The former NXT Champion Johnny Gargano had been an integral part of the black and gold brand. Back in December last year, Gargano had made it clear that his contract had expired and he would depart the company. He soon parted ways with the company. He noted during Starrcast V that he was still undecided about his future in wrestling.
Johnny Gargano will choose between WWE and AEW
Triple H might be an important factor that might draw Gargano to WWE. According to Cassidy Haynes of Bodyslam.net, ‘Johnny Wrestling’ has been in talks with AEW but is also open to a WWE return now that Triple H is in charge of the creative process.
According to a source of Haynes, Gargano wasn’t a fan of the grind (especially with a newborn) and an “overarching factor for him walking away was dissatisfaction with his position/direction with no set plan for how he’d be used.” It was added that Gargano would be interested in talking to Triple H and “seeing how things would be changing.”
Gargano recently teased fans by saying to “keep watching” and added that “you never know what could happen.” Gargano said the following on Twitter about turning 35…
“It’s been said that 35 is when most pro wrestlers really start hitting their ‘prime’ years.. Inside the ring I can’t confirm that just yet.. but outside of it.. I know for a fact that these are definitely my ‘prime’ years! ”
