Tommaso Ciampa Found Out Key Detail Of WWE Return With Seconds To Spare

Tommaso Ciampa

Tommaso Ciampa recently made his big return to WWE television after several months out of action with a serious injury but despite having plenty of time for the company to prepare, a key detail of his return wasn’t worked out until the last second.

Tommaso Ciampa returned to WWE on the 19th of June edition of Raw where he defeated his one-time associate The Miz who he decried for not contacting him during his nine months out of action. Many of Ciampa’s fans were delighted that upon his return he was given back his NXT theme song which had defined much of his run on that brand.

Speaking on the Out of Character podcast, Tommaso Ciampa admitted that he did not know he was getting his popular theme song back until just a few moments before he returned to WWE television:

“I didn’t have a clue that my music was going to be ‘No One Will Survive’ until seconds before walking out the curtain. I was going through my warm up and I said to someone, ‘What’s my music going to be?’ ‘I don’t know, I guess we should have thought about that.’

“No rehearsal or anything. ‘What do you want it to be?’ ‘The new one is very good, I like it a lot, it is also very slow and fantastic when I’m a methodical heel. I do have this old NXT music that is probably better for this specific scenario where I’m going to be a surprise.’

“That was the whole conversation, it was probably three minutes before I went out. Seconds before I went out, somebody did thumbs up, ‘No one will survive.’ I was amped when I heard it and the crowd reaction was so good.”
