If you’ve read the recent NXT TV taping results, you know that Johnny Gargano won a Fatal Four Way match to be the number one contender and challenger to Andrade Almas’ NXT Championship at the next TakeOver event Royal Rumble weekend.
But in a tweet posted this morning, General Manager William Regal announced that there will be qualifying matches for the Fatal 4 Way match featuring Kassius Ohno vs. The Velveteen Dream, Aleister Black vs. Adam Cole, Killian Dain vs. Trent Seven and Rodrick Strong vs. Lars Sullivan. Obviously there is no mention of Gargano and Dream was never a part of the original TV tapings. Time will tell if WWE will tape a new Ohno/Dream match and retape the 4 Way or if an angle will take place that inserts Gargano into The Dream’s spot.
