Tommaso Ciampa had to undergo neck surgery and has been making great progress in rehabilitation, on way to making his in-ring return. However, he is not completely cleared to wrestle yet.
According to a report by Brad Shepard, Ciampa is expected to make his return in the middle of September. September 18th is a significant date for NXT as it will be making its debut on the USA Network.
According to a source in #WWE, @ProjectCiampa may not see action until mid-September. As I previously reported, he looks good, they’re just being cautious with him.
This is certainly good news as Ciapma will be back right in time for NXT’s debut on the USA Network. We will keep you updated on Ciampa’s return status once we learn more.
