British actor Tom Hiddleston has taken the world by storm with Loki. Portraying a Norse god is no effortless task, but Hiddlestone’s performance has drawn many eyes to the show. The story revolves around the God of Mischief fixes an alternate timeline he created to stop a catastrophic event.

According to Nielsen Media Research, the show’s premiere racked up 731 million minutes of viewing. This feat places at the top of the Marvel web-series streaming on Disney+. To no one’s surprise, Johnny Gargano is one contributor to the 731 million minutes viewing figure. Speaking to SK Wrestling‘s Rick Ucchino, he put forward his theory for the season finale.

“Oh boy, that’s tough, man. There’s so many good theories around and everyone wants it to be Kang, but the way the story is going it makes sense for it to be kind of a King Loki,” said the first ever NXT Triple Crown Champion.

“If you want to dive into the dynamic of like- he didn’t change- he just wanted to take control of everything. That does make sense for like the journey he’s been going on. Where he would face the different versions of himself that didn’t meet Sylvie. Obviously I would like it to be Kang as well, but I guess story wise another version of Loki will make sense.”

After years as a babyface, Johnny Gargano turned heel in 2020. Betraying his former partner Tommaso Ciampa, Gargano went on an excellent heel run that saw him win the NXT North American Champion and form his own faction, The Way. This week, Gargano can add another title to his collection: the NXT Championship.

In the opposite corner is one of the most imposing figures in NXT, the reigning NXT Champion, Karrion Kross. Kross has been on a rampage since debuting in NXT, beating the likes of Ciampa, Dominik Dijakovic, Keith Lee, Finn Balor and most recently, made Kyle O’Reilly pass out. However, he hasn’t beaten the heart and soul of NXT, Johnny Wrestling.

Rumors about Kross’ main roster call-up could mean Johnny Gargano can become a two-time NXT Champion. But with Samoa Joe as the referee, the match can swing in any wrestler’s favor. Tune into NXT to check out who will walk out of the CWC as NXT Champion.
