There is your development. If you watch enough wrestling, you are going to see some angles and plots come up over and over again. One of the most common is some sort of romance, which is something anyone can understand in a hurry. It is still done to this day and sometimes you get a big step forward. That was the case this week as a big angle reached a climax.

This week’s NXT was headlined by a Love Her Or Leave Her match between Dexter Lumis and Johnny Gargano. If Lumis won, Gargano and the Way would leave Lumis and Indi Hartwell alone. If Gargano won, Lumis and Hartwell had to stay apart. Gargano did win, but after the match was over, Hartwell ran back to the ring and kissed Lumis for the first time. There is no word on if this means Hartwell is no longer part of the Way.

What a sweet moment. Check out what happened and how we got here:

Dexter Lumis vs. Johnny Gargano – Love Her or Lose Her Match: WWE NXT, August 3, 2021

Dexter Lumis sweeps Indi Hartwell off her feet: July 6, 2021

Indi Hartwell and Dexter Lumis show love conquers all with passionate kiss

Opinion: They had to get to this point eventually and that is not a bad thing. The story has been set up well and Hartwell finally defying Gargano to be with Lumis made for a good moment. I’m curious to see where this goes as it is the kind of story that could be taken in a few ways. The two of them might have a future together, but at least they got the big moment right.
