NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa launched an attack on his next challenger last night.
After Bron Breakker defeated Roderick Strong in the main event of last night's NXT, Ciampa attacked Breakker as he was leaving the ring. Ciampa laid out Breakker by giving him Willow's Bell on top of the NXT Championship belt.
Ciampa said Breakker won the battle at WarGames, but the NXT Championship is the war. He welcomed Breakker back to the deep end and warned him that this is where the sharks swim.
WWE has yet to officially announce Ciampa and Breakker's title match. They each have a win against each other, with Ciampa retaining against Breakker at Halloween Havoc but being pinned by him in the men's WarGames match. Breakker issued a challenge to Ciampa on last week's post-WarGames edition of NXT, but Malcolm Bivens appeared instead and set up Breakker's match against Strong.
