Johnny Gargano has been touted as the face of NXT by many fans due to his excellent feuds with the likes of Tommaso Ciampa and Adam Cole. He has numerous nicknames such as Johnny Wrestling, Johnny TakeOver and more and they are all for good reason.

While Johnny Gargano has his fans, he also has his fair share of haters and critics. This includes pro wrestling legend Jim Cornette, who doesn’t like anything about Gargano at all.

While speaking on his YouTube Channel, Jim Cornette stated that Johnny Gargano has no personality and doesn’t believe he should go to AEW, unless he faces Marko Stunt in his first match there.

“Get rid of Johnny Gargano. Can you imagine, he’s even worse than the cosplayers they have because he has no personality so can you imagine him trying to get on in old AEW. He certainly doesn’t have any friends over there, does he? They got CM Punk, they got Adam Cole, they got Bryan Danielson, they wouldn’t take Gargano. What is the appeal of this clown? He’s five foot six, 140 pounds, he’s got one facial expression, he and his wife do nothing but phony tongue-in-cheek promos where you can tell there’s nothing genuine about them, his matches are boring, he’s rotten.


He’s even small for AEW, isn’t he boring for AEW? I will cheer for Johnny Gargano going to AEW if the first thing he does is have a single match with Marko Stunt just to show everybody what Johnny Gargano’s real spot in wrestling really is.”

With NXT going in a new direction led by Vince McMahon’s vision, it remains to be seen what will become of Johnny Gargano and whether he will ever make his way to AEW one day or not.
