Johnny Gargano was considered the face of NXT by many fans due to his excellent feuds with the likes of Tommaso Ciampa and Adam Cole. He has had various nicknames such as Johnny Wrestling, Johnny TakeOver and more and they are all for a good reason. It seems Adam Cole wants him to AEW as well.

As seen on a previous episode of NXT 2.0, Gargano made it clear that his status in NXT is up in the air. However, many fans realized that Johnny Gargano was done for good. That turned out to be true as he is now officially a free agent.

While speaking on Throwing Down with Renee Paquette and Miesha Tate, Adam Cole was asked about Johnny Gargano making his way to AEW. Adam Cole stated that he would love to see Gargano in AEW.

“I will always mention Johnny Gargano as one of my favourite opponents of all time. We had a series of matches in NXT that, to this day, I’m incredibly proud of, a fanatic human being, across the board. Johnny is a guy I would really love to see in AEW… who knows… as the wrestling landscape continues to change and evolve.”


As reported earlier, Johnny Gargano could also make his AEW debut in Cleaveland on January 26th. Johnny Gargano also recently stated that he will work wherever fans call for him to work. We will have to wait and see what Johnny Gargano will ultimately decide for himself.
