Tommaso Ciampa’s ankle injury is worse than originally thought and he is scheduled to travel to Birmingham, Alabama shortly for further diagnosis and treatment.
As noted, Ciampa suffered the injury at last week’s NXT live event in Highland Heights, KY during a tag team match between #DIY and Sanity. Just a few minutes into the match, Ciampa dived off the ring apron onto Sanity and hurt his ankle. Despite the injury, Ciampa powered through it and wrestled at last weekend’s NXT Takeover: Chicago event against Authors of Pain for the NXT Tag Team Titles in a Ladder Match. Although there were people in the company that thought that the injury was a work, Triple H confirmed on Facebook Live that Ciampa was dealing with a significant injury. Dave Meltzer also confirmed the news on a recent Wrestling Observer Radio show.
We hope to have more details on his injury shortly.
