The representative of the NXT champion decided to give Gargano one last chance
Johnny Gargano will once again face the NXT champion Andrade “Cien” Almas, in a title match. However, if Gargano loses, he must leave NXT forever.
During the transmissions of NXT TV by WWE Network, Johnny Gargano appeared to inform the public of his current situation. Gargano expressed his frustration at not having been able to win the NXT championship, although he was pleased to have had a great fight in the past NXT Takeover: Philadelphia event and won the respect of the people. Andrade Almas and Zelina Vega interrupted the promo to make fun of Gargano’s defeats, which caused Candice LeRae to leave and physically attack Vega.
Vega and Almas took distance, and from the ramp, Vega asked Gargano because he was still persisting, because he had already been defeated three times by the current NXT champion. Vega said she was tired of the persistence of Johnny Wrestling. Gargano responded that he wanted another opportunity and that he will end his NXT career if he did not become the NXT champion. Vega and Almas accepted the challenge, but no concrete date was given for the confrontation.
