WWE News: promoter hints at Tomasso Ciampa deal

Tomasso Ciampa WWE

At Sunday's Progress Wrestling show in London, England, promoter Jim Smallman strongly hinted Tommaso Ciampa was WWE-bound.

Smallman said that he had talked with a friend from Blackpool, clearly meaning William Regal, and said that Ciampa's last match would be on the company's 11/23 show against Marty Scurll. 

The 30-year-old Boston native, who had lost to Mark Haskins and was still in the ring at the time of the announcement, thanked the fans for their support and told them that he'd see them on television very soon.

Ciampa and Johnny Gargano have been working on NXT television, which tapes again this coming Thursday. Ciampa did well in the battle royal on this past week's NXT, outlasting most of the contracted talent in it, which seemed to be a sign he was strong on the radar.

According to those close to the situation, Ciampa has not signed a WWE deal at this time.
