Ciampa suffers ankle injury at non-televised live event

May 19, 2017 - by Steve Gerweck

Tommaso Ciampa, one half of #DIY, suffered an ankle injury last night during a non-televised live event, an injury which could pose problems for tomorrow’s NXT Takeover: Chicago and the planned match involving #DIY and the Authors of Pain.

The match, which involved #DIY taking on Sanity, was stopped after a few minutes and Ciampa was carried to the back for further evaluation.

In a conference call held with reporters, Triple H confirmed the injury and said that Ciampa was X-rayed however there does not seem to be any major damage. He said that the injury looks like it’s a sprain and he is walking on it today but he will get checked again by WWE’s medical team. Triple H added that as of now, Ciampa will be able to participate in the tag team ladder match.

Triple H admitted though that there is no backup plan if Ciampa’s situation turns for the worse and he can’t compete and they will work on plan B after they re-evaluate him today.

    The ONLY Plan B would be to have the AoP attack him backstage and ‘injure’ him and take our Gargano and have some other team come in and face them. Unfortunately with TM-61 out the only other team that makes sense would be Heavy Machinery, who I personally feel would be too early of a push for them.

  2. Agreed Ian but maybe Gargano can get a replacement tag partner. Maybe Ohno?

    If #DIY got taken out then I would say put Killian Dian & Alexander Wolfe as SAnitY and add No Way Jose & Kassius Ohno and make it a Triple Tag Team Ladder natch for the NXT Tag Team Championship title and have SAnitY win somehow while AoP are out of the ring.

    Now if Nikki Cross were to also pin Ruby Riot while Eric beats Roderick then Eric Young can crow about SAnitY having the 2 of the 3 NXT Championship titles and beating Roderick and setting his eyes on the NXT Championship.
