Several readers sent word about a tweet sent out by singer Hope Vista. She revealed that she would be recording the theme song for Johnny Gargano. Interestingly, she did not mention Tommaso Ciampa. She wrote, “Tomorrow I am recording lead vocals for WWE star @JohnnyGargano‘s theme for when he enters the ring. Shall be interesting.”
The wording (with Ciampa’s name excluded) led to rampant speculation from fans on social media thinking that the team would split up after this Saturday’s NXT Takeover: Chicago. It’s clear that #DIY’s time in NXT is winding down but you’d think that they’d move up to the main roster as a team. Perhaps, WWE has other plans for them. I would not mind seeing Ciampa vs. Gargano before the move to Raw or Smackdown. If that happens, then NXT Takeover: Brooklyn III in August would be the best time to pull the trigger on that match.
We could chalk this up to a simple mistake but she has not commented on it or attempted to repost a corrected version of the tweet. I guess we’ll know for sure on Saturday if the end is near for #DIY. They are scheduled to challenge The Authors of Pain for the NXT Tag Team Championship in a Ladder Match.
NXT Takeover: Chicago will air live on Saturday at 8 pm eastern on the WWE Network.
