Tommaso Ciampa Teases Leaving WWE NXT 2.0 After This Week’s Episode


Tommaso Ciampa’s days in NXT 2.0 may be over after suffering a defeat to Dolph Ziggler on this week’s episode.

Ziggler got the win thanks to an assist from Robert Roode and will challenge NXT Champion Bron Breakker at NXT Stand and Deliver.


After the show, Ciampa spoke candidly about his career in a speech many believe was a goodbye address before moving to the main roster:

“I promised myself I wouldn’t talk riding high from emotions, sometimes I lose myself a little. But dammit, if having my neck getting beat to hell by Dolph Ziggler tonight didn’t remind me of my life. What I’ve been through to stand in this ring and what it means to be to be part of NXT and hear you people chanting, “NXT!” with all the damn passion you have in existence.

“I tell you this from the bottom of my soul, I love you. I love this place. I thank you! Together, forever, we are NXT!”

Ciampa’s feud with Ziggler and Roode has been part of Raw’s programming, with the Blackheart teaming with Finn Balor this week to defeat the pair. The two-time former NXT Champion had his official main roster debut on the February 18, 2019, RAW, where he and Johnny Gargano defeated The Revival (aka FTR).He has also made appearances on WWE Main Event.
