Tommaso Ciampa was NXT Champion when he was taken out of action due to a neck injury. It was awful timing because he was just called up to the main roster at the time as well.
Ciampa had surgery and it was a heartbreaking thing to hear him talk about. However, it seems like he has good news to report today.
The Sicilian Psychopath updated fans to let us know that he just saw his doctor and the news is not good… it’s great. Hopefully, this is a sign that he’ll be back sooner than we initially expected.
Got the results to my 2 month follow up x-ray.
Doc said “this doesn’t look good…it looks great”.
Happy Birthday to The Greatest Sports Entertainer of All Time#PartMan #PartWolverine #AllBlackheart
Ciampa was injured with surgery scheduled before his main roster call-up. He was NXT Champion at the time and set to defend his title at NXT TakeOver: New York. He was also pulled from NXT house shows to allow him time to recover a little bit too.
However, that match at TakeOver didn’t happen because he was called up to the main roster and pulled from action weeks later after his injury was accelerated.
