Why Ciampa doesn't want to be on RAW/Smackdown Submitted by Aaron Rift on 12/02/2019 at 01:30 PM
During an appearance on Lilian Garcia's podcast, Tommaso Ciampa explained why he doesn't want to be on RAW or Smackdown:
"I have a little one at home and my schedule is better in NXT than it would be on the road Ė and I had neck surgery and Iím not freaking stupid. I get that my window is smaller than it was and my bump card is ticking, and I just look at it like if Iím doing 200+ days a year on the road with Raw or SmackDown, or Iím doing a manageable load of 30 to 50 matches with NXT. [Ö] So I can do four years of that in the time I do one year with Raw and SmackDown. So how long can my career and portfolio grow here as opposed to going there. Now itís become a thing where I have legitimately vocalized to them that if I have to go to Raw or SmackDown, then Iím going to retire."
