Tommaso Ciampa was one of the highlights of NXT throughout the late 2010s. He became the lifeblood of NXT alongside Johnny Gargano, as their rivalry became must-see television. He is still in regular contact with Gargano as well.

Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano started their NXT careers together, as they were known as Team DIY. They saw great success as a tag team but found even more success as rivals.

Gargano would eventually leave WWE last year and since then, fans wondered whether Ciampa was still in touch with Gargano. While speaking on El Brunch de WWE, Tommaso Ciampa revealed that he is still in regular contact with Johnny Gargano.

“I still see him. I miss sharing the locker room with him,” Ciampa said. “Honestly, that was a big part too of going to RAW. That NXT locker room with all my best friends, they all left, one at a time. I know more people and more of my friends are on RAW and SmackDown than there are in NXT, so I miss him from that standpoint. I miss a lot of guys from a work standpoint. But that’s just part of the game.


You’re with people every day for six months or a year and then all of a sudden, different brands or promotions or companies. So it’s just part of it. We live 10 minutes away from each other and we still see each other so I don’t miss him too much.”

Tommaso Ciampa also wants a piece of AJ Styles on Monday Night RAW. Ciampa is currently feuding with Mustafa Ali on the red brand. We’ll have to see what the future holds for Ciampa.
