Tommaso Ciampa is currently the NXT Champion and it was a very surprising event when he pulled down the gold. But to some fans who know Ciampa’s reputation, especially considering putting himself over or being anything but a nasty heel, it’s rather surprising that WWE is finally putting out a Tommaso Ciampa t-shirt.

Ciampa has had threads before officially licensed by WWE, but it was while he was teamed with Johnny Gargano. There have been attempts to put out The Black Heart’s merch before, but Ciampa has always squashed those ideas.

Now WWE Shop went ahead and just put out a t-shirt and it’s a pretty simple design, but it does the job. The parody of an American flag with Ciampa’s name above it might represent a new time in NXT where they are under the United States Of Tommaso, but then again, only time will tell how long he holds that NXT Title since he is set to defend it against Johnny Gargano at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn IV on Saturday night.

So be looking for the Ciampa crowds in the shirt for fans who love supported the hated heel and possibly the best bad guy in WWE right now.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
