Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano brawled throughout the Performance Center

Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano somehow found a way to reach a new level of violence that was previously untapped even in their own barbaric history.

With Gargano having promised they’d do things “his way,” Ciampa took to the ring until Gargano interrupted him with a message on the video screen. But Ciampa wasted little time before hunting down his former tag team partner’s location, where the two proceeded to brawl throughout the Performance Center, leaving complete chaos in their wake, from broken weightlifting mirrors to shattered glass windows and destroyed office equipment.

Their melee finally reached a crescendo, concluding only when they couldn’t fight anymore following Ciampa’s a jaw-dropping Air Raid Crash from the stage perch through the announce table below.
