Johnny Gargano def. Humberto Carrillo
Fresh off his WWE 205 Live debut, Humberto Carrillo hoped to deliver the biggest upset of the new year as he battled Johnny Gargano. Unfortunately for Carrillo, Johnny Wrestling would not be stopped in his mission of making 2019 all about “wins and championships.”
Gargano weathered Carrillo’s thrilling aerial attacks and nearly kicked a hole through Carrillo’s head when the Mexican Superstar came flying off the top rope with a moonsault attempt. Gargano soon shifted into high gear, connecting with a series of moves that culminated with a slingshot DDT for the win.
Johnny TakeOver sent a crystal-clear message to NXT North American Champion Ricochet after the match, staring directly into the camera and telling Ricochet that he’ll give him “all the respect you can handle” if The One and Only shows up next week on WWE NXT.
