In a surprising turn of events that left fans on the edge of their seats, the legendary WWE tag team DIY, consisting of Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa, is making a triumphant return to the ring after a near four-year hiatus.
The exciting announcement came following an unforgettable episode of Monday Night Raw on October 2nd, where Johnny Gargano marked his much-anticipated comeback to WWE television. Having been absent for several months, Gargano’s return was met with ecstatic cheers, but the crowd’s excitement reached fever pitch when he intervened to save his former tag team partner, Tommaso Ciampa, from a brutal beatdown at the hands of Imperium.
This unexpected reunion took place in Dallas, Texas, setting the stage for what promises to be an electrifying tag team bout.
Gargano's Resilient Victory
Gargano, displaying his trademark resilience and fighting spirit, squared off against Giovanni Vinci in a singles match, with Vinci operating under explicit instructions from Intercontinental Champion GUNTHER to neutralize Gargano.
With Ludwig Kaiser present at ringside to ensure the execution of these orders, the odds seemed stacked against Gargano. However, with Ciampa’s timely intervention, the duo managed to outsmart their opponents, leading Gargano to secure a well-deserved victory.
This monumental win has paved the way for a much-anticipated reunion, as WWE officials have confirmed that DIY will officially reassemble to face Vinci and Kaiser in a tag team match scheduled for the October 30th edition of Raw.
This marks DIY’s first tag team match since their memorable bout at Worlds Collide in January 2020, where they clinched a victory over Moustache Mountain. While Ciampa and Gargano have indeed joined forces in the ring since then, participating in the WarGames match in December 2021 that symbolically ended the black and gold era of NXT 2.0, their return as DIY in a regular tag team match has been eagerly awaited by fans worldwide.
Gargano’s return to WWE in September 2022, following a period of contract hiatus, has only heightened the anticipation, especially given that Triple H is now firmly at the helm of the company. As we eagerly await the 30th of October, the reunion of DIY not only marks a nostalgic moment for long-time WWE fans but also signifies a new chapter for Gargano and Ciampa, promising high-octane action and unforgettable moments in the squared circle. Make sure to tune in, as this is a tag team reunion you won’t want to miss!
