The main event holds an insurmountable level of hype and anticipation as both men played their character perfectly. Johnny Gargano played the resilient underdog while Tomasso Ciampa victimize and assaulted him. Alas in the end, Gargano won the match in a brutal 37 minutes. The match features strong athletic wrestling skills combined with high risk and bone crunching nature of hardcore match.

We still don’t know if it will be match of the year but it sure is one of the candidates so far. Top that, Wrestlemania.
With all dust has been settled, Johnny Gargano will stay at NXT for a while potentially feuding against Aleister Black for the NXT World Championship. The future is still unknown for Tommaso Ciampa, as he might be placed in the NXT NA Championship picture. It’s also still unknown whether both of them will be called up to the main brand anytime soon.
