Johnny Gargano is fresh off the match of his career against Andrade “Cien” Almas at NXT TakeOver: Philadelphia. Even though he may not have thought a whole lot of that match, it was met with universal acclaim, and Johnny Wrestling is currently riding the biggest wave of momentum he’s ever had. Everybody loves Johnny!
If you didn’t happen to follow Gargano’s pre-NXT career, he was one of the most in-demand and decorated indie wrestlers on the scene before he signed with WWE full-time. As such, he’s worked all over the world, and with pretty much anyone you can think of. And he’s not that far removed from today’s current indie scene, so you’d better believe he’s keeping tabs on the talent that’s out there.
So Gargano might know better than just about anyone else who should be on the radar of the talent scouts at NXT.
