WWE programming featured a major shake up this week, as NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa, NXT North American Champion Johnny Gargano, Ricochet and Aleister Black all made their main roster debuts on Raw.
The aforementioned talents also appeared on SmackDown Live, and Tommaso Ciampa & Johnny Gargano managed to pick up a big win over The Bar.
However, there was one scary spot during the match when Tommaso Ciampa went for a powerbomb off the turnbuckle, and he sent Sheamus back first straight into his knee.
It looked pretty painful to say the least.
Tommaso Ciampa injury. Ugly, don't watch if you're squeamish. 🙏#SDLive pic.twitter.com/J9FoghlBDH

The good news is that Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful is reporting that both Ciampa and Sheamus are said to be fine following the match.
I'm told from backstage at Smackdown Tommaso Ciampa says he is fine, and the same with Sheamus. You may remember that Sheamus has admittedly battled stenosis. The subsequent "x" call was for Ciampa.

It was recently reported that current plans call for Ciampa, Gargano, Black and Ricochet to appear on Raw, SmackDown Live and NXT for the time being, so it sounds like we’ll be seeing more of them in the weeks to come.
