There are currently a number of WWE stars sitting on the sidelines due to injury, and one of them happens to be Tommaso Ciampa. The former NXT Champion hasn’t appeared on WWE programming since September of 2022 as he underwent hip surgery last year and has been out of action ever since.

However, recently it’s been rumored that Ciampa could be returning sooner than later, and Johnny Gargano threw some fuel on the fire a few weeks ago when he seemingly teased that Ciampa could align himself with The Way when he returns.

One way or another it seems that Tommaso Ciampa has gotten himself in great shape as he recently noted that he’s the heaviest he’s been in 10 years when he posted the following on Instagram:

“Little post workout check in. This is the heaviest I’ve been in 10 years. But much leaner than I was back then.

I just completed my third meso cycle using the RP Hypertrophy App. Stronger and bigger than ever before. Plus, well fed and incredible recovery. Dialed in.”

Not only is Tommaso Ciampa rumored to be returning soon, but it’s also been reported that he and Johnny Gargano could be receiving a big push as a tag team. Stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
