SPOILER: Has Local Advertising Revealed Next NXT Champion?
Written By (HipBeatz)
It was declared on last night’s NXT tape that Adam Cole (bay bay) would be heading to NXT TakeOver: ny to face Rebel Gargano in an exceedingly 2-out-of-3-falls match for the new vacated NXT Championship.
The match was created once Tommaso Ciampa was forced to vacate the title after undergoing surgery for a heavy neck injury that may see him miss up to a year within the ring.
A fatal-5-way match was made between Cole, Ricochet, Aleister Black, Matt Riddle and Velveteen Dream which ended in Cole pinning Ricochet to become the number one contender alongside Gargano.
Wrestling Inc are reporting that one of their readers has spotted an advertisement for an NXT Live Event on April 28 in Minnesota which lists a champion vs champion match for the show. The champions in question are Adam Cole and Velveteen Dream, which could suggest Cole will walk out of New York as the new champion.
If accurate, it would also mean that Velveteen Dream will overcome Matt Riddle in their match for the North America Championship.
It is thought that the plan is still for Gargano to be called up to the main roster, but while Ciampa is on the injury table, the main roster may not be the best place for him if there is no plan in place for him as a singles competitor.
