Johnny Gargano battles Andrade “Cien” Almas in a TakeOver rematch tonight
Gargano and Almas’ thrilling duel at TakeOver ended in controversy when Almas’ business manager, Zelina Vega, distracted Gargano with a ghost from his past in the form of a #DIY T-shirt. Since returning from an injury caused by his former teammate Tommaso Ciampa, Johnny Wrestling has seemingly tried to put his troubles with #DIY behind him as he looks to establish himself as a force in the singles division.
His loss to Almas represents a blemish on an otherwise flawless record. Aiming to redeem himself, Gargano requested the rematch with Almas, which NXT General Manager William Regal granted.
Since falling to Almas, Gargano notched back-to-back wins against powerhouse ex-footballers Riddick Moss & Tino Sabbatelli. Almas, meanwhile, has been on nothing less than a hot streak since forming his alliance with Vega.
Gargano vs. Almas blew away the NXT Universe in Brooklyn, and there’s no telling what fireworks await when they lock up again. Don’t miss this TakeOver rematch when it goes down on NXT tonight, exclusively on the award-winning WWE Network.
