Johnny Gargano Wants Buddy Cop Movie With WWE NXT's Samoa Joe
Okay, now we want it too...
Johnny Gargano has joked he has pitched a buddy-cop movie starring him and Samoa Joe to management at WWE.
Joe returned to WWE NXT last month after being released by the promotion in April. The Samoan Submission Machine has taken up an enforcer role within the black-and-gold brand, teasing confrontations with the likes of Karrion Kross, Adam Cole, Pete Dunne and Gargano himself.
The former NXT North American Champion has hailed Joe's experience and knowledge and also revealed, after a segment on NXT two weeks ago, has been talking up the chance of starring in a WWE Studios buddy-cop film with Joe.
Speaking to SportsKeeda Wrestling, Gargano said: "Obviously to have a mind like Samoa Joe...to have a guy like Samoa Joe who is an absolute legend. You can't replace what he knows and you can't replace his insight, and obviously as a character. He has been so fun to have on the show.
"I pitched that after he saved me from getting runover by a motor-vehicle that obviously there is a buddy-cop movie in the future. Me and Samoa Joe, buddy cop movie! I think it writes itself! So...I'm gonna keep pitching. I know we've got a movie studio, so I'll see what I can do!"
