DIY (sometimes stylized as #DIY) is a professional wrestling tag team, composed of Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa. The team, also known for wrestling for independent promotions, are best known for performing in WWE's NXT brand, where they are one-time NXT Tag Team Champions.

History

Beginnings in NXT

On September 2, 2015, Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa were announced as part of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic tournament. On September 9, they successfully advanced in the first round of the tournament, defeating the also newly formed duo of Tyler Breeze and Bull Dempsey. On the September 16 episode of NXT, Ciampa and Gargano lost to Baron Corbin and Rhyno, thus eliminating them from the tournament. On the October 28 edition of NXT, Chad Gable and Jason Jordan defeated Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa.

On April 2, it was confirmed that Ciampa had signed with WWE earlier in the week. Ciampa's NXT contract was a so-called "Tier 2" contract, which allowed him to continue working independent dates alongside his now regular NXT bookings. On the April 13 episode of NXT, Ciampa and Gargano defeated The Vaudevillians. On the May 25 edition of NXT, Ciampa and Gargano defeated TM-61. On June 1, Gargano and Ciampa defeated The Revival (Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson), the NXT Tag Team Champions, in a non-title match. On July 21, it was reported that Gargano was signing a new full-time NXT deal, which would prevent him from taking further independent bookings.

On June 23, Gargano and Ciampa entered the Cruiserweight Classic tournament, with the match having Gargano defeating Ciampa in the first round match. On July 14, Gargano was eliminated from the tournament by the eventual winner T.J. Perkins. On August 20 at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn II, Ciampa and Gargano unsuccessfully challenged The Revival for the NXT Tag Team Championship. On the November 9 episode of NXT, Ciampa and Gargano, now collectively billed as "DIY", were defeated by The Authors of Pain (Akam and Rezar) in the semi-finals of the 2016 Dusty Rhodes Classic, due to interference from The Revival. Ciampa and Gargano received another title shot in a two out of three falls match on November 19 at NXT TakeOver: Toronto, where they defeated The Revival to become the new NXT Tag Team Champions.

DIY went on to successfully defend the NXT Tag Team Championship against the team of Tajiri and Akira Tozawa, as well as TM61, in Japan and Australia, respectively. At NXT TakeOver: San Antonio, they lost the NXT Tag Team Championship to The Authors of Pain.
