News of Vince McMahon's retirement shocked the WWE Universe. The now former Chairman of the company has decided to take a step back, given his age and the heavy accusations that have fallen on him in recent weeks. His role was taken over by his daughter Stephanie and Nick Khan, while Triple H was put in charge of the creative team.
A truly prestigious investiture for The Game, who retired from wrestling just before WrestleMania 38. After undergoing heart surgery in September 2021, the 14-time world champion gave up his desire to return to the ring. In addition to having a legendary career, HHH has also done a great job backstage.
Hunter has in fact contributed personally to the birth and rise of NXT, making the 'Black and Gold' brand a very valid alternative to the Raw and SmackDown shows. During a recent interview with 'Wrestling INC.' , Tommaso Ciampa was asked if Johnny Gargano's return to WWE is possible given the recent changes.
“The door has always been open for Johnny Gargano. He had left to be able to become a dad and spend more time with his family. He decided to take a break and we all respected his choice of him” - Ciampa said.
Update on Johnny Gargano
“I think there is a very good chance of seeing him again in WWE.
With Triple H at the head of the creative team, perhaps the chances are even greater. I'm sure he'll be fighting again because he loves this business and he's in great shape. Despite the long stop, he is still one of the best athletes around.
I can assure you that it is only a matter of time” - he added. Tommaso hopes to be able to explode in the coming months: “Change almost always generates excitement. Everyone has his opinions on it and I have to admit I'm quite happy.
The Game and I understand each other on the fly because we have a very similar approach to business. My expectations are really high”. When asked about a potential return to WWE to have a run on the main roster, Gargano didn't rule it out: "WWE, at the end of the day, was always the company I watched growing up," Johnny Gargano said.
"It was my dream to be there. It was my dream to wrestle for that company and I had a hell of a run there. There is a big part of me that still feels a little unfulfilled. I felt like, towards the end of my NXT run, I felt complete."
