The Way reunited on Monday Night Raw and Johnny Gargano teased the return of another WWE Superstar.
During Monday’s first Raw post in the WWE Draft, Johnny Gargano and the rest of The Way got together and actually caused another member to join their ranks soon. Saying, “He’ll be back soon and I think he’ll be great,” cameras cut out before Gargano revealed who he was referring to. Candice LeRae didn’t seem entirely sure it was a good idea, and social media seems to get the idea that Tommaso Ciampa is likely to return to Raw in the coming weeks.
Ciampa and Gargano have a storied history together, dating back to the independent wrestling scene and WWE’s developmental brand NXT. They started the DIY (Do It Yourself) tag team, and their subsequent feud is one of the most memorable and critically acclaimed storylines in NXT history. Clearly, LeRae hasn’t forgotten about their heated battles, but Gargano seems to be remembering how close the two were before their rivalry.
Ciampa was a Triple H project right around the time he took over creatively. But, an unfortunate injury sidelined Ciampa for an extended period of time. A lot has happened while Ciampa was recovering and rehabbing, but he was not mentioned in the WWE Draft, nor has he been talked about on TV. No return date has been revealed, so if this is his trailer, it will come as a pleasant surprise to the WWE Universe.
Happy birthday to Ciampa
Ironically, on the same night that The Way reunited and teased what could be Ciampa’s impending return to WWE, the wrestler celebrated a birthday. It will be nice to have the whole group back together and fans were already excited about the faction seen together on the first night of Raw that included the group. Indi Hartwell and Dexter Lumis also seem to have picked up right where they left off.
