Since Johnny Gargano and Candice LeRae joined forces on TV and eventually created The Way, the group have gone on to become arguably the most prominent group on NXT.
After Gargano aligned in early 2020, the ‘power-couple’ later recruited their ‘children’ Austin Theory and Indi Hartwell to complete the collective. Since the group’s formation, Gargano has held the North American Title on three occasions while LeRae and Hartwell are the current NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions.
More recently, the couple have been attempting steer their TV ‘child’ Hartwell away from the affections of Dexter Lumis.
On the August 3rd episode of the black and gold brand, Gargano lost a ‘Love Her or Leave Her’ match to Lumis. With victory, Lumis and Hartwell were free to pursue their relationship.
On the most recent edition of NXT, LeRae followed the couple to a restaurant in an effort to spy on their date. However, the Poison Pixie was discovered before the appetisers arrived. But the couple had one more trick up their sleeve with Gargano posing as a waiter, hitting Lumis in the face with a cake.
Everyone at Inside The Ropes would like to send their congratulations to the happy couple.
