NXT General Manager William Regal announced today on social media that former NXT champion Aleister Black will be unable to compete in the triple threat match for the NXT Championship against champion Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano at TakeOver: Brooklyn 4. Instead, Ciampa will defend his newly won championship against Gargano in a Last Man Standing match at the SummerSlam weekend event.
Black was recently injured in a live event match against Ciampa. He underwent successful groin surgery but will not be cleared in time for the event.
