Johnny Gargano was a top star in Triple H’s version of NXT. He returned to WWE after Triple H took control of the company’s creative direction, but Johnny Wrestling is currently sidelined due to shoulder injury. Gargano recently gave an update on his injury and shared that he is trying to return within 5 to 6 weeks.

WWE made Johnny Gargano’s injury announcement this week on Monday Night Raw. Gargano later revealed on Twitter that he is currently sidelined with a grade two AC sprain. The incident occurred during a recent WWE house performance in Toronto, Canada.

Johnny Gargano last competed on December 30th, when he and Dexter Lumis defeated Baron Corbin and The Miz. Gargano was asked when fans might expect to see him wrestle again while appearing on WWE’s The Bump. Doctors informed him that it might take about 5 to 6 weeks to fully recover. Gargano is going to do everything in his power to cut that time down.

I tweeted out that I injured my shoulder at a live event in Toronto, which is ironic because that’s where I came back, in Toronto, and that’s where I injured my shoulder. I got rammed into the steel steps, and I sprained my AC joint. Doctors say originally about 5-6 weeks. I’m going to do everything in my power to cut that time down…that’s the most transparent I can be there. We’re going to see what can happen, and I’m going to work very hard to come back as soon as possible because there’s a lot of things that I still want to accomplish. A lot of things I still want to do. I am far from happy with how things have gone for me recently, and I want to write those wrongs and show everyone out there who believes in me what Johnny Wrestling is truly capable of doing.


It remains to be seen if Johnny Gargano will be able to make his return in time for the Royal Rumble premium live event. Stay tuned to Ringside News for more from the world of pro wrestling.
