Right now Johnny Gargano, who left WWE in December 2021, is a free agent and the proud dad of the baby he recently had with his wife Candice LeRae. Over the Starrcast V weekend, the boy took part in an on-stage show called "What 's Next?", Where he talked openly about his love for NXT Black & Gold and Triple H, who is now the creative leader in WWE.
Asked about the potential return to WWE with Triple H now at the helm, Gargano replied, “Everyone loves Hunter. This time in my life has given me the unique opportunity to sit down and analyze what the landscape is as a whole.
If I had made up my mind immediately, who knows what would have happened? The thing is, I told myself I was going to sit down, see what happens, and make a decision based on that. I love the things that are happening in both places [WWE and AEW ed].
There are pros and cons, did you understand it? Against [cons] and Khans, pun. I love what both places are doing”.
Backstage news on Johnny Gargano
One of the few who still lacked to have his say on the future of former NXT Champion Johnny Gargano was his longtime friend, who also became a bitter rival in the WWE rings, Tommaso Ciampa, who has now been joined by The Miz in the rings of Monday Night Raw.
In his latest interview with SEScoops, Ciampa wanted to talk about what he thinks of Gargano's return to the ring, saying: "We are 100% likely to see Gargano in the ring once again. I don't know which ring. I think it is difficult to say now "In practice, even Tommaso Ciampa is certain: Johnny Gargano will return to wrestling, as he is in his nature, but it is not yet known at the moment in the rings of which great federation he will do it, if in WWE, in AEW or who knows what other major worldwide promotion.
Could Triple H manage to make him another of his former NXT wards after the return of Dexter Lumis, Dakota Kai and Karrion Kross? Gargano recently teased that he and his wife Candice LeRae could make a return to the ring at the Asylum Virtual Signing event when a fan asked whether he noticed how Triple H was running WWE and bringing back former talents: "I've seen.
I've noticed. It's exciting times all around. You never know what could happen. Keep watching, we're [Candice & I] going to show up at some point, wherever that may be... I promise. We will. We'll be making some magic at some point in the future, I promise."
