For months, Andrade “Cien” Almas & Zelina Vega tormented Johnny Gargano & Candice LeRae, but tonight, Mr. & Mrs. Johnny Wrestling got the last laugh.

LeRae ripped in to Vega at the start of their one-on-one encounter, but a distraction by Almas allowed Zelina to turn the tide. It also prompted Gargano to come to the ring to even the odds. Borrowing from Almas’ arsenal, Vega hit Candice with the Meteora running knees, but LeRae countered Vega’s attempted Hammerlock DDT into an inside cradle for a near fall. Candice, in an ode to her husband, dropped Vega with a flying headscissors into the Gargano Escape. Almas tried to break the hold but was stopped by Gargano, who hit El Idolo with his own headscissors into the Gargano Escape. In a scene of true bliss, LeRae then forced Vega to submit, humbling the nefarious duo as they leave NXT for SmackDown LIVE.

LeRae soaked in the victory, and Gargano reminded everyone of his challenge to NXT Champion Aleister Black. With his name invoked, The Dutch Destroyer entered the arena and said Gargano shall receive his opportunity next week, seemingly setting the stage for a massive NXT Title showdown on WWE Network.
