Tommaso Ciampa, one half of #DIY, suffered an ankle injury last night during a non-televised live event, an injury which could pose problems for tomorrow’s NXT Takeover: Chicago and the planned match involving #DIY and the Authors of Pain.
The match, which involved #DIY taking on Sanity, was stopped after a few minutes and Ciampa was carried to the back for further evaluation.
In a conference call held with reporters, Triple H confirmed the injury and said that Ciampa was X-rayed however there does not seem to be any major damage. He said that the injury looks like it’s a sprain and he is walking on it today but he will get checked again by WWE’s medical team. Triple H added that as of now, Ciampa will be able to participate in the tag team ladder match.
HHH admitted though that there is no backup plan if Ciampa’s situation turns for the worse and he can’t compete and they will work on plan B after they re-evaluate him today.
