Johnny Gargano is currently injured. He is the other half of #DIY. This report comes to us by the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. Johnny Gargano is the current NXT Champion and according to the report, his knee is injured. Unfortunately, we do not know much about the injury.
The injury may have happened somewhere in March. The last time we saw Johnny work a house show was on the 8th of March. Even in the recent NXT Tapings, Johnny wasn’t working all that much. He was part of a few tag team matches, but he wasn’t getting physical for longer durations.
Even though he is injured, reports suggest that he will be able to take on Adam Cole at an NXT TakeOver event. The event is going to take place on the 1st of June at Bridgeport, CT. At the moment, we do not know about his schedule or what he will do after the event.
This injury may be the reason why Johnny is currently working as a producer. He even spoke about not being complacent on his Twitter account. He expressed a desire to work different roles within the industry. He wrote: “The #1 killer of success is complacency.
Especially when it comes to this job.. there's just so many different sides and intricacies to it, you can always get better and learn something new. I get the chance to wear a different hat this weekend! @WWENXT #JohnnyProducing? 🤔”
