Tommaso Ciampa is back!

Adam Cole can’t celebrate in peace.

After successfully retaining his title early in the night, he had to deal with Finn Bálor returning right after and telling him he’s back in NXT.

Then at the end of the night, after his boys Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish bested the Street Profits to retain their titles in an amazing match, Cole walked out to the stage to congratulate his boys in the ring.

Once again his was interrupted.

This time by returning former NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa!

Ciampa never lost his title but instead had to relinquish it before his scheduled big final match against Johnny Gargano due to a neck injury requiring a spinal fusion. This was back in April.

Because Ciampa couldn’t compete, NXT booked Gargano and Cole in a 2 out of 3 falls match for the vacant title. Gargano won the title but lost it to Cole on the next TakeOver.

Now, the Sicilian Psychopath is back with eyes on his baby Goldie.

With Ciampa and Bálor back in NXT, and likely Matt Riddle upset about how he lost tonight, Adam Cole has got a lot of people he’s got to fend off if he wants to hold onto that title.
