Doctors refuse to release Johnny Gargano’s medical status following ambush by Tommaso Ciampa
Johnny Gargano is believed to be suffering from neck and back problems as a result of last night’s ambush by his former tag team partner and friend, Tommaso Ciampa, at NXT TakeOver: Chicago, according to WWE.com sources.
The full extent of Gargano’s injuries, however, is currently unknown, as the former NXT Tag Team Champion refuses to talk to anyone following the harrowing aftermath of TakeOver’s Ladder Match main event.
Without Gargano’s consent, doctors cannot release his full medical status, WWE.com confirmed.
Ciampa blindsided his former #DIY partner after their loss to NXT Tag Team Champions The Authors of Pain. In addition to running Gargano face-first into an LED screen, Ciampa launched Gargano neck- and back-first off the announce table through a production staging area.
The NXT Universe in Allstate Arena witnessed medical personnel strapping Gargano to a stretcher, and footage of Gargano being loaded into an ambulance surfaced later in the night.
WWE.com will provide more updates on the situation as they become available.
