The night that many had envisioned to be the crowning moment of Johnny Gargano and Tomasso Ciampa, collectively known as DIY did not end the way they wanted and saw a different behavior from Ciampa than usual.

The duo earned the right to challenge the new WWE World Tag Team Champions and their friends, R-Truth and The Miz last week with the match going down between the two teams on tonight’s edition of Monday Night RAW.

The classic display of tag team wrestling by DIY was in full force in Columbus, Ohio, however, it was not enough to put down The Awesome Truth who managed to execute a spectacular Truth Crushing Finale on Gargano to retain their titles. As the champions stood tall, Johnny Wrestling shook their hand in respect, but Ciampa chose to walk away, refusing to acknowledge the victors in an act of disrespect.

In an exclusive with WWE released on X, WWE correspondent Jackie Redmond spoke with the duo regarding their loss. She further asked about their next goal, which enraged Ciampa who claimed that tonight was the next step and winning the tag titles was the next step before storming off and not giving a definitive answer for his actions. Johnny saw his partner’s actions and stated that he was a bit emotional and took the loss too hard.


“This was the next step, becoming the World tag team champions was the next step, there is no next step.”

While it was not DIY’s night in Ohio, things are surely looking to take an interesting turn in the tag team division. We will have to wait and see what happens next.
