Clever enough bit of business from WrestleMania Axxess this afternoon (Sat., April 7), with Daniel Bryan putting over Johnny Gargano’s unsanctioned match at TakeOver: New Orleans tonight. See, if Johnny loses to Tommaso Ciampa, he is done with NXT “for good”, so SmackDown’s General Manager - for now - wants Gargano to take the fall and come join Team Blue:

Sounds like something Ciampa could get behind, right?
Not so fast. The Blackheart doesn’t plan on leaving his old tag partner with the physical ability to wrestle anywhere after TakeOver. He also doesn’t like Bryan sticking his nose in #DIY’s business...
Contractually, I can make that happen at the conclusion of this evening.— BLACKHEART (@ProjectCiampa) April 7, 2018
However, after tonight Johnny Gargano will not be wrestling anywhere, period.

You know, I’m beginning to think Tommaso has issues with bearded, undersized babyface underdogs.
