3 Things WWE secretly told us at NXT TakeOver XXV
Among the emerging threat of the newest competitor AEW and continuous declining quality of the product on the main roster, NXT TakerOver XXV assured us tonight that WWE does have what it takes to give a head to head fight to Cody and company.
From the start to the very end, TakeOver tonight was a huge success. It might not have been the best TakeOver that NXT has produced, but that's more of a proof of the developmental brand's excellence than anything else.
The show was filled with amazing matches, great in-ring action, and huge surprises. The fatal four-way tag team ladder match saw Street Profits become the new NXT Tag Team Champions in a jaw-dropping contest. The night ended with the Undisputed Era standing tall as Adam Cole defeated Johnny Gargano to become the new NXT Champion in the main event of the night.
In what was a brilliant reply to AEW's Double or Nothing, WWE told us many secret things through the show tonight. In this article, let's take a look at the 3 things WWE and NXT secretly told us at NXT TakeOver XXV.
#3 Johnny Gargano might move to the main roster soon
While all the matches at TakeOver tonight were amazing, the two matches that stood out for me were the Fatal four-way Tag Team ladder match and the main event between Adam Cole and Johnny Gargano.
In what was a surprising title change, Adam Cole became the new NXT Champion by defeating Gargano clean. The key word here is "clean" because if this was an interference or distraction finish, the story would have been different.
I did not expect Gargano's reign to end so soon, and the biggest question now is what's next for Mr. Wrestling. With Cole at the top of the mountain now, will Johnny move to the main roster permanently? Just to remind you, Gargano did move-up to the main roster a few months ago along with Ricochet, Aleister Black, and Tomasso Ciampa, but moved back to NXT after his title victory at NXT TakeOver New York.
He might continue his feud with Cole for the time being leading to a decider match at the SummerSlam weekend after which he might move up to RAW or SmackDown full time.
