Johnny Gargano took to Twitter to address his WWE return on Aug 22 RAW. He said that he always “wanted it to be a legit surprise” and seems to be happy with how things were executed. Johnny finally declared with a hashtag that “Johnny Wrestling is back!”
After a commercial break during the third hour of RAW, Johnny Gargano’s song abruptly began, shocking the audience. When Johnny Wrestling entered the ring, the audience gave him an amazing reception. His sequence ended with him delivering a superkick to the head of Theory before performing a brief HBK dance.
Throughout Johnny Gargano’s free agent status, WWE remained interested in re-signing him.
