Johnny Gargano is North American Champion once again after he defeated Damien Priest and Leon Ruff at NXT TakeOver: War Games.
Gargano captured the gold when he pinned Leon Ruff after Damien Priest had been taken out by a gang of Gargano’s ghost-faced cronies.
After the match, one of the assailants removed his mask and revealed himself to be Austin Theory.
Gargano defeated Priest to win the title at NXT: Halloween Havoc, but lost it to Leon Ruff on NXT a few days later when Priest interfered.
It was good night for the Gargano family. Earlier, Johnny’s wife Candice LeRae lead her team to victory in the women’s War Games match.
