Johnny Gargano's career at NXT has surprised both fans and insiders, wondering when Johnny decides to go to the WWE main roster. During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, Gargano spoke about the advices of a legend like Shawn Michaels in recent years.
“Yes. Shawn Michaels has always been a hero of mine, he was painted on my wall growing up. To be able to work with him and pick his brain is truly the best-case scenario. When I moved to Orlando, it was my first time moving from Cleveland.
"You never know what to expect. But to be able to go and work with Shawn Michaels and learn from him, it’s just mind-blowing. And not just Shawn, but also Triple H, as well. Their minds work on a different level, and you can tell why NXT is as interesting as it is and why stories are so compelling."
"They are running the show. It’s a dream come true. If you told me when I was eight years old that one day I’d work for WWE with an action figure and work as an ambassador for a video game, and also work side-by-side with Shawn Michaels and Triple H, I would have said, ‘You’re crazy!’ But here we are, and it’s amazing.”
