As countless amounts of people have pointed out this week, Monday Night Raw really isn't going through its best spell ever at the moment.

The lack of Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman have showed the lack of depth on the red brand, with far more entertaining goings on occurring over at SmackDown Live with their wealth of talent.

Undebatable though is the fact that the best action comes on a Wednesday night when the WWE Network broadcasts NXT.

You're guaranteed solid character work, great feuds and even better wrestling, that culminates in a special event once every two months or so.

And as shown by the epic NXT TakeOver: War Games 2 on Survivor Series weekend, the brand showcases as close to five-star matches as you're ever likely to see under the WWE banner.

There's one man to thank for NXT being so entertaining - Triple H - who is the brainchild of the independent-like show.

But the brand just keeps on giving, and last night at their most recent block of tapings, two very popular superstars re-united [spoilers are included from this point forward, so read on at your discretion].

After a brilliant storyline where NXT GM William Regal tried to identify who attacked former champion Aleister Black to put him out of commission, ultimate nice-guy Johnny Gargano was outed as the antagonist - turning heel in the process.

Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano have been involved in one of the hottest feuds in all of WWE this year.

Gargano was universally-loved, but his inability to wrangle the NXT title from his former partner Tommaso Ciampa just ate away at him.

Black defeated Gargano at War Games 2, and were placed in a Steel Cage match at the tapings last night, which should air on the Network in around three to four weeks time.

But whilst the Cage is designed to keep superstars in, Ciampa managed to find his way inside the structure - and what happened next was shocking.

Both Gargano and Ciampa executed their former DIY finisher on the stricken Black, giving Gargano the win and hinting at a reunion - although on the darker side this time.

Where does it go from here? Black should surely get a shot at Ciampa at the next TakeOver, and you can only assume that the presumed re-pairing of DIY will not last forever.

The feud has been going on for a year and a half now, but if there's one man to trust though when it comes to this storyline - it's Triple H.
