“I just left Mr. TakeOver Johnny Gargano’s house, and I can’t hold this in anymore. Johnny’s out of TakeOver,” Theory informed via a video clip on Twitter. “He will not be there for Vengeance Day, and its all because of you, KUSHIDA.”
Theory went onto reveal that he will now face KUSHIDA on tomorrow night’s episode of NXT.
“I’ve always got a smile on my face but its time to be serious. I’m not playing around. Tomorrow night on NXT, KUSHIDA, you will pay. Not in cash or credit, but you will pay in the form of an ass whooping from Austin Theory, and that is The Way.”
