In this episode, Lilian sits down with NXT Superstar, Tommaso Ciampa. Tommaso discusses all about his life’s journey that has led to the massive success that he is currently experiencing.

Tommaso talks about his suicide attempt during that time and how his life was saved and changed after that night. He speaks honestly about his family being affected by it and how he always makes the effort to fight off depression. Like many others, he speaks about being an introvert and how he looks at pro wrestling as an escape. Many remember Tommaso making an appearance on a 2005 episode of Smackdown getting chokeslammed by the Undertaker and he gives exclusive in depth details about the behind the scenes on that memorable taping which includes an interaction with Stephanie McMahon that has still affected him to this day.
