WWE has posted an update on Johnny Gargano following the show closing angle that took place at Saturday’s NXT Takeover: Chicago. The storyline update is that “Gargano is believed to be suffering from neck and back problems” as a result of the attack from his former best friend/tag team partner Tommaso Ciampa.
They went on to say that the extent of his injuries are unknown because Gargano is refusing to talk to anyone. There was a nice added touch to all of this when Gargano’s wife/independent wrestler Candice LeRae posted a statement on her Twitter account.
It looks like they will keep Gargano and Ciampa off NXT TV for a while so they can sell the angle. The next logical step in this storyline is for them to face each other at NXT Takeover: Brooklyn III. There’s plenty of time left before that show takes place so it would make sense to keep them off TV for a few weeks.
