That is something you can count on and when you get a feud like that going, it can be one of the most entertaining things you can see. One of the best of modern times wrapped up on Wednesday.
Over the last few years, no one has been more linked in NXT than Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano. With so many matches, moments, twists and turns under their belts, they have put together one of the biggest and best stories in the history of NXT. While it has been delayed due to a variety of injuries, it had to come to an end at some point, and that was this week.
This week on NXT, Gargano defeated Ciampa to officially end their feud. The ending game when Gargano’s wife Candice LeRae pretended to turn on him, only to attack Ciampa instead. The match was designated as the final match between the two of them by WWE COO Triple H. This match was originally planned for Takeover; Tampa but had to be moved due to Takeover itself being canceled.
It was a big night. Check out how everything ended and part of how we got here:
Opinion: This is one that I’m going to miss as while it has gone on for years now, it has been one of the best stories that I can remember in a very long time. They have had one great match after another and the mind games have been even better. I’m curious to see where they both go from now, but this feud is one that is going to be remembered for a very long time to come, as it should be.
