  2. Wait...Johnny Garagno and Ciampa? Holy shit.
     
  3. That was my reaction, as well.

    It was probably the PPA deal, but hopefully WWE signs them soon or maybe they've already signed 'em, but are keeping quiet. Who knows? Let's wait and see.

    Is this the real life?
     
  6. - Here are the brackets for the WWE NXT Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. The winners of the first-round matches will then go to the semi-finals and the winner of Bracket A will face the winner of Bracket B while the winner of Bracket C will face the winner of Bracket D. The finals will take place on October 7th at Takeover from Full Sail University.

    Bracket A - First Round Matches
    Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady vs. Angelo Dawkins and Sawyer Fulton
    Finn Balor and Samoa Joe vs. The Lucha Dragons

    Bracket B - First Round Matches
    Wesley Blake and Buddy Murphy vs. The Vaudevillians
    Tucker Knight and Elias Samson vs. Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder

    Bracket C - First Round Matches
    Mojo Rawley and Zack Ryder vs. Marcus Louis and Alexander Wolfe
    Jason Jordan and Chad Gable defeated Neville and Solomon Crowe (tonight)

    Bracket D - First Round Matches
    Rhyno and Baron Corbin defeated The Ascension (tonight)
    Tyler Breeze and Bull Dempsey vs. Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa (airs next week)
     
  7. WWE released an article and interview with them, so I'm guessing their gonna be branded as independent wrestlers until they finish up their indy commitments and jump over to full time WWE contracts.
     
  8. Yea, I'm aware of that WWE.com article.

    You know what, let's assume both Ciampa and Gargano have their developmental contracts signed already.

    Now, if Ciampa and Gargano somehow managed to get to the finals and then lost, Regal could come out and say 'Gentlemen, both of have shown you're great workers and I think you deserve NXT contracts.'
     
  9. Below are updated spoiler brackets for the first round:

    Bracket A - First Round Matches
    Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady defeated Angelo Dawkins and Sawyer Fulton
    Finn Balor and Samoa Joe defeated The Lucha Dragons

    Bracket B - First Round Matches
    Wesley Blake and Buddy Murphy vs. The Vaudevillians
    Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder defeated Tucker Knight and Elias Samson

    Bracket C - First Round Matches
    Mojo Rawley and Zack Ryder defeated Noah Kekoa and Alexander Wolfe
    Jason Jordan and Chad Gable defeated Neville and Solomon Crowe

    Bracket D - First Round Matches
    Rhyno and Baron Corbin defeated The Ascension
    Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa defeated Tyler Breeze and Bull Dempsey
     
  10. WWE Tapes Another NXT Dusty Rhodes Classic Match, New Tournament Matches Set

     
  11. So i'm guessing this is the start of the PPA deal with Ciampa and Gargano, kind of a trial run like they did with Samoa Joe. I like what NXT is doing, getting the independents involved is the best way to keep the gears in the industry running.

  14. I'm just interested in seeing dude on TV honestly. Someday, Someday.
     
    • Agree Agree x 1
  15. Yes. The dude deserves more than just a jobber status on the main roster. But we can't always get what we want.

    Seeing him in a hilarious duo with Mojo on NXT is nice.

    Yes! Jordan & Gable are in the semi-finals. Hope they win this whole thing!
     
  17. Damn, wanted Gargano and Ciampa to actually win. Maybe their tour of WWE is over?
     
  18. We don't know for sure, hopefully not. They did work singles matches at last week's TV tapings, so... All we can do is wait and see.
