- The WWE website has a new Q&A with Johnny Gargano to promote the Chicago Street Fight with Tommaso Ciampa at WWE NXT "Takeover: Chicago II" on Saturday. Gargano commented on his objective with the match:

"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."
