    Tommaso Ciampa - The Hero We Deserve

    I saw that thread about Johnny Wrestling. Had to make sure the hero of the story has a thread.

    “Stoop to your own level. Your nature. Trust yourself. And most importantly... You have to learn what laws are really laws and not… Oppression."

    The greatest sports entertainer in the world.

    Everything they've done with him since his injury return has been spot on. As the say, it takes two to tango, and for me he's been as big a part of Gargano's success story this year as the man himself has been. And yet, it feels like he's being overlooked in it all.

    If the main event of Chicago what I think it may be, he may end up getting his due.

    The stuff he does on twitter is so good. The fact he spoiled Infinity Wars was just too perfect.

    I never thought of Gargano as a potential big star before his WWE run, but I loved Ciampa from the first time I saw him in 2015 and I think the fact that he's getting the chance to hit his full potential is fantastic. He's been just as good as Gargano in this story and hopefully will continue to get a big spotlight for a long time to come.

    If people want to know why we all want him to succeed, go to his twitter page. He's the new age "heel" we need.

    What I like even more than his twitter antics (which are very entertaining, for sure) is that he's a bad guy because of the actions he's taken, because of his history. I worry when he comes up to the main roster because history is not allowed up there, but what else is new?

    I really got a kick out of when Candace said 'I don't know who you are any more' on the most recent NXT, a lone voice in the audience called out 'neither do we'.

    Awesome.

    What do we think of Ciampa as champ?

    I'm interested who he goes up against now Black is legit injured and Gargano is kayfabe injured, there aren't a whole lot of faces floating around NXT really ready to step up to the championship level.

    No way is he ready for the kind of fire Ciampa would bring. If Ricochet and EC3 got in his head then Ciampa would positively melt him.

    That said given his character it could be a cool story that he goes up and just bites off way more than he can chew. Elements of the community would crap on it and say he got 'squashed' but it would set an interesting measuring stick in his history for him to one day come back and surpass.

    Dream fronting up to Ciampa to complete a full 'face' turn, if you like, would be great.

    Having him lose and then come back 5/6 months later on and win would be even better.

    Let Dream rule NXT with a beautiful velvet fist. Have him hold that title for longer than Balor and be twice as interesting as he ever was.

    Couldn't agree more. He should lose at first, then have to go back to the drawing board, but I can see him reign for a full year and still be popular and fresh. He needs that kind of experience holding a belt. Cena started to get boo'd months into his first reign because he didn't know how to carry a promotion. Let Dream carry the promotion for a year, let him get use to being the face that runs the place!

    Ohno has been piling up some wins lately. It may not be a Takeover match but I could see him emerging to get a title shot.
