Tommaso Ciampa

Earlier today it was revealed that Tommaso Ciampa had been injured and would require neck surgery. The NXT Champion is currently involved in the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic and had reformed DIY prior to the news.

Sadly, whatever match we were going to get at the upcoming NXT TakeOver event seems to have been put on the shelf. The WWE finally confirmed the news today, stating that the Psycho Killer will undergo anterior cervical fusion tomorrow. Below is the company’s official statement.

    There seems to be a trend that once you get called up to the main roster from NXT you’re destined to be injured within the first 3mos

    I really do not get what is going on here. Reports seem to suggest he had the neck injury for some time now, yet WWE still called him up and put him in this tournament.
    If it is true that it is something he already had, then why the hell was he just not sent to get it fixed before putting him in these high profile angles?
    We can only assume the sudden nature of his operation is that he has further aggravated it, but going on previous experience with the likes of Edge & Paige, surely common sense would be to nip it in the bud before it gets this bad.

    GOOD. They can both kiss my *SS.

    Too bad this had to happen after he got called up. Not to mention the fact that with Ciampa being out of commission WWE seems to have put the breaks on Gargano as well.
