During a backstage segment last week in which Johnny Gargano and Candice LeRae confronted Mia Yim, Isaiah Scott was on hand to restrain Gargano.
As you’d probably have expected, a match between the two has now been announced. WWE.com writes:
After a heated confrontation, Isaiah “Swerve” Scott and Johnny Gargano will look to settle their issue in the ring this Wednesday night at NXT’s Great American Bash.
Gargano was with wife Candice LeRae for a backstage interview following her loss in last week’s Fatal 4-Way Elimination Match, but the situation quickly devolved into a pull-apart brawl between LeRae and Mia Yim, who are set for a Street Fight.
Also present was “Swerve,” whose attempt to break up the brouhaha was met with scorn from Gargano. Soon, the two men were involved in their own dustup as well.
The veteran Johnny Wrestling will likely look to teach Scott a thing or too, but he shouldn’t discount his opponent. After an impressive showing in the NXT Cruiserweight Title Tournament, “Swerve” has been reeling off victories left and right on 205 Live. Can he obtain what would be the biggest feather in his cap with a win over Gargano?
The confirmed card for the show is now as follows:
- Adam Cole (NXT Champion) vs. Keith Lee (North American Champion) – Winner Takes All
- Candice LeRae vs. Mia Yim – Street Fight
- Johnny Gargano vs. Isaiah Scott
- Legado del Fantasma vs. Drake Maverick & Breezango
WrestleTalk.com will have live coverage for night two of both Great American Bash and Fyter Fest tomorrow night.
