WWE NXT General Manager William Regal has announced Johnny Gargano vs. Aleister Black vs. NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa for the “Takeover: Brooklyn IV” event during WWE SummerSlam weekend.
As noted earlier today in our spoiler report, it’s likely that the Triple Threat will be changed to Gargano vs. Ciampa in a singles match due to Black’s injury. Black recently underwent surgery for a groin injury and he’s expected to miss Takeover due to the injury. We will keep you updated on the Takeover main event but WWE has the Triple Threat listed as of this writing, which was announced at the last NXT TV tapings before Black underwent surgery.
Takeover takes place on Saturday, August 18 from the Barclays Center during SummerSlam weekend.
