Johnny Gargano is the new NXT Champion after defeating Adam Cole in a two-out-of-three falls match in New York earlier this evening.

The two former North American Champions had the Brooklyn crowd in raptures, but it was “Johnny Wrestling” who came out on top and captured the gold after forcing Cole to tap out in the final fall of the match.

Gargano was originally scheduled to face Tommaso Ciampa in tonight’s main event, but plans changed when Ciampa was forced to relinquish the title due to injury.

Following the match, Gargano, his wife Candace LeRae, and Ciampa embraced at the top of the ramp.
