NXT TakeOver: Phoenix was a night full of high spots and stiff shots. The night ended with Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano both raising up their own championship titles. Then when the show went off the air things broke loose backstage.

Triple H started off his post-TakeOver Q&A by addressing a backstage altercation that took place between Aleister Black, Velveteen Dream, and Ricochet against Adam Cole, Tommaso Ciampa, and Johnny Gargano.

“Yeah, things got a little heated. Not on the air on the Network, not part of the TakeOver event. Things got a little bit heated, but everything’s under control now.”

“A lot of competitive people, tempers boiled over… but we’ll settle it all.”

It was said that Triple H had to step in and break up this backstage altercation. We will keep you updated on this on-going story here at Ringside News, although since they brought it up during the social media Q&A it’s very likely kayfabe.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
