Johnny Gargano Names His Favourite WWE NXT TakeOver Matches
He isn't called 'Johnny TakeOver' for nothing...
Johnny Gargano has named his three favourite matches from his historic run at WWE NXT TakeOver.
Gargano has earned the nickname 'Johnny TakeOver' for often stealing the show at the NXT events, and the former North American champion has now revealed his three favourite outings from his illustrious history of TakeOver bouts.
Speaking to Rasslin’ with Brandon F. Walker, Gargano said: "My match with Andrade, obviously, is my number one and was really my breakout moment.
"My match with Andrade, that night was just magic from the Philadelphia crowd, to the atmosphere, to just Andrade in general, just the story behind it, everything kind of worked in our favor that night. And Candice LeRae and Zelina Vega obviously. That match will forever hold a special place in my heart, and this is coming from someone who hates all his own matches.
"For story reasons, my match with Tommaso Ciampa at TakeOver New Orleans. I don’t think I will ever be part of an atmosphere like that, like ever. Just because I have never heard another crowd react to Tommaso, or a crowd react to another wrestler, like they reacted to Tommaso that night. Everyone in the building, literally everyone, from the front row to the tippy tippy top, everyone hated that man that night.
“During that era it was insane. I remember sitting in gorilla and watching his entrance and being like, ‘Oh my god, I have never experienced something like this before.’ So that is up there for me, and my match with Adam Cole at TakeOver New York in a 2 Out of 3 Falls is another one for me. So those three are always my go-tos."
