Austin Theory vs. Johnny Gargano has been announced for tonight’s WWE NXT episode.
WWE announced the match this afternoon. The match was made after Gargano blamed Theory for his loss to NXT North American Champion Damian Priest at the recent “Takeover: 31” event.
As seen in the video above, Theory revealed that he approached NXT General Manager William Regal and had the match made. He also predicted that Priest will retain his title over Dexter Lumis on tonight’s show. Theory says Lumis can’t possibly go into tonight’s match at 100% because of how he left him last week.
Gargano responded to the announcement on Twitter and wrote, “Tonight. There are lessons to be learned.”
