Cole vs. Gargano stipulation match official for NXT TakeOver: Toronto

Adam Cole and Johnny Gargano will be facing off in a two-out-of-three falls match with a few added stipulations at NXT TakeOver: Toronto.

WWE has announced that Cole will defend his NXT Championship against Gargano at the SummerSlam weekend TakeOver event. In storyline, Gargano will pick a stipulation for one of the falls and Cole will pick a stipulation for the other. If it goes to a third fall, William Regal will pick the last stipulation.

The stipulations for the match have yet to be revealed.

After Tommaso Ciampa had to vacate the title due to injury, Gargano defeated Cole in a two-out-of-three falls match at TakeOver: New York this April to become NXT Champion. Cole then won the title from Gargano by defeating him at TakeOver XXV in June.

Cole vs. Gargano at TakeOver: Toronto is being hyped as a rubber match that will settle their rivalry.

On the episode of NXT television that aired this week, Gargano returned and beat down Cole in the show-closing angle. He attacked Cole all around the Full Sail arena, with Gargano then putting Cole in the Gargano Escape back in the ring. 

The Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Ontario, Canada is hosting TakeOver: Toronto on Saturday, August 10.
