Tom Phillips and HHH kick off the show. HHH jokes that he is still working multiple jobs tonight and that he did a great job on Phillips makeup tonight. HHH throws to a video package featuring the feud between Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano.
Gargano and Ciampa’s journey at the Performance Center started together. Both of them were rejected by WWE at the same time. After going through that together their relationship grew into a friendship. Gargano was in the Cruiserweight Classic, but Ciampa wasn’t. Ciampa pitched to HHH to face Gargano in the first round. That match was magic. Ciampa still gets chills thinking about that match. Gargano says he knew this would live on for a while. At one point in the match, Ciampa hesitated because they were friends.
Ciampa knew Gargano deserved it. Gargano says he knows he is better than Ciampa. This led to their tag run in NXT. Gargano says that even in a loss they realized that they could win the tag titles eventually. Ciampa says he wouldn’t have submitted like Gargano did during their first tag title shot. Gargano says he regrets tapping out and he regrets letting Ciampa down. The NXT Universe needed them to win the tag titles in Toronto, and they did. Ciampa and Gargano discuss their other triumphs and what led to their eventual breakup.
