We are back and NXT Men’s Champion Tommaso Ciampa makes his way to the ring.
Ciampa tells the title belt he loves it and then he listened to what it has to say.
Ciampa says that music is a personal message from the champ to each and every one of you. That music is his way of saying to you in the most polite way, he knows how. He has heard the whispers and he has seen the people pointing their finger. They know who took out Aleister Black. It was Ciampa. Ciampa asks what do you base this on. Your imagination? He does not live in make believe, he is in the real world and he bases it on facts. When he confronts someone he does it in front of an audience. When he wants to do anything, he will do it in front of the biggest stage because he wants everyone to see their master work.
Ciampa says he will not stand in the ring and lie to you because the champ never lies. Ciampa says he had all of the intentions in the world of taking out Aleister Black before Takeover, but someone beat him to the punch. Ciampa says he wants to know who that somebody might be. If he knew who it was, he would pat him or her on the back and tell them ‘job well done’. Do not confuse things for one second. Even if Aleister Black had made it to Takeover Brooklyn, the result would have been the same. Gargano loses. Black loses. He wins.
Ciampa says the title has something it would him to tell all of you. It thanks Tommaso and says it felt good to be back in the main event of Takeover. Ciampa says he is the champion and he talks the talk and walks the walk. When he says he will do something, he does it. That is what makes Tommaso Ciampa the greatest success story in NXT. That is what makes Tommaso Ciampa YOUR NXT Champion.
Ciampa says he has one final thing he would like to address and he wants everybody to listen. The fact is that you want to be a success. If you want to be a winner. If you want to be a champion. Follow the lead of Tommaso Ciampa.
Ciampa leaves the ring and he takes a Gargano sign from a fan in the front row.
