After months of anticipation, the rumors and reports surrounding Tommaso Ciampa's comeback from hip surgery finally materialized on June 19. The two-time NXT champion made a resounding statement as he reclaimed his iconic "No One Will Survive" theme and severed ties with his previous partner, The Miz, by swiftly defeating the A-Lister in less than five minutes.
While Ciampa's recent appearances on television didn't offer any hints about the persistent rumor of a reunion with his former #DIY tag team partner, Johnny Gargano, a subtle nod to their alliance emerged in a recent walking-and-talking promo shared on social media during Raw.
The Blackheart cunningly weaved the team's name into his passionate address, demonstrating a potential longing for their partnership.
Ciampa's Ambitious Quest for WWE Domination
In the promo, Ciampa expressed his delight at being back in the ring and in front of the camera after a nine-month hiatus.
He acknowledged Mike's intention to answer Seth Rollins' open challenge but declared his aspirations to acquire Seth's gold, passionately exclaiming his desire for success across all WWE platforms. From Monday Night Raw to SmackDown, premium live events, Money in the Bank, SummerSlam, Survivor Series, and the Royal Rumble, Ciampa asserted his determination to make a mark in every aspect of the industry.
He spoke of his eagerness to start a Royal Rumble and entered at number 30, leading to WrestleMania as the main event, becoming a household name and captivating audiences worldwide. Reflecting on his previous stint on Monday Night Raw, he acknowledged his mistakes, emphasizing the need to take matters into his own hands to achieve perfection.
Johnny Gargano, Ciampa's former partner, has also alluded to their past team while aligning himself with The Way on Raw this year. Although Gargano was absent from the Raw episode in his hometown of Cleveland, the signs of an impending reunion between him and Ciampa are growing stronger.
The exact timeline of their reunion remains uncertain, but fans eagerly await their on-screen reunion, eager to witness the sparks reignite between these two dynamic performers. The return of Tommaso Ciampa not only marked a triumphant comeback from injury but also teased the potential resurgence of one of NXT's most beloved tag teams.
