Weeks back, Karrion Kross attacked Tommaso Ciampa from behind. This was prior to his official introduction/badass entrance.
It was only a matter of time that Ciampa was going to respond.
That response was tonight. After Kross squashed another talent with brutal efficiency, Tommaso made his way and introduced himself to Karrion, who he made sure to inform was standing in his ring.
There were no blows thrown. The men shared the ring but it was just for Ciampa to let his new foe know that they’ll be fighting one on one at TakeOver: In Your House on June 7.
Ciampa feels like the perfect first opponent for the newcomer Kross. He is bulletproof enough that he can take a loss and give Kross a marquee win during his rollout. Plus both men are cut from the same cloth. Tommaso is no true blue babyface. They’re both killers.
This should be quite the treat.
