The regular season begins with one of our most highly requested matches: a five star NXT instant classic that sees NXT Champion Andrade 'Cien' Almas (with the ever present Zelena Vega) defending his gold against the ultra charismatic white meat babyface challenger, Johhny Gargano (née Wrestling).
In the city of brotherly love, will Johnny Wrestling manage to complete his Rocky story? And if so will that story be more like Rocky I where the victory comes in simply showing up and giving it your all? Or the more satisfying yet far less emotionally complex Rocky's 2-4 where it's about Rocky winning the big one in the end?
Either way, we'll find out with the help of concept artist and illustrator Dave Alegre. (@scrotumnose)
