Update: Triple H showed up in the end with an amazing tribute of his own.
Original: Tommaso Ciampa is definitely one of the most established Superstars in all of NXT. He had been involved in many memorable matches and feuds with the likes of Johnny Gargano and others in the brand. He also paid tribute to Triple H during NXT Stand & Deliver.
Ciampa has accomplished everything there is to accomplish on the black and gold brand. In fact, many fans view him as the true last veteran of the old version of NXT.
Tommaso Ciampa was set to square off against Tony D’Angelo during the NXT Stand & Deliver event. Ciampa made his way to the ring and performed Triple H’s signature water spitting. He also posed in the ring just like how Shawn Michaels did.
Many fans also feel that this match will be Ciampa’s final match before he becomes a permanent part of the main roster. We’ll have to see if that turns out to be the case or not.
