It will be old school vs new school at NXT WarGames on December 5 as the men’s WarGames match is now finally set.
The match will see the ‘new school’ team of Carmelo Hayes, Tony D’Angelo, Grayson Waller and Bron Breakker take on the ‘old school’ team of Tommaso Ciampa, Johnny Gargano, LA Knight and Pete Dunne.
The match was set up tonight via a big brawl involving the eight men (and Hayes’ tag partner Trick Williams) which closed the show, after D’Angelo had helped Hayes retain the North American Title over Gargano and Dunne in a three-way.
Knight and Waller had been brawling backstage all night after feuding for the past number of weeks and their fight spilled to ringside. Hayes and Williams tried to injure Gargano, which is when Gargano’s former tag partner Ciampa made the save.
Bron Breakker, who is adamant that he’ll win the NXT Title from Ciampa some point soon, then came out and made it clear that it would be him in the WarGames match, not Williams.
An interesting point to mention is that Gargano’s current WWE contract is set to expire on December 3, but the match will be taking place on December 5, so we’ll keep you updated with any news regarding that situation.
As of a couple of days ago, Gargano hadn’t re-signed, but WWE had made him a “great” offer.
