Is the Italian Psycho Killer out for Takeover?

According to reports, Tomasso Ciampa – one-half of the former NXT Tag Team Champions D.I.Y. – suffered a legit injury during an NXT Live Event just outside of Cincinnati, OH. The injury was first reported by many fans in attendance via Twitter. However, we’re still waiting on an official confirmation.

Ciampa was participating in a tag team match with his regular D.I.Y. partner, Johnny Gargano, against SAnitY members Eric Young and Alexander Wolfe at a live event in Highland Heights, KY.

Not long after the match began, Ciampa dove from the ring apron onto both Young and Wolfe, at which point he apparently hurt his leg. Adding more credibility to the report, after the incident, the referee held up the crossed-arms “X” sign, usually indicating to the medical personnel backstage that the injury is for real. The match itself was declared a no contest.

D.I.Y. are scheduled this Saturday to challenge current NXT Tag Team Champions the Authors of Pain in a ladder match for the titles. It still remains to be seen if Ciampa will be cleared to compete or not.
