NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa believes he is a “God of pro wrestling.” The NXT Champ defeated Velveteen Dream in a match at a live event in St. Paul yesterday. Following his victory, Ciampa cut a promo putting himself over. In his speech, he dubbed himself a “God of pro wrestling”:
“I am a god of professional wrestling. You should worship every step I take and every word that comes out of my mouth. I am what carries this brand. I single-handedly turned NXT into the ‘A Show.’ I’ll give it up to each and every performer in the back, night and night, giving their all to you.
“The facts though remain the same, I’m the guy who holds on to ‘Goldy.’ I’m the guy who holds the most coveted title in all of sports entertainment, that’s because I deserve it! Nobody deserves it more than me.
“Everyone back there likes to go around and hashtag ‘we are NXT,’ newsflash, I am NXT!”

Also, this past Friday during an NXT live event in Green Bay, Wisconsin, Ciampa teased a Champion vs. Champion match with North American titleholder Ricochet. The two held their titles up to one another, and Ciampa took to Twitter to tease a bout between them:
