Tommaso Ciampa Hopeful Of WWE Royal Rumble 2022 Spot

Ciampa wants in!

Tommaso Ciampa is hoping he gets the call to participate in the 2022 Men's Royal Rumble Match. 

A host of NXT talent have, over the years, been surprise inclusions in Royal Rumble matches. The likes of Johnny Gargano, Damian Priest, Keith Lee and Adam Cole have all stepped into the annual WWE event from NXT at previous pay-per-views. 

Current NXT Champion Ciampa is not one of those names however, but he is hopeful he will get the opportunity in 2022 after revealing the personal importance of the event.

Speaking to Sports Illustrated, Ciampa said: "I know people in WWE dream about wrestling at WrestleMania, but for me, it was always the Royal Rumble. The idea of seeing who would return, the surprise of who would debut, even watching what Edge did last year, that’s always been the Rumble has always meant a lot to me.

"There are so many people I’d love to have an opportunity to share the ring with. So if that opportunity knocks, I’m answering."
