Johnny Gargano has one of the biggest matches in his tenure with WWE NXT lined up.
“Johnny Wrestling” is booked to wrestle Adam Cole for the vacant WWE NXT Title in 2 of 3 Falls Match that will likely serve as the headliner of the NXT TakeOver: New York event.
While speaking with WWE’s official website, Gargano made it known that NXT is his life. He also has a goal set in mind to become the most decorated champion in the history of the yellow brand.
“NXT is my life. Plain and simple. I’ve put my heart and soul into this company, and I truly love it and its fans. I wanted to build something here and my legacy feels incomplete without that NXT Championship. It’s about more than the accolades though, it’s about what it stands for.” Gargano explained. “I want to go from a guy who was told ‘no’ at his tryout, a guy who was told he wasn’t good enough to be here, to the most decorated champion in the history of the company. I want to show the world that anything’s possible if you never stop fighting.”
WWE will hold NXT TakeOver: New York on Friday, April 5, 2019 in Brooklyn, New York at the Barclays Center and be broadcasted on their streaming service, WWE Network.
