Storyline dropped due to Tommaso Ciampa’s injury

Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano were arguably the greatest team in NXT and had many memorable matches until they were split up. They also had a fantastic feud in NXT following that, but that didn’t matter to Vince McMahon since he called them up to the main roster as a tag team.

Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that Johnny Gargano’s storyline on the main roster was scrapped due to Tommaso Ciampa’s injury.  It was said that Gargano might be sent back to NXT and possibly become the NXT Champion after Ciampa will have to relinquish the title since that was better suited for Gargano. We wonder what the plans for NXT TakeOver: New York will be now.

It was also said that Ciampa’s injury recovery time will be far too long of a break for any storyline for the NXT superstars once he makes his return. So we will have to wait and see what happens.

    Yo whoever writes these articles is obviously a huge tommaso ciampa fan. I am too but geez why is Wrestling-edge vicimaizing this guy? Lol “but that didn’t matter to Vince McMahon” “Ciampa has been dealing with a neck injury due to him having to prove himself”. When he won the NXT title Wrestling edge tried to claim he was the first to win the NXT tag team and world title I had to correct them in the comments that Neville was.

    The story I read was that they’d appear on all three brands until the superstar shakeup, at which point they’d all be permanently assigned to brands. Never saw anything about them going back to NXT.

    I thought we were being told before that these four new “call ups” would only be on the main roster until Mania, then would return to NXT as per normal. Now we are being told Gargano is being sent back, like this was not the plan we had already been told on this site, just a little earlier than planned.
