Tommaso Ciampa Names His WWE Dream Match

Tommaso Ciampa

WWE Raw star Tommaso Ciampa has a dream bout in mind if he is able to get the band back together with Johnny Gargano.

Tommaso Ciampa returned to action in June after several months on the shelf with a hip injury. Since then, he has been involved in a rivalry with his former ally, The Miz. However, he is already looking beyond this toward a series of dream matches alongside Gargano, who hinted at a reunion with his former DIY teammate back in May.

During a recent interview on Out of Character with Ryan Satin, Ciampa said his dream match for he and Gargano would be against current Undisputed Tag Team Champions Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn, not least because of their shared history.

“The dream match that I always see, I guess there are two, but the one that jumps is with Sami and Kevin, parallels to their relationship and ours.

“I have insane chemistry with Sami Zayn, Johnny has insane chemistry with Kevin Owen, really good friends of ours. That would be such a dream match for us, let alone fans.”

Later, The Blackheart said there could be stories around whether the two teams could trust their partners.

“I think we could have so much fun with that smarter fanbase. There is always the underlying; can Johnny trust me, can Sami trust Kevin?

“Kevin and I are buddies in real life and we have a bit of similarity to us. We could really have fun and do some stuff, whether it’s backstage vignettes. All I have is time and ideas. You write them on your and wait for the time to put them into existence. It would be amazing.”

Tommaso Ciampa wouldn’t stop at Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn

Going on The Blackheart listed more teams he wants to take on, including The New Day and Viking Raiders.

“Usos are a different level. Kofi (Kingston) and I started months apart on the independents at the same school. I’ve never done anything with them in WWE. The idea of New Day, when Big E gets healthy. Ivar, when he was Handsome Johnny, first guy who trained me and broke me into the business. The idea of doing stuff with Viking Raiders.

“All of those scenarios and the stories when can tell with those guys. Johnny and I have a real passion for tag team wrestling, the psychology of it, making it mean something. If we could bring some of that in and get with these larger-than-life superstars, it could be a special run. I’m definitely open to it.

Most importantly, Ciampa wants to stay healthy so that he has the opportunity to achieve his goals, which also includes revisiting his classic series with Gargano in NXT.

“I just want so badly to stay healthy and get the opportunity to tell great stories and have great programs where people five years from now, I don’t want it to be, ‘He had that great match with so and so.’

“I want it to be rapid fire, ‘He did the Uso thing, the thing with Kevin and Sami, they did their own thing, a thing with Gunther and Randy (Orton),’ this portfolio of ‘Damn, that was a hell of a career. What a run.’ Whether that’s DIY, something against Johnny, which would be a dream scenario.”
