On what Tommaso Ciampa will do next:

Tommaso Ciampa savagely attacked Johnny Gargano several weeks ago, putting his former best friend out of commission with a horrifying display of malice. The Blackheart followed up with more punishment last week when he defeated Kassius Ohno, who was attempting to avenge Gargano. With Ciampa’s sadistic plans seeming to come to fruition, where does the psychotic Blackheart go from here?

On the new alliance taking on The Undisputed Era:

Bonded by their mutual disdain for Undisputed ERA, WWE U.K. Champion Pete Dunne will join forces with Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch to face NXT North American Champion Adam Cole and NXT Tag Team Champions Roderick Strong & Kyle O’Reilly in a Six-Man Tag Team Match tonight on WWE Network.

The BruiserWeight’s alliance with Lorcan & Burch is one of practicality. Lorcan & Burch saved the U.K. Champion from Undisputed ERA’s three-on-one attack on May 2, but that was more due to Lorcan & Burch’s own problems with ERA than any sort of loyalty to Dunne, a notorious loner. (In fact, in making the case for forming a team, Lorcan matter-of-factly described Dunne as “a piece of garbage,” and Dunne didn’t object.)

In contrast, Undisputed ERA are indisputably aligned. Will Cole, Strong & O’Reilly’s cohesiveness give them an edge against the smash-mouth trio? Or can Dunne, Lorcan & Burch use their extreme animosity toward Undisputed ERA to unite and propel themselves to victory? Find out when NXT streams on the award-winning WWE Network tonight at 8/7 C!
