Tommaso Ciampa made a surprise appearance on WWE Friday Night SmackDown. He showed up to confront The Miz during a Miz TV segment that was originally scheduled with Bray Wyatt as the guest.
Ciampa essentially called Miz a joke while he (Ciampa) busts his back on NXT. Ciampa criticized Miz for being a wannabe actor and Miz fired back and said people have been saying the same things to him for 15 years. This led to a match between Ciampa and Miz.
Ciampa won the match after hitting Miz in the face with the knee and the Fairytale Ending (a modified version of Triple H’s Pedigree).
Although the NXT appearances this week happened because of the Saudi Arabia flight issues, all of this works out for WWE as hype for Survivor Series since that show will be a tri-branded event.
