"I just left Johnny's house, and I can't hold this in anymore. Johnny's out of Takeover. Johnny will not be there, and it's all because of you, Kushida. I always have a smile on my face, but it's time to be serious. I'm not playing around. Tomorrow night on NXT, Kushida, you will pay," said Theory.

With NXT Takeover: Vengeance Day days away, WWE has yet to confirm the news officially, but their NXT account tweeted the following.

There was also no official clarification as to why Gargano was sidelined, or if Theory and Kushida are scheduled for an actual match on Wednesday's NXT, but Fightful will keep you posted.
