Tommaso Ciampa Undergoes Surgery
Tommaso Ciampa out of action
Tommaso Ciampa has undergone surgery.
It emerged this week that the two-time NXT Champion was out of action with an injury and Ciampa revealed on Wednesday that he has undergone hip labrum surgery.
Ciampa wrote on Instagram:
"The road to recovery begins. It's a familiar road. Almost too familiar. Special thanks to Dr Emblom and his team for taking such incredible care of me. Thanks to the WWE medical team for once again putting me back together. And thanks to my 'nurses' at home for always giving me perspective. It took awhile but we finally found the cause to all of that glute/SI/back pain. A hip labrum that 'looked like shredded cheese' according to my wife, who watched the surgery.

The Blackheart has not wrestled for WWE since a September 17 house show when he lost to then-United States Champion Bobby Lashley. His last match on TV took place on the August 22 edition of Raw when Ciampa and The Miz defeated Lashley and AJ Styles by DQ.
