DIY reunited on Monday Night Under Triple H's regime!

WWE revived DIY under Triple H's regime after both Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa made it to the main roster. However, a current champion was unhappy with the two and fired massive shots.

DIY is the most successful act from the then-black-and-gold brand under Triple H's creative leadership. The stars spent years teaming up and feuding against each other before both were moved to WWE's main roster and reunited.

Speaking on Solo Wrestling, Grayson Waller was asked about DIY, and one-half of the WWE Tag Team Champion fired massive shots at Gargano and Ciampa heading into Backlash 2024.

"Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa, I mean this from the bottom of my heart; my goal on SmackDown right now is to make sure you never live your dreams. I know how much you wanted this, I know how hard you fought in NXT, I know how hard you've fought since you got on the main roster, but we won the Tag Team Championships before you. That must burn."

Waller also discussed his past rivalry with Johnny Gargano and continued the onslaught.

"I'm going to make sure that the two of you never hold these championships. Johnny, I've never forgotten everything we went through (...) I truly never want you to succeed in this business. And, it is my goal, right here on SmackDown, to make sure that never happens. Keep dressing like your boss [Triple H and Shawn Michaels], keep doing cosplay, and whatever flop stuff you want to do (...) I guarantee you'll never be a champion in this company as long as I'm here." [From 06:15 to 06:58]
