Johnny Gargano Reportedly 'Considering His Options' Amidst Impending WWE Contract Expiration
Gargano's WWE deal expires next month
Johnny Gargano's exit from WWE is not certain, despite his contract expiring in December, with the NXT star reportedly 'considering all options'.
Gargano's WWE deal was due to expire on December 3 but the former NXT Champion has signed a one-week extension with the promotion in order to see through the storyline commitments he currently has, which involve competing at NXT WarGames on Sunday 5 December.
Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer says WWE are eager for Gargano to sign a new, multi-year deal, but he is strongly considering his options.
Meltzer said: "His contract is up December 3rd. He signed a one week extension to December 10th so he could do the WarGames show and finish up the storyline.
"It is not 100 percent [that] he is leaving by any means. He is considering his options but obviously, he has not signed a contract. They did not offer him a 7-day contract. They want him to sign a multi-year contract and he has not done that and the fact that he has not tells you that he is certainly exploring all options.
"There’s a lot to think about from his perspective. It’s not as open and shut as some people because to me Adam Cole was open and shut. There was only one decision for Adam Cole to make…Gargano, there’s probably two decisions and I don’t know which way he’s going. If he was leaning strongly towards staying, they probably would have talked him into singing and that has not happened. It’s up in the air."
