It’s sad to see any performer getting injured especially somebody like ciampa who was on the cusp of greatness. The hardest thing in all of this is that it’s a injury similar to what forced edge into retirement which mean it’S a very serious injury. The residual effect of this type of injury is the reason why sheamus seem to be stuck in a tag team instead of getting a single run. So i really hope that if he comes back, he will be able to perform at 100% and resume is single push as he a great character and deserve more then to be stuck with johnny gargano in a tag team.
