Fightful is reporting that former WWE NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa has been pitched to join Edge’s new stable.
Edge began forming his stable last night at WrestleMania when Damian Priest helped him defeat AJ Styles. Apparently, there are plans for at least two more people to join them in the very near future.
Ciampa has been making appearances on the main roster in recent weeks and his match at NXT Stand & Deliver was presented to fans as his goodbye to the brand.
In 2019, Ciampa talked about not wanting to move up to Raw or SmackDown. During an interview on Lilian Garcia’s podcast, he said the following: Now, it’s become a thing where I’ve legitimately vocalized to them like, ‘If I have to go to Raw or SmackDown, then I’m gonna retire and I would love to produce or coach or be a part of it. There’s no way I taking on that load and going, ‘Yeah, you know what? I’ll just have a six-month run and then call it quits.’ I just won’t do it, It’s just not worth it to me.”
Ciampa also talked about the number of bumps left on his bump card and how the NXT schedule is beneficial to him. If Ciampa is part of a stable and he is able to work a reduced schedule, the stable could be used to feature him on TV while not having to wrestle all the time.
