Tommaso Ciampa Teases AEW’s Jokers

Tommaso Ciampa has shown his lighter side as he playfully teases who AEW’s two jokers in the Owen Hart Foundation tournament could be.

On AEW Dynamite, both men’s and women’s Owen Hart Foundation tournaments continue with Samoa Joe and Dr. Britt Baker both in action. Crucially for those stars, they don’t know who their opponents will be as they have been drawn to face Jokers.

Now former NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa has taken to social media to either shine a light on who the Jokers might be or to throw a red herring in everyone’s way as he shared a photo of himself hanging out at Disney World with former DIY partner Johnny Gargano and Candice LeRae.

Ciampa interestingly captioned the photo:

“Hanging out at Epcot with a couple of jokers. 🖤”

Johnny Gargano left WWE shortly after the NXT WarGames event in December 2021 when his contract expired. Since then he has not competed in the ring but he and LeRae have welcomed their son Quill Lewis Gargano into the world.

Candice LeRae was on leave due to her pregnancy when Gargano’s deal expired, it has since transpired that her contract with WWE expired in early May 2022, leaving both her and Johnny Gargano free to appear anywhere they want.
