You want to have a little bit of an unknown factor to it. I think, for 'Johnny Wrestling,' having one of the falls a wrestling match makes sense and the street fight sort of makes sense for the Undisputed Era and sort of the group warfare thing. For talent like Cole and Gargano, it doesn't really matter what stipulation you pick because I think it's going to be spectacular between two of the best in the world, and I can't wait to see it. Levesque's words echo that of fans and critics whom, not all that far removed from digesting the incredible Gargano-Ciampa feud and the implosion of the former NXT champion's on-screen friendship, now will be left to figure out exactly what to do with Gargano-Cole historically should Saturday produce yet another instant classic.
In fact, it was Ciampa's neck injury in March that derailed his scheduled TakeOver: New York main event with Gargano during WrestleMania weekend and opened the door for Cole to replace him. In the three months that followed, the drop in quality from Gargano swapping Ciampa for Cole was nonexistent as the two combined for a pair of spectacular TakeOver main events that have left them on the doorstep of history entering Saturday.
The two feuds have also left Gargano, combined with his January classic against Andrade, as a pro wrestling folk hero who has become just as synonymous with NXT TakeOver as he has with proving able to author an instant classic with anyone he shares the ring with. We made the best of that situation and I wrestled Andrade in Philadelphia and that match would've never happened had Tomasso not tore his ACL, so we got a bonus there.
Then going into the Tommaso neck injury, that leads to me and Cole and bumps that up a bunch. There are so many different variables where if this didn't happen, this wouldn't have happened. But in NXT, we roll with the punches and make the best with what we are given. That speaks volumes of the talent and of the office but also the locker room. While Gargano was quick to mention that an NXT championship feud between himself and Cole was "inevitable" from the moment Cole signed with the brand in , it was their incredible in-ring chemistry that helped them adjust so quickly to being thrown together following Ciampa's injury.
He didn't shy away from admitting there was a certain amount of pressure entering their third bout to produce something that, at worst, is on par with the two matches leading up to it. Whether Gargano and Cole can even get there remains to be seen, which isn't a slight as much as a realistic admiration of just how great the first two chapters of their feud actually were. The two wrestlers had the Barclays Center crowd in Brooklyn, New York, eating out of their hand during WrestleMania weekend as Gargano completed his character's impossible dream of claiming the vacant NXT championship in a best-of-three falls match that veteran scribe Dave Meltzer called the best in WWE history.
I remembered the feeling and the emotion in that building. Even jumping out [of the ring] and seeing people in the crowd pushing and jumping on top of each other.
The Wyckerley Trilogy
I have been in some very cool atmospheres, I have experienced a lot of really, really awesome crowds all over the world but that one was seriously the most fever-pitched I have ever seen an audience in a match. Sleeping that night, the year-old Cole said, was just about impossible because of how "jazzed up" he still was with so much adrenaline still pumping through his body and an almost instant realization that this was the highlight, up to this point, in his already decorated career. Cole said wrestlers are kidding themselves in to say things like match ratings or fan perspective doesn't matter to them.
Although he claims it's important not to obsess over, it's not as if he was unaware that Meltzer graded the first Gargano match 5. But unlike Cole, who has come to terms with the pressure facing him entering Saturday and how much it drives him to be better, Gargano is feeling anything but. It isn't too big for me.
Quentin Tarantino plans 'rewritten history' trilogy
I've always thought of myself as a big match wrestler and there is no bigger match for me than in the main event of NXT TakeOver. While Gargano credits his Cleveland upbringing, in part, for the workhorse mentality he applies to the job, the main reason for his lack of pressure ahead of such a highly scrutinized match is his unique perspective of his own abilities. Simply put -- Gargano is not a fan of his own work. This isn't false humility or a pessimistically critical eye.
This is Gargano, a self-proclaimed "chubby kid" growing up, who still carries himself as a someone who was never supposed to get to this point and he still carries the chip on his shoulder as proof of his underdog mentality.

I think that's the best way to describe myself. I'm a weird guy in the sense that I never feel that anything I'm doing is special," Gargano said. When I walk through the curtain, I never really know and I don't feel it.
T.I. Addresses Comments Concerning Daughter On 'Red Table Talk'
I was told 'no' at my tryouts. None of this was supposed to happen, and I just take it in stride. Going into this match, with our first two matches both over five stars, if there was any pressure I would be feeling it insurmountably but I'm just really excited. I know how special this is and I know how cool this would be so just putting a bit bow on this would be a really cool occurrence. When I decided to try to turn it into a movie, that was a section I had to take out to help tame my material.
Event History – Trilogy Challenge
I have most of that written. It's ready to go; I just have to write the second half of it … That would be the third of the trilogy. It would be [connected to] Inglourious Basterds, too, because Inglourious Basterds are in it, but it is about the soldiers. It would be called Killer Crow or something like that.
