On the June 19 episode of WWE Raw, Tommaso Ciampa made his return to the ring after being sidelined since the fall of 2022 with a hip injury.
Ciampa answered the open challenge of The Miz, who he was aligned with prior to his injury.
When Ciampa returned, fans heard his old "No One Will Survive Theme," indicating that he was going back to his NXT roots as an aggressive babyface.
Speaking to Ryan Satin on Out of Character, Ciampa discussed getting back "No One Will Survive."
"I didn't have a clue that my music was going to be 'No One Will Survive' until seconds before walking out the curtain. I was going through my warm up and I said to someone, 'What's my music going to be?' 'I don't know, I guess we should have thought about that.' No rehearsal or anything. 'What do you want it to be?' 'The new one is very good, I like it a lot, it is also very slow and fantastic when I'm a methodical heel. I do have this old NXT music that is probably better for this specific scenario where I'm going to be a surprise.' That was the whole conversation, it was probably three minutes before I went out. Seconds before I went out, somebody did thumbs up, 'No one will survive.' I was amped when I heard it and the crowd reaction was so good," he recalled.
Ciampa noted that it was an easy night at the office working with Miz.
Elsewhere during the interview, Ciampa revealed he was cleared three weeks before he made his television return. Fans can find his full comments by clicking here.
