Reason Why Tommaso Ciampa Was Made Babyface

Tommaso Ciampa is one of the best heels in professional wrestling. He can cut a great promo, he has the heel demeanor and everything one would need to be a great heel. However, Ciampa and Johnny Gargano were placed together upon their main roster call-ups as a babyface tag team.

This doesn’t make much sense if one follows NXT. Dave Meltzer discussed booking decision on Wrestling Observer Radio where he explained why WWE decided to make Ciampa a babyface. Here is what he said:

“The solution is that you keep the characters consistent whatever that is. Look, there was no reason for Gargano and Ciampa to be a tag team. Why? I mean because they were a tag team in NXT?”

“So bring them up as singles and bring Ciampa up as a heel. He’s a good heel I mean there was no reason for it. They did it because they don’t give a sh*t. I mean that’s the reason they did it because they don’t give a sh*t.”

Bryan Alvarez noted that Vince McMahon is the one who doesn’t care about keeping the characters consistent and that is a big problem.
