As soon as the match started it was very clear that the Chicago fans were firmly behind Team DIY and they wanted to see them walk out of the event with the gold in their hands.

It was only a couple days ago that he looked to have a nasty landing on a running knee that had many anxious he may not be able to compete alongside his partner Johnny Gargano in their ladder match against the Authors of Pain. Of course, NXT TakeOver: Chicago has already been dealt one injury blow with Ember Moon having to be pulled from the show due to injuries and they will be hoping to avoid another change to a top match on the card if they can help it. If he is ruled out it could leave a big hole in the card, as the tag team ladder match is lined up to be one of the highlights of the card on Saturday night in Chicago. They followed up with the Super Collider then grabbed the belts for the win. Ciampa would go on to lay Gargano out with a sick knee to the head and put him through tables.

As Triple H also noted, it will now be down to the NXT medical team to decide whether Ciampa is fit to join Gargano in the match. Ciampa picked Gargano up then slammed him off the table and the stage into some crates on the ground below as the show ended.
