Tommaso Ciampa was unable to regain the NXT title at TakeOver: Portland, and it’s because of his former tag partner Johnny Gargano.
It all went down during the main event when Undisputed Era interfered in the NXT Championship match between Ciampa and Adam Cole.
After Tommaso fended them all off, Gargano made an appearance ringside and stopped Tommaso from grabbing the title to use on Cole. He then pelted “The Blackheart” with “Goldie,” allowing Adam Cole to get the pinfall victory.
Undisputed Era celebrated in the ring afterward as an angry Gargano – who lost to Finn Balor earlier in the evening – looked back on Ciampa.
Watch how it all went down in the video below.
