From the Final Deletion to Daniel Bryan's highly emotional return, this has certainly been a newsworthy week of wrestling in WWE. It was capped off by a fun NXT episode. Yes, this wasn't the most noteworthy episode, really. However, it was a pretty solid hour.

As is customary, we will look back at the episode and list 5 points that we found noteworthy. We hope that you chime in with your opinions in the comments. If your opinions differ from ours, let us know what they are.

As NXT TakeOver: New Orleans approaches, things are well underway for WWE's fan-favourite brand to shine on the big stage again!


#5 Gargano returns to seek retribution

NXT started off with a bang!
NXT started off with a bang!

Tommaso Ciampa sent his former best friend Johnny Gargano packing by interfering in a career vs. title match. Since then, he's grown into the top heel in NXT. In fact, one may even call him the top heel in all of wrestling, judging by the reaction that he usually gets. Even Roman Reigns would be scared of Ciampa's negative reception.

This week, he came out to the ringside area, to gloat once again. He tore up a bunch of posters that fans at ringside were holding up. Even even got into a war of words with a kindly looking old lady.

And then he chanced upon a luchador who was sitting at ringside. The luchador was, of course, none other than Johnny Gargano who fired off a volley of shots, before he was escorted from the ringside area, quite promptly indeed.

Without going into spoilers, it would be a shame if Ciampa vs. Gargano is not a featured attraction at the following TakeOver event.
