During Wednesday night's set of WWE NXT television tapings, it was determined that Andrade "Cien" Almas will defend the NXT Championship against Johnny Gargano at January's NXT TakeOver: Philadelphia event.
Gargano became the new number-one contender for the title by defeating Killian Dain, Lars Sullivan, and Aleister Black in a Fatal 4 Way Match during the tapings. The match was set up through a series of singles matches after it was determined that former champion Drew McIntyre would be unable to compete at TakeOver: Philadelphia due to injury.
