"I am a realist. I call it like I see it. I have the best physique in all of WWE; this is not by accident. I am the best in-ring performer in all of WWE; this is not happenstance. I am the best on the microphone in all of WWE; this is not a debate. I am your NXT World Champion. I am a god. You want something to believe in. Believe in me," said Ciampa. 

Ciampa thinks he's so great that he will raise the status of NXT. 

"With Tommaso Ciampa as its ruler, NXT has officially become the “A-show.” There is no ceiling. No boundaries. No limits. I am writing my own legacy, and I am carrying NXT along for the ride. When my mission is complete, kids will no longer dream of their WrestleMania Moment. Kids will dream of their 'TakeOver Moment,'" said Ciampa. 

Ciampa has been scheduled for a triple threat match at NXT Takeover: Brooklyn 4 against Johnny Gargano and Aleister Black. After NXT went off the air this week, it was revealed that Black had been attacked in the parking lot and his status is unknown.
