The show is set to be headlined by NXT Champion Adam Cole and Johnny Gargano who will go one-on-one for the third consecutive Takeover event, this time in a two-out-of-three falls match.
Johnny Gargano has not wrestled much since NXT Takeover: XXV, where he dropped the NXT Championship to Adam Cole.
Speaking about Gargano’s condition, Triple H had the following to say to the media on a recent call before Saturday’s show:
“He’s fine. Without me getting into medical details of people because I can’t, it was a little lingering thing that if… it’s one of those funny things that in the athletic world, you go, ‘This is sort of nothing.’ … This is just one of those little things where I was like, ‘Let’s take you off of some stuff, even though you’re fine because I don’t want this to become something more than this is.’”
“It’s cleared up and he’s totally fine. It’s just one of those little things that you don’t want to take a risk of becoming something more than it is. Not because it’s a serious thing that could be career-threatening or anything like that, but just because then if you do get to the point, now you do have to take a significant period of time off to get this thing to shut down totally, to be able to have it heal 100%. It was more precautionary than it was anything else, but I would rather take that precaution now, than have it become something more down the line.”
This comes after Johnny Gargano reportedly took up a new role at NXT Live Events while taking some time away from the ring.
