Triple H spoke with media reporters following Saturday’s (June 1, 2019) WWE NXT TakeOver: XXV event to talk about a wide range of topics including an update on former NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa. The injured NXT star did make an appearance on the pre-show of this event by joining the panel of analysts.
In March, Ciampa had to relinquish the WWE NXT Title after undergoing neck surgery. As of this writing, it’s too early to tell when he’ll be able to make a return to the squared circle and wrestle again.
Triple H mentioned that there is good news to share as Ciampa is ahead of schedule in his neck recovery. At this time, he still remains far from being able to compete.
“Cleared for non contact means you can’t do anything in this business,” Triple H laughed. “He can talk which is what was doing in this moment. He’s ahead of schedule and doing extremely well. Ahead of schedule on all of it and moving along.
But with the type of injury he had and the type of surgery he had, especially in this from a physicality stand point, you’re not doing anything until you’re 100 percent. It’s not like you can go in there and lightly take suplexes. You have to be 100 percent. So, he’s still got a ways to go but he’s way ahead of the curve and the schedule.”
