Former NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa recently underwent hip surgery. He has been away from programming since September 17 WWE live event when he faced Bobby Lashley. He was aligned with The Miz on WWE TV, helping him trying to escape the wrath of Dexter Lumis. However, he was abruptly taken off of the programming.
Tommaso Ciampa opens up on his recovery
Taking to Instagram, Ciampa revealed that he’s on the road to recovery after undergoing surgery on his hip labrum.
The road to recovery begins. It’s a familiar road. Almost too familiar.
Special thanks to Dr Emblom and his team for taking such incredible care of me. Thanks to the WWE medical team for once again putting me back together. And thanks to my “nurses” at home for always giving me perspective.
It took awhile but we finally found the cause to all of that glute/SI/back pain. A hip labrum that “looked like shredded cheese” according to my wife, who watched the surgery.
“But it ain’t about how hard ya hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.” – Rocky Balboa —

Fans are now wondering how long Ciampa will be sidelined. Ciampa has previously missed time with ACL and neck injuries. We will have to see when he makes his return. Meanwhile, The Miz will have to deal with his issues with Dexter Lumis alone.
