Overall all though looking at the year he had it really brought everything together and in many ways this was the year for him to sink or swim in the WWE. If you go back two years when Ciampa turned heel on Gargano he got injured very soon after and really derailed the early days of his heel run. However, as soon as he came back things got right on track with him finding his groove and jumping into a classic feud with Johnny Gargano.
At one point Tomasso really never showed any signs of being a top star in the world of wrestling as it seemed like he was really missing something. Once he was given a chance to show his potential and tap into his inner heel we saw a side of Ciampa that until last year we never really saw before and that showed just how much potential was hidden under the surface. It is for this reason that Tomasso Ciampa has found himself as the number 7 wrestler of the past twelve months.
