WWE Raw: Montez Ford Collapses in The Ring After His Drink is Seemingly Spiked

Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins have stepped into a feud with Andrade and Angel Garza heading into SummerSlam surrounding the Raw Tag...

Aleister Black has reigned his division in NXT ever since April when he defeated Andrade ‘Cien’ Almas to become the new NXT Champion in New Orleans. The Dutch Destroyer has already defeated Lars Sullivan to retain his title, someone who was seen as his toughest task to date, but Tommaso Ciampa was the man who was able to finally avoid the Black Mass.

Ciampa and Black have had a back and forth rivalry over the past few weeks, with Ciampa attacking Black in the backstage area a few weeks ago ahead of this NXT Championship match, which shockingly wasn’t something that the company decided to save for a Takeover event.

Black was the favorite heading into the match but after the referee took a bump, Ciampa’s long-time friend turned rival Johnny Gargano thought that this would be the perfect time to interrupt the man who defeated him in Chicago a few short weeks ago.

This obviously backfired, since Gargano attacked both Black and Ciampa and it was Ciampa who recovered first to cover the Champion and win his first singles title in his NXT career.

Gargano took to Twitter to apologize for getting involved since his interference backfired, but he also stated that he would put things right, but it is unknown where this leaves the former Tag Team Champion in his feud with Ciampa since his issues have now cost Aleister Black his Championship as well.

Arguably NXT’s biggest event of the year, Takeover: Brooklyn lands in New York in less than four weeks time, which means there is plenty of time for General Manager William Regal to be able to fix this situation ahead of the event.
