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.
