Tommaso Ciampa has undergone anterior cervical fusion surgery due to his neck injury today, WWE has posted over Twitter. Any further details of the surgery were not provided.
Ciampa is now expected to drop his NXT Championship title on NXT tapings next week as he will be expected to be out of action for around 6 months. But according to multiple reports, WWE has already started planning the storyline for his return. The possible angle could be that Ciampa got injured when Gargano sent him through the screen during last month’s TV tapings and the storyline could pick up from there.
