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. After several months away from the ring, he finally came back on RAW this week and it appears Ciampa broke his silence after his 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 seen on this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW, Tommaso Ciampa made his shocking return and immediately beat down The Miz, who used to be his partner prior to his injury.
While speaking during a backstage interview after his return, Tommaso Ciampa cut a passionate promo to the camera about exactly what his goals were back in WWE. He mentioned going after Seth Rollins’ World Heavyweight Title. Ciampa shared that he has had 200+ days to reflect on his mistakes from the last time he was on Monday Night Raw, this time he is there to take it all.
It feels good, I should say it feels great to be back. Nine months. Nine months it’s been since I walked out in front of those people, nine months since I’ve stood here in front of this camera. Mike [The Miz] went out there tonight, and he told everybody that he was here to answer Seth’s open challenge. Well, he’s not the only one who had that intention. Because I’ve had my eyes on Seth’s gold ever since the first day he laid his hands on it. You want to know what I want? You want to know what Tomasso Ciampa wants? I want it all. I want Monday Night Raw, I want SmackDown, I want every premium live event, I want Money in the Bank, I want the briefcase, I want SummerSlam, I want Survivor Series, I want the Royal Rumble.
I want to start one, I want to go to 30. I want to go to WrestleMania. I want to be the main event. I want to be the main attraction. I want to be the guy that everybody talks about. I want to be a household name. I want everybody all around the world to talk about Tommaso Ciampa. Because I’m that damn good. I’m that damn good on the microphone, I’m that damn good in the ring, and last time I was in WWE, last time I was on Monday Night Raw, I made a lot of mistakes that I had 275 days to think about every damn mistake that I made. Sometimes, if you want things right, you do it yourself
We will have to wait and see whether WWE will have something major planned for the Sicilian Psychopath, now that he is finally back on WWE television after a 9-month hiatus due to injury.
