Tommaso Ciampa Will Never Hold An Open Challenge For NXT Championship


Last night on Raw, WWE Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins defended his title in an open challenge, a concept that doesn’t seem too appealing to NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa. Ciampa caught win of Rollins’ open challenge on Twitter, and instead of teasing to answer the call the way many others did, Ciampa took a different route.

Noting that the likes of Rollins and John Cena have held open challenges before, Ciampa said you’d never see him participating in something like an open challenge while he’s NXT World Champion. He dubbed the move a “participation award”:

“Cena had the US Title Open Challenge. Rollins has the IC Title Open Challenge. CIAMPA does not, nor will he ever, offer an NXT Title Open Challenge. My NXT Title is the most coveted Title in sports entertainment. You want a shot at The Champ, earn it.
