NXT Tag Team Champion
Tommaso Ciampa: Bio
Tommaso Ciampa is the type of Superstar you should keep an eye on. Not just because he’s talented, but because he’ll stab you in the back when you’re not looking.
A well-traveled veteran of the independent scene, Ciampa made his mark in WWE NXT alongside Johnny Gargano. United as #DIY, the duo bested The Revival in a 2-out-of-3 Falls Match at NXT TakeOver: Toronto — voted NXT’s Match of the Year — to win the NXT Tag Team Championship.
Ciampa & Gargano became WWE NXT’s most loved tandem, but things fell apart after they lost the titles to The Authors of Pain. Following repeated failed attempts to regain the championships, Ciampa finally snapped after a Ladder Match loss at NXT TakeOver: Chicago and attacked Gargano in a harrowing assault. A leg injury suffered by Ciampa during that match took him out action for the remainder of 2017. He made a shocking return in January 2018 at TakeOver: Philadelphia, ambushing Gargano with a crutch after Johnny Wrestling’s heartbreaking loss to NXT Champion Andrade “Cien” Almas.
With Ciampa back in the fold in NXT, no one — especially Gargano — is safe.
