Johnny Gargano: Bio

After becoming one of the top stars on the independent scene, Johnny Gargano is out to make a name for himself on the worldwide stage in NXT.

The Superstar known as Johnny Wrestling first arrived at NXT in September 2015, when he and Tommaso Ciampa were invited to take part in the inaugural Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic by NXT General Manager William Regal. The pair of free agents sent shockwaves through the NXT Universe when they defeated the team of Tyler Breeze & Bull Dempsey.

Since then, Gargano has taken on the best NXT has to offer, including Samoa Joe and Baron Corbin. He has shown no fear in battling the nastiest brawlers, demonstrating that, in addition to his wrestling ability, he has a ton of heart.

As a team, Gargano and Ciampa have made a huge impact, defeating duos like The Vaudevillains. At NXT TakeOver: Toronto, #DIY defeated The Revival in a 2-out-of-3 Falls Match — voted NXT’s Match of the Year — to win the NXT Tag Team Championship. Although The Authors of Pain overpowered #DIY at TakeOver: San Antonio, Gargano and Ciampa have proven through their resilience that it’s only a matter of time until they can once again reach the mountain top.
