Tommaso Cimapa won’t be losing the NXT title anytime soon for a very good reason

Tommaso Ciampa has been on a roll as NXT Champion, with him showing just how much of a vicious streak he has. At Takeover: WarGames, he faced the highly talented and charismatic Velveteen Dream for the NXT Championship. He would go on to defeat Dream and thus he is still the current champion.

Ciampa’s current title reign was discussed by Dave Meltzer onĀ Wrestling Observer Radio, where it was revealed that he won’t be losing his title anytime soon. Dave would go on to provide the reason.

He stated how the storyline between Gargano and Ciampa is that Campa can’t lose the title. This is due to Gargano being a babyface, but he became a heel as he was so obsessed with beating Ciampa for the title.

As soon as Ciampa no longer has the title, there would be no reason for Gargano to be a heel. So he has to keep the title no matter what. He mentioned how he had no idea in what way they would get out of this storyline but was sure they would find a way.

Whether or not we will be seeing Gargano face Ciampa for one final time is something we can only wait to find out.

    Gargano really needed to win this match. His lost Ciampa, he lost to Dream, and now he has to get over as a heel. Gargano needed to win in order to justify to himself his turn. Now, if Gargano comes out as a face next time we see him, then I’m okay with him losing here because it’s like he realized “well, that didn’t work”.

    I wouldn’t say it was garbage, but it was the weakest of the three, due in large part to it being the law of diminishing returns. Those two headlined three straight NXT shows. Had they spread them out, or done two back to back and then come back to it at Mania, that would have been better. You also have to remember that third match was supposed to be a triple threat and not a last man standing.

    First match was good. Second match was okay. Third match was fucking garbage.

    I am sorry but that made absolutely no sense. He is a babyface who is a heel? And can only be heel while Ciampa is champion? Ridiculous.
    If they want him to be a heel after Ciampa loses the title then they can continue that if they want, there is not need to “get out of it”.
    This is wrestling. And we see people change from one allegiance to another with no apparent reason, so why should this be any different?

    The fact Gargano lost last night made absolutely no sense if this is just a case of “he is a heel because Ciampa is champ”. How does this make him look strong in any way at all? He lost to Ciampa as a face, so if this was supposed to be him being tougher to go after Ciampa, then having him lose his first match since going “heel” makes it look like his change of attitude made him no tougher.

    Gargano is a really special talent. Whoever he’s having a match with is going to have match of the night. I thought maybe the Gargano-Ciampa matches were so good because the two of them have good chemistry, and they do, but Gargano had the best match of the night last night against Black and while the Ciampa-Dream match was very good, it wasn’t as good as the Gargano match. The Gargano-Almas match was also an incredible match. It’s a shame that Gargano isn’t a bigger guy and that WWE doesn’t let guys go on the main roster the way they do in NXT because Gargano could really have some great matches on the main roster against guys like Rollins, Styles, and Bryan, but because he’s a smaller guy, I’m not sure he’ll ever be given the chance to have a great match with any of those guys. It bodes very well for 205 Live if they want to stick him and Ciampa on there, but they want flippy guys on 205 Live and those two don’t do flippy moves.

    The storyline is slightly annoying. Ciampa in regards please s arguably a generic Brock Lesnar of whom may not loose the title anytime soon because Roman is “out of action” and Braun has supposed “backstage heat”.
