Johnny Gargano Doesn't Know 'Where He Fits' In Current Wrestling Landscape

Johnny Gargano hasn’t wrestled since leaving WWE NXT 2.0 in December 2021

Johnny Gargano hasn’t wrestled since his exit from WWE NXT 2.0, and despite being the hottest free-agent on the market, the former NXT Champion doesn’t know where he fits in with the current wrestling landscape.

Gargano is currently enjoying being a father after wife Candice LeRae gave birth to their first child, but as he told Chris Van Vliet on Insight, that hasn’t stopped him watching a lot of wrestling and pondering his future in the business:

“My options are 100% open,” Gargano said. “And I watch everything, honestly. You can watch my YouTube video, I watch – me and Candice were watching AEW laying in the hospital room. We were watching NXT laying in the hospital room. We were watching Elimination Chamber laying in the hospital room. I literally watch everything. I’m a wrestling fan at the end of the day, and I enjoy good wrestling. I really enjoy watching my friends be successful. That makes me very, very happy.

“I don’t know really where I fit in right now in the wrestling landscape. But I also feel like the wrestling landscape changes not on a monthly, but a weekly basis. Especially in this current time period. You never know what’s going to happen next. It’s one of the things where a new company could pop up, this person’s going to be in charge, or this person’s going to do this, or this person’s going to do that, or AEW’s doing this, or ROH is doing this, NXT is doing this. It literally changes on a weekly basis.”

‘Johnny Wrestling’ admitted that he hasn’t given up hope of one day wrestling at WrestleMania:

“I don’t know when that will come, or if that will come,” Gargano explained. “I’ve said numerous times that I have a great relationship there [WWE]. But I’ve just got to figure out what’s going to be worth it for me, what sacrifices am I going to have to make, to make that happen, especially now with Quill being around and being born. I don’t want to miss his time.”
