Aleister Black has officially been removed from his triple threat NXT TakeOver match against Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano after he suffered an injury to his crotch at an NXT house show a couple of weeks ago.
The match will now be Tommaso Ciampa defending the NXT Championship against Johnny Gargano one on one in a Last Man Standing match.

NXT wrote Black out of the match last night by doing an angle where he was mysteriously attacked in the parking lot. WWE has now released “new footage,” showing lots of NXT wrestlers at the scene of the crime to further the “Who Attacked Aleister Black?” angle.
