The first-ever WWE Speed Champion will be crowned on the next episode of the web series.

Ricochet and Johnny Gargano will meet in the finals of a tournament that WWE has hosted over the past few weeks to find the first champion for their unique new show.

Speed is a show which features WWE matchups with a time limit of three minutes. The quick matchups fittingly air exclusively on social media platform X (formerly known as Twitter), taking place mid-day throughout the week.

Gargano overcame Bronson Reed on Wednesday’s episode of Speed to get into the tournament finals. Ricochet previously beat JD McDonagh in the semi-finals to secure his championship appearance. Earlier in the bracket, Gargano beat Angel and Ricochet earned a win against Dragon Lee.

The title match, which has already been taped, will air at noon Eastern time on Friday.
