I don't think they give him that platform if he's leaving. I think he's taking time off to be with Candice and he'll be back with WWE after the baby is born.

After the show went off the air, Ciampa came out and checked on Gargano. The two then sat in the ring together and cried. That doesn’t sound like only paternity leave. Meltzer says he really hasn’t re-signed yet.

Whatever it is, it's a great deal for him, because everyone is talking about him. There are a variety of scenarios that could make sense. Marina Schafir was at the AEW Dark tapings in Orlando on Friday. I wouldn't be surprised if she was on the phone to her husband and somehow Tony Khan got a hold of her phone and Johnny Gargano and Kyle O'Reilly got a hold of Roddy's phone somehow. I don't really get how staying with NXT can be a pull for a guy like Gargano unless they just throw money at him. Even then, we've see that if they think you are being overpaid, they won't hesitate to release you. As a performer, he has to decide if he wants  the huge pop for his next appearance to be 200 NXT 2.0 fans or 10,000 AEW fans. I'm ruling out 5,000 WWE fans, because even if he joins the main roster, I don't see them introducing him in a way that would get a huge reaction.

In the meantime, Kyle O'Reilly confirmed that his loss to that dude whose new name I don't even know in the steel cage match last night was his final NXT appearance.

I think Gargano is going to just take time off to be with Candice and the baby and he'll sign somewhere around March or April of next year. There's no reason to sign anywhere now when he wants to spend time with the family, and in 3-4 months who knows what the landscape will be like?

Meltzer is reporting that the internal belief is that both Gargano and O'Reilly will re-sign, but obviously that's far from a sure thing.

The NXT 2.0 PPV last night, Throwback Throwdown, was really good. They did a really great job of getting all these new characters over. Probably a few too many Canadian gimmicks for Vince, but that's an easy fix when they get to the main roster.

Bron Brekker best Tommaso Ciampa clean with the Steiner Recliner to win the NXT title.

Carmelo Hayes beat Roderick Strong to unify the North American and Cruiserweight titles (and essentially end the Cruiserweight division).

There’s not a lot left to do to finish burying NXT after tonight.

Rick Steiner was there and celebrated in the ring with Brekker after NXT went off the air, so then not calling him a Steiner is beyond absurd now.

WWE finally convinced WALTER to move to the U.S. and he has been announced as a full-time member of NXT now. A farewell match to NXT UK will air in the coming weeks against Nathan Fraser. They were pretty much at a stalemate with him for months as he refused to move. This probably saved his job as they clearly were high on him and he’s getting paid more than anyone else in NXT UK by a lot, but they didn’t want him there anymore. Now in 2.0 and on Vince’s radar, I shudder to think how he’ll be used and how far he will fall in presentation. I have a feeling he’ll get lost within 2 months and wind up released anyway when they wonder why his new Oktoberfest gimmick doesn’t get over.

And of course the first thing they do with him is job him and Imperium to an ad hoc team with Matt Riddle.

First video package and it’s typical “foreigner thinks Americans are lazy and stupid” tripe. Just Vince 101 nonsense that last got over in 1987. I’m sure Vince doesn’t even know anything about it and will never watch, but whoever did it knows what he’s liked for 40 years and said, “Just do that.”

The Wendy Choo gimmick is the worst gimmick in the history of NXT, WWE, WWF, WWWF and CWC. Prove me wrong.
