The era of The Blackheart has begun, and new NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa was all too happy to rub it in the faces of the NXT Universe.

In his first address as champion, The Scourge of NXT boasted about his controversial title win against Aleister Black, declared that the most dangerous man in NXT had finally taken his rightful place at the head of the table and said that Johnny Gargano’s failure to prevent Ciampa from winning the championship gold was the icing on the cake.

After Ciampa called himself the “greatest sports-entertainer of all time,” Black made a beeline for the ring, but The Dutch Destroyer was beaten to the punch by Gargano. Gargano sent Ciampa flying from the ring, and as Ciampa escaped, Gargano reminded Ciampa that his interference is what led to The Blackheart's crowning moment.

Unfortunately for the unsuspecting Gargano, Black agreed. As soon as the former Johnny Wrestling turned around, Black demolished him with Black Mass. He then took the microphone and sat cross-legged next to Gargano’s supine body, adding, “I guess you’re right. The only reason he’s NXT Champion is because of you.”
