Tommaso Ciampa has been holding the role of NXT Champion for several weeks now, with the very famous athlete who until a few years ago worked in all the independent federations of the United States, who has gradually become one of the most followed and most acclaimed athletes in the third WWE roster, so much so that in the end he also became absolute champion several times.
In the last period, however, there would also have been a general coming and going from the rings of the Stamford-based company, between veterans who were released because they were now too old and too expensive for WWE and characters who instead preferred not to have their contract renewed, preferring instead the Khan family's All Elite Wrestling, like Bryan Danielson and Adam Cole.
In the last period, there is also enough concern for Johnny Gargano and Kyle O'Reilly, with both athletes having their contracts expiring and it is not known if they will be able to find a deal to stay with WWE or if they will migrate too.

Backstage news on Tommaso Ciampa
According to what was reported by the microphones of the well-known Fightful Select, Tommaso Ciampa's contract should be one of those that was automatically extended by the McMahon company due to the injury that occurred to the champion some time ago.
It is a common practice, the one that sees WWE automatically extend the contracts of its Superstars, once they are absent for a long period due to an injury. If this wrestler stays at home for six months, he will automatically have another six months of a contract upon his return, as has already happened several times with many other wrestlers.
In the last update session of the journalists of the well-known overseas podcast, we learn that: "We are currently told that Tommaso Ciampa is on the boat of those who have had their agreement extended due to a period of injury."
Ciampa, fresh off his victory over Bron Breakker at Halloween Havoc, was addressing the crowd when he was interrupted by Hayes and Trick Williams. The NXT North American Champion told Ciampa that it's not about him anymore, there’s a new school on the rise and he’s its leader.
Hayes believes he’s the real champion of NXT and, as long as he’s North American Champion, Ciampa should take a back seat.
