TRIPLE H PROVIDES INJURY UPDATE FOR NXT STAR
During the NXT media call following TakeOver 25, Triple H revealed the status of former champion, Tommaso Ciampa. Triple H confirmed that Ciampa was recovering quickly following his neck surgery, but that he was still a distance from being cleared to return to the ring.
“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 standpoint, 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.
Ciampa has been keeping us all regularly updated across his social media accounts with his recovery:
I miss Sports Entertaining.
I miss Goldie.
Every. Single. Day.
