Johnny Gargano was considered the heart and soul of NXT by many fans due to his excellent feuds with the likes of Tommaso Ciampa, Adam Cole and more. He had several classic matches and was well-loved by fans. Drew McIntyre is also glad Gargano is back.
After Gargano’s WWE departure, fans simply wondered what the future held for Johnny Wrestling. After Triple H became the Creative head of WWE, fans believed Gargano would come back. That was a very safe bet, because that’s exactly what happened.
Gargano finally made his return to WWE on this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW. While speaking on WWE’s The Bump, Drew McIntyre was asked about Gargano’s return. McIntyre believes Gargano deserves the opportunity he is getting, because he has seen everything Johnny Gargano worked for.
“Very exciting to see Johnny back. I tweeted a picture of himself and myself as the EVOLVE Tag Team Champions. Johnny’s such an incredible talent. One of my biggest matches and when I really showed the world what I was capable of in-ring outside of WWE during my independent run was at Dragon Gate USA, [it was] an EVOLVE Championship match with Johnny. He made me raise my game. I did win that match, and it really showed what I could do in the ring. We became the first-ever EVOLVE Tag Team Champions, spent time in NXT together. He achieved all this NXT success, but I didn’t imagine he would get the opportunity, a real opportunity, on Raw or SmackDown. He’s getting it right now. He’s earned it, he deserves it.
Gargano took out Austin Theory on this week’s show, so it is likely he will be feuding with his former The Way stablemate for the time being. We’ll have to see how the feud turns out, but Johnny Wrestling is only getting started in WWE.
