NXT Takeover War Games: Tommaso Ciampa vs. Velveteen Dream



WWE NXT Takeover War Games Tommaso Ciampa Velveteen Dream NXT

Results of the fourth match of WWE NXT Takeover War Games, Tommaso Ciampa vs. Velveteen Dream for the NXT Championship!

Check out Mitchell’s WWE NXT Takeover War Games Coverage!

NXT TakeOver WarGames II

Velveteen Dream challenged Tommaso Ciampa for his NXT Championship under the bright lights of Los Angeles at WWE NXT Takeover War Games!

  • Velveteen Dream made his entrance first, emulating the NWO’s Hollywood Hogan with his attire and entrance.
  • During both his entrance and the announcements, Tommaso Ciampa repeatedly kissed the nameplate on his NXT Championship.
  • Ciampa would steal Dream’s “Hollywood” headband, then do the Hogan Ear Cusp, which elicited a huge round of boos from the crowd. Dream would get his headband back, not not after doing the Macho Man throat dive over the top rope and Macho Man double ax-handle off the top.
  • Velveteen Dream would later suplex Tommaso Ciampa over the top rope, sending both men crashing to the floor, doing damage to both competitors.
  • The referee would avoid an errant kick from Dream and catch Ciampa pulling the tights in a roll-up that would have otherwise ended the match.
  • Soon after, Tommaso Ciampa would complete a barrage of offense with a Project Ciampa, but Dream kicked out at two.
  • Dream would hit the Swinging Spike DDT on the NXT Championship, which Ciampa brought into the ring. Ciampa himself would then kick out at two.
  • Late in the match we’d see Ciampa take a shot at Mauro Ranallo, which allowed Dream to take the advantage and eventually connect with the Purple Rainmaker… for two.
  • A short time later, Ciampa would score the pinfall to retain his championship after hitting a Draping DDT on the metal sheet connecting the two rings.

NXT Takeover War Games: Johnny Gargano vs. Aleister Black



WWE NXT Takeover War Games Aleister Black Johnny Gargano

Results of the third match of WWE NXT Takeover War Games, Johnny Gargano vs. Aleister Black in grudge match!

Check out Mitchell’s WWE NXT Takeover War Games Coverage!

NXT TakeOver WarGames II

Aleister Black was out for revenge on Johnny Gargano for his unwarranted attack at WWE NXT Takeover War Games!

  • Johnny Gargano hit the ring first, still acting like a babyface (which he should) but questioning the fans’ somewhat negative reaction to him (which he also should). Aleister Black had his usual theatrical entrance.
  • It was noted that this is Johnny Gargano’s 11th Takeover match, the most of any talent on the roster.
  • Johnny took the early advantage, playing mind games with Aleister and showing why he’s still called “Johnny Wrestling.”
  • Both men would trade strikes mid-match before Gargano nailed a Reverse Rana followed by a Leaping Knee Strike from Black.
  • Black stopped Gargano from going for his DIY strike, instead sitting in his trademark position, center ring, and daring Gargano to give him his best shot. Black moved and rolled Gargano up but did not score the fall.
  • The Staples Center broke out into a “Mama Mia!” chant after Black nailed a knee strike when Gargano dove at him through the ropes.
  • Aleister Black would end the match with an exposed knee strike and two Black Mass kicks to score the pinfall victory.
