While the first night of tapings for the Mae Young Classic was taking place at Full Sail University, tonight’s previously recorded episode of WWE NXT was on the air on the WWE Network. The main event of the evening saw Johnny Gargano take on Aleister Black, as Aleister looked to exact some revenge on Johnny Wrestling after he cost him the NXT Championship to Tommaso Ciampa a couple of weeks back.
Unfortunately, Black was unable to do that as Ciampa inserted himself into the fracas, causing the match to be thrown out. This would lead to a brawl around ringside between all three men which referees tried to break up, which in turn led to General Manager William Regal making his way to the stage. Regal spoke about how he couldn’t control the tempers of the three NXT Superstars, therefore he wouldn’t try to anymore, announcing that they they will meet at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn 4 on August 18th in a Triple Threat for the NXT Title.
Of course, Aleister was injured at a Live Event in Las Vegas after this match was taped and had to undergo surgery for a groin injury (read about that here). Today, multiple sites have jumped on our previous report that it’s very likely Black will not be able to compete at TakeOver, but for the time being the match is still official. Here’s a look at the updated TakeOver: Brooklyn card:
