SPOILER: NXT TAKEOVER MAIN EVENT UPDATE

By Mike Johnson on 2018-08-08 15:01:00

Although tonight's episode of WWE NXT features an angle setting up a Triple Threat match between Johnny Gargano, Tommaso Ciampa and Aleister Black for the WWE NXT Takeover: Brooklyn IV event on 8/18 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. NY, that match will likely not take place.

PWInsider.com has confirmed that Aleister Black is, as of today, not expected to be cleared for the main event after undergoing surgery following a groin injury suffered on a NXT live event.

Currently, Black is not even expected to be at the Takeover event.

With two weeks to go, we'll update if there are any changes but it appears Gargano vs. Ciampa for the NXT Championship will headline the event.
