Main event for NXT Takeover: Phoenix set

 
 

The main event for NXT Takeover: Phoenix was set last night during the latest episode of NXT TV on the WWE Network.

NXT champion Tommaso Ciampa will be defending the title against former champion Aleister Black. This will be a rematch from the July 25 episode of NXT where Ciampa defeated Black following interference from Johnny Gargano. Gargano and Black will be wrestling in a steel cage match in two weeks time on NXT and with the show well over a month away it would not be a surprise if Gargano is added to the main event.

Ciampa vs Gargano vs Black was the original main event for NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn 4 but Black got injured and it was played out in an angle where somebody took out Black outside Full Sail University. That somebody ended up being Gargano.
