Default NXT TakeOver: Philadelphia: NXT Championship - Andrade "Cien" Almas VS Johnny Gargano

A few minutes go on tonight's NXT episode, Johnny Gargano defeated Aleister Black, Lars Sullivan and Killian Dane in a #1 contender fatal fourway match to determine Almas' opponent for the next TakeOver event in Philadelphia.

This was something of a surprise as I figured it'd go to Aleister Black but Black was actually the one Gargano pinned so his undefeated streak is technically over. However, Black, like Dane and Sullivan, was protected; in Black's case, the Undisputed Era interfered in vengeance for Black defeating Adam Cole to advance to this bout in the first place.

As for this match itself, I've no doubt it'll be highly entertaining. They had the opening bout at TakeOver: Brooklyn III and it wasn't even heavily hyped, yet that match turned out to be a killer 4 star effort. Almas won that fight due to a slight distraction provided by Zelina Vega in that she tossed a #DIY shirt at Gargano, with the story being that Gargano was still shook up over Tomasso Ciampa turning on him at TakeOver: Chicago. As far as this bout goes, I expect Almas to retain due to a returning Ciampa causing Gargano to lose; I just expect Ciampa to turn up in Philadelphia, cost Gargano the title match and finally enter the feud that they were originally going to have before Ciampa had to take time off to deal with a knee injury. By the time TakeOver: Philadephia comes around, Ciampa will have been out since May so the timeline seems probable.

On the one hand, its an obvious pre-emptive MOTY contender.

On the other hand, the finish is so crushingly obvious, its going to take some of the steam off it, even if only a little. OBVIOUSLY Ciampa is coming back to cost him this match. A better way to go would be to have Gargano pull off the shock win, and then have Ciampa cost him the belt when we all least expect it.....Which is something there is a glimmer of hope for, since this is NXT, and not main roster.

We shall see.

While this will probably be a really good match for those think in-ring is more important then aything else. i fell like the ended will ruin the whole match especially if what everybody is expecting to happen doesn'T happen. Gargano is a great talent but at the same time it fell evident that the whole him finally winning a match and getting the title shot is just a set up for ciampa to return and cost him the match. Either that or he wins the title only to lost it to ciampa when he returns, probably at the mania takeover.

Either way, i've got to say that Gargano need to really take advantage of everything he's getting in NXT because, he's another one that's going to be relocate to the 205 live roster when he finally get called up.
