When Tommaso Ciampa vacated the NXT Championship in March of 2019, wrestling fans everywhere were devastated. Fortunately, the WWE Network cameras were also rolling, which led to the terrific documentary Tommaso Ciampa: blackHEART. It's proof that, despite the horrible WWE Chronicle series, the Network can indeed produce docs that are both emotional and relevant. Join us as we dissect the rise of Ciampa, the glory of NXT, and the joy of a simple, well-told story.
