Two stipulations revealed for Cole vs. Gargano at TakeOver: Toronto


Two of the stipulations have been revealed for Adam Cole and Johnny Gargano's two-out-of-three falls match at NXT TakeOver: Toronto.

Cole is defending his NXT Championship against Gargano at the SummerSlam weekend special. In storyline, Gargano is picking the stipulation for one of the falls, Cole is picking the stipulation for the other, and NXT general manager William Regal will choose the stipulation if they go to a third fall.

Promos from Gargano and Cole aired on this week's episode of NXT television. Gargano announced that he's picking a street fight for his stipulation, and Cole chose a normal one-on-one wrestling match for his stipulation. Cole said that's the type of match he defeated Gargano in at TakeOver XXV and in the first fall of their match at TakeOver: New York. Cole said Gargano won't be able to call himself "Johnny Wrestling" after Toronto.

Regal's stipulation has yet to be announced.

TakeOver: Toronto is taking place at the Scotiabank Arena on Saturday, August 10. This week's NXT TV episode also included the announcement that Velveteen Dream will defend the North American Championship against Roderick Strong and Pete Dunne in a triple threat match at TakeOver. Kyle O'Reilly & Bobby Fish will challenge for The Street Profits' NXT Tag Team titles.
