Johnny Gargano promised to rebuild NXT in his and Candice LeRae’s image, and the pair started that off with a bang tonight, as Gargano took down Dominik Dijakovic in a match on NXT with the help of his wife.
Although Dijakovic looked like he had the upper hand throughout the match, it was LeRae who was instrumental in securing Gargano a win. After Dijakovic hit Gargano with a backbreaker, LeRae came running down to ringside, where she distracted Dijakovic. Once distracted, Gargano quickly pushed him off the top rope and then dove through the ropes onto him. From there, Gargano controlled the pace of the match, and won.
All heart. No soul.
