Tommaso Ciampa will be on the sidelines for the rest of this year. Last month, Ciampa revealed that he underwent surgery on his hip labrum.
Pwinsider reported today, “In asking around, we are told he isn’t expected back until next year.”
Ciampa was last seen in action at a September 17 WWE live event when he faced Bobby Lashley.
After years of being a top star in NXT, including as NXT champion, Ciampa was officially called up to the main roster shortly after WrestleMania 38. After under Vince McMahon, it seemed that the former Chairman had given up on him. However, he was given a renewed push under the leadership of Triple H.
He had been aligned with The Miz, helping him try to escape the wrath of Dexter Lumis on Monday Night Raw before disappearing from television.
