Three Superstars who may be the final member of Team Ciampa at NXT Takeover: War Games III
NXT Takeover: War Games III will take place approximately two weeks from now on November 23rd, 2019. Two War Games matches have already been announced for the event. In the first-ever Women's War Games match, NXT Women's Champion Shayna Baszler, Io Shirai, Bianca Belair, and an unknown partner will face off against Rhea Ripley, Candice LeRae, Tegan Nox, and Mia Yim. Undisputed Era will also team together in War Games for the third consecutive year against Matt Riddle, Keith Lee, and Tommaso Ciampa, as well as an unnamed partner.
Tommaso Ciampa made his return to NXT after Undisputed Era had an extremely successful night. Adam Cole retained the NXT Championship against Matt Riddle and Undisputed Era successfully defended their championships against The Street Profits. Keith Lee and Matt Riddle both have their own issues with Undisputed Era costing them title opportunities and joined Tommaso Ciampa in his crusade to take down the group. There is, however, one partner still yet to be named.
We take a look at three NXT Superstars who might join Team Ciampa in their upcoming War Games match against Undisputed Era.
#3: Johnny Gargano
Before Finn Balor's shocking heel turn, Johnny Gargano was certainly going to be a part of this match. However, there is now a possibility that Johnny Gargano is going to face off against Finn Balor in a singles match. At this point, there is only one way in which 'Johnny Wrestling' can be added to this bout. If Finn Balor is added to Undisputed Era's team, then Johnny Gargano will almost certainly be added to Tommaso Ciampa's team to even the odds.
It doesn't make sense for Johnny Gargano to have been ready to fight alongside Tommaso Ciampa against Undisputed a few weeks ago, only for him to be removed from this feud. There is also not an abundance of babyface talent on the roster and Johnny Gargano would certainly be the most skilled Superstar that can be added to the match, as there are few in all of WWE that can match his in-ring abilities.
