Tommaso Ciampa is the current NXT Champion, and he made a big impact when he debuted on the main roster, but it was recently reported that Ciampa is dealing with a neck injury.
It was reported on Wrestling Observer Radio that Tommaso Ciampa is scheduled to undergo neck surgery over the next few days.
It’s being said that Ciampa will be out of action for a long time, but the exact amount of time is unknown.
Tommaso Ciampa will now have to vacate the title, and plans for his match at NXT TakeOver: New York have been nixed.
Originally WWE was hopeful that Ciampa would be able to work through WrestleMania weekend, but his injury reportedly got worse and caused WWE to change plans.
