Johnny Gargano Revealed As Aleister Black’s Attacker

Not a lot of news coming from NXT this week. This is likely the consequence of WWE’s main roster taking up much of the spotlight the last few days with Roman Reigns’ announcement and their annoucement that they plan to follow through with the Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia.

From a storyline perspective, much is happening in NXT, however. Last week Aleister Black returned and this week we found out it was Johnny Gargano who attacked him. Ciampa has been adament in his praise for Gargano on Twitter ever since.
