Johnny Gargano teased some awesome gear for tonight's NXT TakeOver: In Your House, and man did it deliver. I had guessed it had something to do with ThunderCats and Magneto previously, and yeah, I couldn't have been more off the mark. What it ended up being was an homage to the Kliq, with each member of The Way bringing a Kliq member to life in amazing fashion. As you can see in the image below, the gear came out brilliantly, and they even found a role for Pawdme!
Johnny represented Shawn Michaels, while Candice LeRae was clad in Sean Waltman-style gear. Meanwhile, Indi Hartwell was doing her best Razor Ramon impression, and Austin Theory was in full Diesel form.

Last but certainly not least was Pawdme, who represented Triple H, and the NXT boss got a kick out of it on social media.
Johnny revealed the gear on Twitter with the caption "When you set out to do something that no one else can do.. the first thing you do is you look to your blood.. you look to your buddies.. you look to your friends.. you look.. to The Way! #LeadersOfTheNewGeneration #HouseOfWay #Kliq #NXTTakeOver"
