With Kushida now in his rearview mirror, Johnny Gargano has now turned his attention to Dexter Lumis. Now, a match between the two has been announced for NXT TV.
WWE announced the non-title match earlier today. With Lumis seemingly being behind the abduction of Austin Theory recently, Gargano will look to exact a measure of revenge. Here is the official preview from WWE.com:
Johnny Gargano and company have been reunited with Austin Theory, but Dexter Lumis is still lurking.
The NXT North American Champion will square off with Lumis in a non-title match this Wednesday night on NXT.
Gargano and Theory have been at odds with the black-and-gold brand’s Tortured Artist for several weeks. The stakes grew more frightful at NXT TakeOver: Vengeance Day when Lumis seemingly abducted Theory right behind Gargano.
A dilapidated white van — similar to one we’ve previously seen Lumis involved with — pulled up last week on NXT, and Theory eventually reemerged in the Capitol Wrestling Center, though Lumis was nowhere to be found.”
Gargano and Lumis also competed on the January 13, 2021 episode of NXT TV. In that battle, Gargano came out on top.
