New footage of TakeOver brawl adds another layer to Halftime Heat

NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa freaking the hell out is worth the price of admission every time.

Despite the story seemingly coming out of nowhere, WWE is moving full speed ahead with their promotion of Halftime Heat this Sunday during halftime of the Super Bowl.

Why these six men? Why now?

WWE recently released some more unseen footage from the brawl that took place after TakeOver: Phoenix went off the air.

There’s just no way Tommaso Ciampa plays nice with his teammates this Sunday night.
