Johnny Gargano was considered the lifeblood of NXT by many fans due to his excellent feuds with the likes of Tommaso Ciampa, Adam Cole and more. He also considered going to another promotion prior to his WWE return.
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 is what ended up happening in the end, as fans were simply glad.
Gargano finally made his return to WWE on last month’s episode of Monday Night RAW. While speaking WWE After The Bell, Gargano noted that he considered going to another promotion before returning to WWE.
“Obviously, it crossed my mind, but I was at the point to where I wasn’t ready to come back yet. I was enjoying myself. I have people that work around me that go out and talk to other places, and I have a great team around me that have those discussions so I don’t have to.
“That was a big thing too while I was gone. I was very focused on being a dad and letting the business stuff be handled by other people. It was cool that promotions respected that and said, ‘Okay, we’re going to leave Johnny alone, but we’ll talk to his people about what could potentially happen.’
“I’m lucky to be in that spot. It’s weird to say something like that given I’m from the Indies and I do everything myself.
“Obviously, it crossed my mind, I watch everything. I’m a wrestling fan. We’ll all wrestling nerds at the end of the day. I’m a wrestling fan. It always just came back down to, and I said this in my return promo, when I was a kid, I dreamed of being Intercontinental Champion.
“I dreamed of being WWE Champion and wrestling at WrestleMania. Those things hold so much weight to me. I don’t know if 20-30 years down the line, if I could forgive myself for not trying. I never really tried. I did everything in NXT and was fulfilled in NXT and proud of it, but I didn’t try on that scale yet. I haven’t done it and I wanted to do it.”
We will have to wait and see how Johnny Gargano will be booked in the coming weeks. Fans are simply happy they get to see him wrestle again and that’s all that matters.
