Johnny Gargano Thought Bobby Roode's 'Glorious' Was WWE's Cruiserweight Classic Theme
Gargano was gutted
Johnny Gargano has opened up on how he and Tommaso Ciampa started doing the 'Glorious Bomb', revealing it came from his belief that Bobby Roode's theme music was the song WWE were using for The Cruiserweight Classic.
Speaking on his Twitch Stream, Gargano recalled: "When it was a Cruiserweight Classic. We were all practicing that Cruiserweight Classic. If you remember it, it was kind of a parade where we would all walk out and stand in the aisle. We were rehearsing that the night before really late. And they played the glorious song. And we all thought it was for the Cruiserweight Classic.
"We love the song. We fell in love with it immediately. Then we realize it wasn't for the Cruiserweight Classic, it was for Bobby, but we still love the song. So I just remember, me and Tommaso, kind of came up with the idea at the gym. We were like, Hey, Bobby, we're gonna do this thing called the 'Glorious Bomb', where we play the song, just raise it up and just kind of nod at the camera or something.
"So we did it at the gym and it blew up online and the social media guy came up to us like, Hey, this is like a thing. This is like a big thing.' We're like, 'Oh, okay, I guess we got to do this more.' So we started doing more like in the hotel and Bobby was a great sport too because we were like, 'Hey Bobby, just stand here for a minute and we're gonna do it.'"
