One of the best things about NXT is the long, tangled relationship between Johnny Gargano & Tommaso Ciampa.
They joined NXT years ago as a team in the Dusty Classic, eventually winning the tag titles down the line. Then Ciampa betrayed Gargano and it became a blood feud. It was a feud that was never fully realized due to Ciampa’s career threatening injury. Said injury is what likely allowed both men to move past it.
We’ve never really gotten a full reunion. Complicated histories be complicated and all.
So it was very cool to see Johnny Gargano save Tommaso Ciampa from a 4 on 1 Undisputed ERA beat down.
But it looks like that wasn’t just that. Because as soon as that happened, a challenge came from a surprising source on Twitter:
See @JohnnyGargano and @NXTCiampa are mates again @Tyler_Bate...— Trent Seven (@trentseven) January 16, 2020
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if they could stay mates long enough to fight us?
Moustache Mountain vs #DIY?
What do you say @RealKingRegal? Possibly #WorldsCollide?
A bit random, but why the hell not? This match will rule.
It’s not official just yet, but that reunion felt a bit out of nowhere (since Gargano is actually feuding with Finn Bálor) and Trent wouldn’t have tweeted it otherwise.
We’ll update y’all when it’s official, but I think it’s safe to get pumped for it.
Update: There it is.
