Johnny Gargano returned to WWE NXT this week in a big surprise. A lot of people were expecting Grayson Waller’s confrontation with Shawn Michaels to go a lot differently, but nobody expected a return for Johnny Wrestling. Now that he is back in NXT, Gargano wants to do things differently.

Once considered the heart and soul of NXT, Johnny Gargano made his way to the WWE main roster after his contract expired. He spent a few months at home, enjoying life with his family, but then it was time to get back to work. He appeared on RAW under Triple H’s new regime, a role he still fills to this day.

Although Johnny Gargano is still a main roster Superstar, Johnny Gargano is back in NXT for a big match against Grayson Waller at Stand & Deliver on April 1st. The former NXT Champion logged onto Twitter where he explained that he will close his book with NXT his own way now.

Because of you.. my story in @WWENXT ended on a cliffhanger 15 months ago.

You took my moment from me and I never forgot that. I waited patiently for the right time & place..

April 1st.. WrestleMania Weekend.. I shut you up & close the book my way.

It’s really nothing out of the ordinary to see main roster Superstars make their way to NXT. The New Day just wrapped up a run as NXT Tag Team Champions, and even before that Dolph Ziggler and Finn Balor held the NXT Title while still raking in main roster paychecks.

We will have to see how Grayson Waller vs Johnny Gargano pans out. Obviously, fans will get quite a match as both competitors bring it all to the table. Now, Johnny Gargano will also get a rare chance to end things the way he wants to with WWE’s developmental brand.
