In 2015, Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa joined NXT’s Tag Team scene armed with an optimism for the future and undeniable vigor to succeed. Fast-forward three years, and one would be hard-pressed to find both Superstars peacefully co-existing in the same room. This Saturday night, NXT TakeOver: Chicago II will mark the battlefield on which Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa will attempt to settle their deep-rooted, vitriolic rivalry once and for all. As he prepares to make the trip to The Windy City, Gargano sat down with WWE.com for a final pre-match Q&A.

WWE.COM: Your highly anticipated match with Tommaso Ciampa is rapidly approaching. Why is this match different to you than your last bout in New Orleans?

JOHNNY GARGANO: I needed to win that last match. I needed to defeat Tommaso Ciampa in the middle of the ring to get my NXT career back. Yes, it was unsanctioned, but I knew after it was over that the war was just beginning. With the mindset I’m in and everything that has escalated from that moment, from costing me my NXT Title shot to putting me back in the hospital and bringing my wife into this. Our match in New Orleans will look like a walk in the park compared to this Street Fight.

WWE.COM: How do you feel about the irony of this match taking place in the same city that Ciampa turned on you a year ago?

GARGANO: I believe that everything happens for a reason. One year ago, my “best friend” blindsided me and turned my world upside-down in Chicago. I left the Allstate Arena in an ambulance, I woke up in a hospital bed and had no idea what happened or who put me there. This time around, I have the very rare opportunity to return the favor. I want him to take that same ambulance ride and wake up in that same hospital bed alone and afraid. I want Ciampa to feel every ounce of pain and horror I did, except he’s going to know deep down inside exactly who put him there.

WWE.COM: How much has it meant to you both personally and professionally to have your wife, Candice, by your side?

GARGANO: It means everything. Candice has been my light in the darkness this war has brought on.

WWE.COM: How close were yourself and Tommaso before things went sour?

GARGANO: Our bond was no secret. We shared an apartment in Orlando, Fla. Ciampa was in my wedding to Candice. The NXT Universe watched our friendship blossom from the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic to winning the NXT Tag Titles at NXT TakeOver: Toronto. Our friendship was not manufactured; it was very personal and very real.

WWE.COM: Do you ever wish you and Tommaso were still best friends?

GARGANO: The man who was my “best friend” and tag team partner died in the Allstate Arena a year ago. Maybe this is just who he has been the whole time, I don’t know. But I have absolutely no remorse or regret left in my heart for that man.

WWE.COM: What is your objective at NXT TakeOver: Chicago?

GARGANO: I have one objective: End Tommaso Ciampa. I don’t want to win. The minute he taps out or his shoulders are pinned to the mat, and that bell rings and the match is over and I can’t touch him —that’s the easy way out for him. This match ends when he does.

WWE.COM: If you could deliver one last message to Tommaso Ciampa, what would it be?

GARGANO: I told you that you had no idea what you’ve created. Johnny Wrestling will not be in Chicago. I’m not coming for a wrestling match. I’m coming for a fight. When I saw that blood drip from your head, I realized exactly what I needed to become to finish this once and for all. It takes a Psycho Killer to destroy a Psycho Killer.

We see footage of their unsanctioned fight at Takeover while we get reactions from both men. Johnny says he remembered who Johnny Wrestling is at Takeover New Orleans. His dream since day one is to be the NXT Champion. He knew that once I beat Ciampa, I could do it. I was going to be the NXT Champion.

Ciampa says in your fairy tale world, you thought I wasn’t coming back? Tommaso Ciampa had different plans.

Johnny says just like Chicago

Ciampa says we know that Johnny isn’t half the man he is as we see Candice get knocked off the apron.

Johnny says this was personal since day one, but then you brought Candice into this. We are going back to where this started. He is not coming to wrestle, he is coming to beat the hell out of you.

Ciampa tells Johnny to tell everyone to stay home.

Gargano says he is going to make Ciampa leave Chicago the same way that he did last year

Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa’s battles have rarely been contained by the ring, but that won’t be a concern at NXT TakeOver: Chicago — the site of #DIY’s unforgettable implosion — when the two bitter rivals square off in a Street Fight.

The former best friends have remained at each other’s throats since Johnny Wrestling defeated the psychotic Blackheart at NXT TakeOver: New Orleans in a classic, brutal Unsanctioned Match. Ciampa, who refused to accept the loss, savagely attacked Gargano weeks later, landing his nemesis in a medical facility and a neck brace.

From there, the self-ordained “Tommy Sports-Entertainment” created more grief for Gargano and his friends and family, most notably Johnny’s wife, Candice LeRae. Ciampa taunted LeRae in the aftermath of his heinous attack, and she even got caught in the crossfire when Gargano returned from his career-threatening injury to confront Ciampa (against LeRae’s wishes) when Ciampa sent Johnny Wrestling flying off the ring apron and into his wife.

LeRae doesn’t support the idea of Gargano competing in the Street Fight and continuing his war with Ciampa. When Gargano received the match contract, LeRae flatly told her husband that she is “done with this,” adding that the rivalry with Ciampa has turned Gargano into everything he despises.

What ramifications will Johnny Wrestling’s decision have on his career and his personal life? What type of mayhem is in store when Gargano and Ciampa collide in a lawless Street Fight in the same city that Ciampa betrayed Gargano one year ago? Perhaps most important of all, will Gargano still believe it was all worth it when the dust settles in Chicago?

Find out at NXT TakeOver: Chicago, which streams live on Saturday, June 16, at 8 ET/5 PT, exclusively on the award-winning WWE Network!

EC3 and Fabian Aichner went at it outside the ring early on, and surprisingly, Johnny Gargano walked right past them and went to the announce table, announcing that Gargano vs Ciampa would take place at Takeover: Chicago in a Streetfight, lifting the contract.

He walked right away and EC3 seemed a bit surprised and flustered. The agile Aichner took advantage and jumped on him to the outside from the top turnbuckle. He failed to capitalise and EC3 finished him right after with the one percenter.

When he wakes up and struggles to get out of bed, his body reminds him of that night. His body reminds him of a knee that ran him into the LED board. It reminds of being taken off the stage through a table. He has been doing this his entire life, but he sat down with Candice and he realized that it is time to think about his future.

It is time to think about our future. He needs to ask himself is it worth it? Johnny says with the injuries adding up and the toll it is taking on his friends, his family, and his wife, is it worth it?

Johnny apologizes to Candice and he says it is worth it. Tommaso Ciampa, I know you are back there so come out so they can finish this right now.

Johnny checks on Candice as medical attention is provided for her.
