Tommaso Ciampa wins the NXT championship

New, 20 comments

It was one hell of a ride just to get to the Fatal 4-Way for the NXT championship on this week’s episode of NXT 2.0 in Orlando. Samoa Joe relinquished the title due to injury just days ago, then LA Knight lost a match to the debuting Bron Breakker, then Kyle O’Reilly was taken out backstage and replaced by the man who saved him, newcomer Von Wagner.

Some of the action:

The match was predictably good, even by its own standards, and despite the nature of the circumstances. In the end, Tommaso Ciampa, so eager to win Goldie back, managed to do just that. The greatest love story in sports entertainment takes center stage once again, and Ciampa will be the champion to lead NXT 2.0 into the future.

Wagner, for his part, looked every bit like he belonged in the match. We’ll see what comes next for him after such a great placement in his first big appearance.
