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. His excellent matches and in-ring skills propelled him to the top of the NXT division.

Gargano left WWE last year and fans were very sad about that fact. After his exit, fans wondered what the future held for him. Their questions were answered after Gargano came back to WWE last month.

While speaking Out of Character with Ryan Satin, Gargano was asked about dream matches now that he is back in WWE. Gargano made it clear he wants a piece of Rey Mysterio.

“It’s one of the underrated ones that don’t get talked about enough is me and Rey Mysterio, it’s definitely a dream match for me. He is literally the trendsetter for guys like me, he has been amazingly great for many, many years, he is the GOAT for a reason, and I can’t wait to get in the ring with Rey. I used to make like little paper machete Rey Mysterio masks when he was a cruiserweight in WCW, so now to potentially get the chance to potentially get to be in the ring with him would be a dream come true.”


We’ll have to see what the company has in store for Gargano in the coming weeks. Fans would certainly love to see Garano duke it out with the master of the 619 somewhere down the line.
