Tommaso Ciampa came to NXT this week to deliver a message to Johnny Gargano, and an unfortunate Austin Theory was the vehicle for that message.

"All Day" arrived at Full Sail ostensibly for a match, but was interrupted by The Blackheart, who commandeered the ring with a microphone in hand, warning Theory that he shouldn't test him on this night.

Ciampa admitted that his tunnel vision — with his sights locked on taking "his life back" by reclaiming Goldie — distracted him from listening to his usual instincts, and thus he wasn't prepared for what Gargano did at TakeOver: Portland like he should have been. 

Theory's patience for open mic night subsided, but he was met with a massive blow from Ciampa when he tried to cut The Blackheart off. He quickly became the target of Ciampa's rage, enduring a ruthless beatdown that saw him repeatedly thrown into the ringside barricade with reckless abandon.
