WWE NXT Superstar Tommaso Ciampa had an interview recently with Sportskeeda and commented on why TV ratings matter between AEW and WWE NXT, among other things. We have included a few highlights of the interview below.
Tommaso Ciampa On why TV ratings matter:
“It makes it a little bit more fun. It brings that competitive edge out. I mean have friends over there and I also have people over there I’ve never met or ever shared a ring with. It’s awesome to see, you know, everyone just elevating their game. Everyone just wants it. I don’t know why people say ratings don’t matter… they sure as hell matter. Like, you want to win.”
Tommaso Ciampa On NXT now doing live TV:
“Now that we’re on USA, we’re doing live TV. There’s just no more ‘yea buts.’ – They’re (NXT roster) doing everything that you would constitute of as a main roster player. I think that’s the main thing, that switch. That developmental like, stink is just gone.”
