Ciampa Attacks Former Teammate As NXT Philly Ends
Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano have been two of the biggest "underground" pro wrestlers for nearly a decade. They have been in the WWE world for a few years now, on the NXT brand.
But after their tag team exploded, both dealt with some injury issues, and there's been an eventual showdown brewing between the two. Last night, that upcoming showdown got some spice added to it.
After Johnny Gargano failed to capture the NXT Championship, Tommaso Ciampa showed up to smash a crutch against Gargano. The presentation was great, as the "copy-write signature" came up on the screen, which usually signals the end of a WWE broadcast, Ciampa showed up out of nowhere and buried the crutch into Gagano's back.
It was set up perfectly, and executed perfectly, which really builds for what could be the rivalry of the year. Which is definitely something I'm looking forward, and I'm sure I'm not alone.
