One more time. The NXT Title has gone from being a minor league title to one of the most important titles in wrestling. It is the ultimate sign of success in NXT, which has become one of the most thrilling promotions in the world today. Adam Cole won the title for the first time earlier this year and is defending against former champion Johnny Gargano. The two have fought multiple times now and the next one is going to be a little bit different.
At the end of this week’s NXT TV, Gargano returned and attacked Cole in a brawl. After the show was over, General Manager William Regal announced that Gargano will challenge Cole for the NXT Title at Takeover: Toronto. The match will be another 2/3 falls match with Gargano getting to pick a stipulation for a fall, Cole getting to pick a stipulation for another fall and Regal himself picking a stipulation for a third fall if necessary.
The boss wasn’t happy. Check out Regal’s announcement:
Opinion: I’m not entirely sure how much I want to see these two fight again, especially in another 2/3 falls match. The match has kind of been done to death at this point, though the quality is still likely to be high. At least the gimmicks should be able to keep things a little fresher, which is certainly something that the match could use. The build has been good, and if the execution works, everything will be more than fine.
What do you think the gimmicks will be? Who will leave as champion? Let us know in the comments below.
