The card for NXT Takeover: New Orleans during WrestleMania weekend has been finalized. Takeover is shaping up to be a “show of the weekend” contender, especially with the accidental confirmation of one of the top matches on the card.
Over the weekend, WWE inadvertently posted the full match listing on Facebook. One of the contests, perhaps the one fans are most looking forward to, has yet to be announced by the company. The Facebook post was deleted, but it didn’t take long for fans to notice an “unsanctioned” match between Johnny Gargano vs. Tomasso Ciampa on the list.
Gargano and Ciampa have been feuding since Ciampa turned on his former parter last May back at NXT Takeover: Chicago. Ciampa had been working through an injury that ultimately required surgery to repair an ACL tear. Ciampa has been taunting Gargano ever since and even made a few surprise appearances since to deliver beatdowns on his former partner.
With that match set, here’s the final card for NXT Takeover: New Orleans on Saturday night, April 7th.

Andrade Cien Almas (c) vs Aleister Black
Johnny Gargano vs. Tomasso Ciampa
