WWE's wrestling community is abuzz with curiosity as Tommaso Ciampa, the former NXT Champion, takes to social media to express his concern over the whereabouts of his fellow wrestler and long-standing rival, Johnny Gargano.
Ciampa's cryptic yet playful approach involves sharing a faux "missing poster" online, inviting fans to join the search for the absent WWE star.
Ciampa's Playful Search Initiates
In a puzzling turn of events, Ciampa's social media feed now displays a conspicuous image of a "missing poster" that humorously describes Gargano's distinct features.
The poster humorously points out Gargano's possession of two eyes, a mane of luxurious hair, and a penchant for sporting "Marvel attire." The cherry on top: Ciampa is offering a reward of "dollar bucks" to whoever aids in the search.
The former champ's commitment to the gag is evident as he replaces his profile picture with the attention-grabbing poster. Notably, this quirky initiative appears to have been inspired by Ciampa's exchange with WWE talent Chelsea Green, as seen in his previous social media posts.
Concerns about Johnny Gargano's recent absence from WWE programming have echoed among fans, adding credence to Ciampa's humorous campaign. Gargano last graced the WWE ring on the May 15 episode of "WWE Raw," competing in a Battle Royal.
While his hiatus initially seemed to be linked to a shoulder injury, reports in July indicated he had fully recovered, engaging in two non-televised matches, the most recent being on July 30 at a WWE Supershow, where he faced off against Omos.
Interestingly, Gargano's wife, Candice LeRae, has made a resurgence on WWE television, embroiled in a storyline opposite Rhea Ripley. Ciampa and Gargano's history is a rollercoaster of partnership and rivalry. Their camaraderie as tag team partners was punctuated by intense feuds during their tenure in "WWE NXT." The duo's captivating journey saw them clinch the tag team championship and headline numerous TakeOver specials.
WWE has tantalizingly teased their reunion, but the much-anticipated event has yet to materialize. As Ciampa's lighthearted search for Gargano continues to entertain and bewilder fans, the wrestling world holds its breath for an eventual update on the missing WWE star.
Until then, enthusiasts can only speculate about the nature of Gargano's absence and the unfolding drama between these two iconic figures in WWE history.
