I have been told that I am cleared to return as of September 11th…
by the internet.
So, I called and asked my surgeon to confirm. He laughed at me. And said (kind of in an Allen Iverson voice) “the internet, we talking about the internet”.

Sapp later reported that Fightful reached out to Ciampa and when given the information Fightful had from WWE’s report, Ciampa stated the issue was likely due to miscommunication that often happens within WWE. Ciampa also stated that he believes Fightful’s report was not done with malice.
