Johnny Gargano returned home
ORLANDO, Fla. — Johnny Wrestling is back! After triumphing against Tommaso Ciampa in a barbaric Unsanctioned Match at TakeOver: New Orleans, the newly reinstated Johnny Gargano, accompanied by wife Candice LeRae, returned to Full Sail University, where he received a hero’s welcome. Gargano thanked the NXT Universe for their continued support, as well as Candice, noting that he couldn’t have endured the rollercoaster events of the past few months without her by his side.
Candice Wrestling said that one last bit of unsettled business remained: Getting even with NXT-turned-SmackDown Superstars Zelina Vega & Andrade “Cien” Almas. Candice said she would take care of that later in the night when she battled Vega one-on-one, and Gargano added that he’d stand ready to wipe out El Idolo if the former NXT Champion involved himself in the match.
Before NXT’s first couple left, Gargano had one final message to deliver, making clear that he intended to be the first challenger to new NXT Champion Aleister Black. By the end of the night, Gargano would get his answer from The Dutch Destroyer.
