    I wonder if theres any chance Ciampa wins and Gargano comes up, then do Black/Ciampa at some point, with the eventual Ciampa callup looming over johnny

    They don’t typically link their main roster stories to those in NXT. And it seems almost every callup does a turn not long after.

    I’d say it’s not a given Gargano wins. But I also don’t know how you don’t payoff Gargano winning the championship.

    Gargano has lost so many big matches recently that I don't know how him not winning wouldn't be a total letdown. I think this is the one match that he needs to win for the sake of his character.

    Crazy to think after how much talent has left NXT.

    I know he has a fantastic beard and excellent vascularity, but Ciampa is such a dick.

    So excited for this show. I'd be curious if you could put a better 2-3 hour block of the Mania matches and can that stack up to this NXT card.

    I think Asuka-Charlotte will "eclipse" Ember-Shayna but the other 4 matches will be excellent.

    You could get a classic in the Smackdown tag title match but the potential is there for the NXT tag match to top that.

    Gargano-Ciampa is the feud of the year and we're only in April...I think we saw that coming going back to the breakup in Chicago. A.J.-Nakamura has history but the story hasn't been told well enough. This NXT feud is about as good of a breakup angle as any.

    Almas is a rising star but Black is probably the top guy in the roster (and that's saying something with this current crop). That'll be a moment if Black does win the belt. Almas has elevated to being main roster-worthy.

    The 6-man ladder match is mouthwatering...good mix of competitors and some big debuts. Really tough to pick a favorite. I'd say Dream or either of the debuting stars (EC3 or Ricochet). I've said before...how much of badass is Cole for working double duty? He'll probably help O'Reilly keep the tag belts.

    Great card, but NXT is starting to have the same problem the main roster is having, which is leading to all these multi men matches.

    I wouldn't right off Almas retaining and Black going to the main roster. I am 80% that Almas will head up, but I also don't think Black has much more to accomplish in NXT and he could go straight to RAW or SDL.

    The show will be awesome.

    Most likely back-to-back matches, gotta think either the tag or ladder match opens with the other following it.

    Gargano/Ciampa, Womens belt and NXT title being the last 3 matches. Still gotta wonder what main events. The NXT title hasn't always main evented so maybe Gargano/Ciampa main events.

    I'm going to the Flyers game in the afternoon, and I just realized how quickly everything will be ok when they lose.

    I was thinking, what the hell match do you start with? Like all of these matches are main events. Maybe the women aren't but I don't think they'll put them first.

    I would imagine it goes like this:

    -tag titles
    -women
    -Gargano/Ciampa
    -ladder match
    -NXT title

    Although they’ve always made ladder matches the main event.

    By the way does unsanctioned mean no DQ?
