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. Ciampa continues to go through a rigorous rehabilitation regime after surgery. Now it appears he gave fans yet another update on his road to recovery ahead of his in-ring return.

Ciampa was in the middle of building his momentum on Monday Night RAW when a nagging injury forced him to take a break from in-ring competition. The former NXT Champion had successful surgery in October 2022.

As previously reported, his hip injury had been bothering him for nearly year before Tommaso Ciampa underwent surgery. Naturally, fans have been wondering when he would make his in-ring return.

The former NXT Champion took to his Instagram and uploaded a photo of himself looking incredibly ripped. Ciampa revealed that he is the heaviest he has been in 10 years but also much leaner compared to back then.


Little post workout check in. This is the heaviest I’ve been in 10 years. But much leaner than I was back then. I just completed my third meso cycle using the RP Hypertrophy App. Stronger and bigger than ever before. Plus, well fed and incredible recovery. Dialed in. @rpstrength 🖤

WWE is also making plans for Tommaso Ciampa’s return. The Sicilian Psychopath was in a feud with Bobby Lashley over the United States Championship the last time they shared the ring. We’ll have to see when Ciampa will return to WWE television.
