Tonight, Tomasso Ciampa defeated Aleister Black to retain the NXT Championship.

We all thought this would happen. The question is now who Ciampa defend the title against now with Takeover New York coming up. We originally thought this would be the night where Gargano would finally win the NXT Title. But now Gargano is the North American Champion and has seemingly reunited with Ciampa.

So if that's out the window, who could it be? Ricochet now that he lost his title? Riddle after vanquishing Ohno? Adam Cole coming out of nowhere? Velveteen Dream again?

That's my favorite part of this question! I don't know, hehe.

Some people think we're getting title vs. title at this WrestleMania weekend, but I'm not sure either.

Well, the twitter video that was never seen at the end of the broadcast, would perhaps suggest a Fatal 4 way, between Ciampa/Cole/Black/Dream.

Obviously we'll know more when the spoilers come out for the next set of NXT tapings.

Maybe Ricochet, who could find himself in the title hunt after his sort of unclean loss. Too soon for Riddle. At this point I think Riddle is the likeliest guy to take it off him and I bet that happens in the summer if Johnny doesn't turn on him.

I was hoping for title for title vs. Johnny, but since there was no turn tonight, I'm not 100% sure.

Cole is the only other big name left but being a heel is iffy. Unless #DIY reuniting against Undisputed Era in the buildup sets up a betrayal during the match where Gargano costs Ciampa the title.

If Aleister isn't done with NXT yet, I can see him losing to Velveteen, Ricochet or Riddle in a non-title match at the next TakeOver. Lots of possibilities.

Top 3 Matches for TakeOver: NY
Ciampa(c) v Cole
Gargano(c) v Dream / v Ricochet
Black v Ricochet/Riddle/Dream

I don't know, people will most likely say Gargano but I don't think thats happening, at least not yet.

I would like to think Adam Cole or Riddle, even though I don't think Adam Cole really needs the title. Adam Cole does have the better story going into a match though, he promised the UE will get gold in 2019 and with them losing the tag titles I could imagine an scenario where Cole becomes obsessed with trying to capture the NxT title from Tommaso Ciampa.. It writes itself :p

New Jersey: Gargano (c) vs Ciampa (c)
Chicago: Gargano (c) vs Cole
Brooklyn:Gargano vs Cole (c)

Gargano might drop the NA Title soon or after New Jersey on NXT.
Champion vs Champion Match in New Jersey i think.

I want to see Keith Lee involved somewhere. Its been 6 months since his debut and hes getting the EC3 treatment.

They really struggle with the babyfaces though. Ricochet is bad promo, Riddle is still green. Only Dream is hot, its gotta be him.

It'll be Johnny :mj2

It should be a fatal 4 way with all the belts on the line, but I don't get nice things.

I still think it’ll be Gargano losing the NA title back to Ricochet or maybe even Dream after Ciampa costs him that title(intentionally or accidently) And then Gargano finally beating Ciampa for the NXT title. Something about this heel run with Gargano seems like a ruse of some sort and I think it is to fuck with Ciampa and make him drop his guard. You can sense reluctance from Gargano as though he’s only doing these things to appease and manipulate Ciampa until Gargano eventually becomes the puppet master.

Since its coming up it'd be cool as fuck if they'd let NXT use the Elimination Chamber, you could have Ciampa, Black, Gargano, Dream, Cole, and Ricochet in it, that'd be one damn entertaining match to watch.
