Wednesday’s taped WWE NXT match between Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano has been confirmed to take place in an empty building with a ring inside of it.
As noted, WWE is billing the match as “Blackheart vs. Rebel Heart: One Final Beat” after Triple H announced it on NXT two weeks ago. There will be a referee in the ring with the former DIY partners. There’s no word yet on where the match was taped, but WWE indicated that it was not the empty WWE Performance Center.
Wednesday’s NXT on the USA Network will also feature the six-woman Ladder Match to become the new #1 contender to new NXT Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair. The match will feature Io Shirai, Candice LeRae, Tegan Nox, Dakota Kai, Chelsea Green, and Mia Yim. WWE has not announced when the winner will get their title shot from Flair.

Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano set for one last match
Though Triple H felt that the final showdown between Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano deserved to take place on the biggest stage possible, the two best friends-turned-bitter rivals both agreed that all they needed to settle their score was a ring. So, Triple H is giving them what they want.
Tomorrow night on NXT on USA Network, it will be Blackheart vs. Rebel Heart: One Final Beat. Triple H will give them an empty building with a ring inside and a referee. Two men will enter, and one will stand tall, determining who is the true heart and soul of NXT. But The Game made one thing clear: This is it. If they engage again following this battle, they will both be gone from NXT.
