Shortly before coming to the ring for an instant classic with KUSHIDA, Johnny Gargano would have something taken from him. Dexter Lumis made sure Austin Theory could not get involved in the match, by kidnapping Theory. Indi Hartwell & Candice LeRae were sent to look for him, but no luck. The Way has not seen Theory since Sunday before that match, and tonight Gargano will look to find his lost friend.
Johnny Gargano Channels His Inner Liam Neeson On This Night
Gargano offered a 5k cash reward for information on his whereabouts… but knocked that down to 500$ soon after. He also prepared a statement for Lumis. A warning if you will.
“I don’t know who you are, I don’t know what you want. If you want ransom, I assure you I don’t have money. But what I do have is a very particular set of skills. Skills I’ve acquired over a very long career, skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you return Austin Theory now? That’ll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don’t, I will look for you. I will find you, and I will-” before he couldn’t read his own handwriting.
Gargano just wants his son back. This all sounds a bit familiar, doesn’t it?
Theory Was Found Safe!
During the tag team match of Candice LeRae & Indi Hartwell vs. Shotzi Blackheart & Ember Moon, Johnny Gargano would check out the status of a weird white van. This was last seen being used by Dexter Lumis! Gargano would rush off commentary to get into the van, and return later with his protege, who was apparently tied up… in his underwear.
It’s unclear what Dexter Lumis did to Theory, and what his motives were exactly. He was likely trying to help KUSHIDA out, but he’s also challenged for the NXT North American Championship before,and wants to be champion the same as anyone else.
Could Dexter Lumis be the next challenger for Johnny Gargano as NXT North American Champion? Let us know what you think in the comment section down below.
