Currently, real-life married couple Johnny Gargano and Candice LeRae are living comfortably in Orlando as they are both part of WWE NXT.
The couple married in September of 2016 after meeting each other on the independent wrestling circuit. Gargano eventually landed in WWE back in 2015 while LeRae followed in 2017. “Johnny Wrestling” recently spoke to AZ Central and revealed how he and LeRae met backstage at an indy show in California:
“I remember [Candice] brought her cousin to the back, and they were just hanging out talking, and I decided I was going to try to get to [Candice] by talking to her cousin about her cellphone. It didn’t really work that well, but we developed a friendship.”
Gargano also talked about NXT drawing hardcore professional wrestling fans and being a true nerd at heart in his full interview with AZ Central. You can check out the full conversation by clicking here.
