Tommaso Ciampa was certainly one of the best things about NXT throughout his run in the developmental brand. He was part of solid feuds, especially with his eternal friend/rival Johnny Gargano.

The former NXT Champion has accomplished everything there is to accomplish on NXT. Ciampa had previously stated that he would retire from pro wrestling if he was ever called up to the main roster due to the hectic schedule.

While speaking to WrestleRant, Ciampa opened up about his move from NXT to the main roster, calling the timing of it perfect.

For me with wrestling, it’s the process is what I’ve always loved,” Tommaso Ciampa said. “I love that everybody has their individual stories. I love that I’ve had over 18 years to create my own story. And I liked that this is a big part of it. Like just the timing of the main roster was perfect. Doing SummerSlam on the main roster is far different than doing it with NXT Takeovers. It’s been a blast this week.”


Ciampa has been aligned with The Miz over the past few months on Monday Night RAW. We’ll have to see what’s next in store for him.
