In an electrifying night of professional wrestling, the DIY tag team, comprised of Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa, made a statement-making debut on WWE's flagship show, "Monday Night Raw." The duo notched an emphatic win against Giovanni Vinci and Ludwig Kaiser, signaling a new era for DIY.
"Tonight was just the beginning," declared Gargano on social media, sparking widespread excitement among fans and industry insiders alike. DIY's appearance on "Raw" is more than a run-of-the-mill roster addition. It's a defining moment for the duo, who began their WWE journey together back in 2016.
The unique trajectory of their careers had them questioning what a main roster slot would mean for them. "Our journey has been anything but conventional," Gargano reflected. "But we've always known we have something special. Those early moments, those trials and tribulations, are carried with us into every match."
DIY's Official Return
Although Gargano and Ciampa had previously teamed up during brief main roster appearances in 2019, they were not officially recognized as DIY.
With this week's victory, WWE appears to have fully committed to the DIY brand—a move that comes as no surprise to long-term followers of the duo's work. Fans haven't seen them collaborate like this since a "WWE NXT" live event in 2020, and the reunion has been a highly anticipated event.
DIY's legacy as former NXT Tag Team Champions has been sealed by their unforgettable bouts against tag team titans like American Alpha and The Revival. They also gained a massive social media following through their viral 'Glorious Bomb' videos.
As they transition to the main roster, DIY aims to harness this history, and perhaps even evolve their repertoire to include new signature moves or strategies. "We're ready to take this to the next level," stated Ciampa in a recent interview, adding a new layer of intrigue to their main roster journey.
The reformation of DIY on WWE's main stage marks a significant milestone not just for Gargano and Ciampa, but for the WWE Universe as a whole. As the tag team division continues to heat up, all eyes will undoubtedly be on DIY to see what magic they will conjure next. After all, as Gargano himself has assured us, this is just the beginning.
