlike his two previous attempts, which were interrupted by NXT fans’ outpouring of support for Gargano, Ciampa finally spoke this time around, barking that Gargano is “gone!” while fans, Gargano emoji signs in hand, chanted “We want Johnny.”
Ciampa then roamed around the ringside area, tearing up one Gargano poster after another, until he reached a fan wearing a lucha libre mask. To Ciampa’s shock and terror, the fan ripped off his mask to reveal himself as Gargano in disguise. Johnny Incognito fired off a series of punches on The Sicilian Psychopath, leaving Ciampa scrambling for cover until NXT security pried Gargano off and escorted him out of the building.
With or without an NXT contract, Gargano appears hell-bent on scoring retribution.
