Johnny Gargano will look to rewrite Austin Theory’s plans for NXT’s future in a high-level clash tonight. On his way into the Capitol Wrestling Center, Theory confirmed that William Regal had the match with Gargano official.
“All Day” has repeatedly asserted that he’s the future of NXT, but he will have to defeat one of the most decorated competitors in the history of the brand. Theory made quick work of Leon Ruff last week, but then, Dexter Lumis emerged for a brutal beatdown of the brash Superstar. Johnny Wrestling will look to get back on track after falling to Damian Priest in an NXT North American Championship clash at NXT TakeOver 31.
Can Theory start creating the history he wants? Or will Gargano provide a reminder of who leads the black-and-gold brand?
Don’t miss the highly anticipated showdown on NXT tonight at 8/7 C on the USA Network.
