WWE NXT preview, Aug. 8, 2018: Johnny Gargano and Aleister Black collide
Though NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa remains in the crosshairs of both Johnny Gargano and Aleister Black, Gargano and Black still have plenty of beef to settle. After Black wiped out Gargano with a retaliatory Black Mass last week — an act that Gargano admitted he deserved — the two NXT favorites are set to go one-on-one this week on WWE Network.
Black and Gargano battle with The Blackheart on their minds
Aleister Black has been none too pleased with Johnny Gargano since Gargano’s lingering loathing for Tommaso Ciampa inadvertently cost The Dutch Destroyer the NXT Championship two weeks ago. Now with Ciampa atop the mountain and with Black dropping Gargano last week, Black and Gargano will duke it out with both clearly eyeing an opportunity to challenge Ciampa for the NXT Championship. Who will get the imperative W that could get them one step closer to their desired encounter with the psychotic Blackheart? Find out Wednesday night.
