WWE star Ciampa believes fans will see Johnny Gargano in a wrestling ring again, but doesn’t know where.
Ciampa was called up to the main roster in April 2022 after nearly seven years on the NXT brand.
During his time on the brand, the two-time NXT Champion became connected to Johnny Gargano in their memorable partnership as DIY and eventual critically acclaimed rivalry.
Speaking with SEScoops, Ciampa discussed Gargano’s status and the possibility of a comeback after his departure from WWE at the end of 2021.
“You are one hundred percent going to see [Johnny Gargano] in a ring again. I don’t know which ring. I would think it’s tough to say. I don’t know if Candice [LeRae] is interested in wrestling again or not.
It’s a lot of decisions to be made with a child at home. He has got to be getting close to wrestling somewhere. The itch has got to be getting there. We’re almost at a year in now since he has been in the ring. I think at some point he’ll make his way back to WWE. I feel like everyone does at some point. Never say never.”
Johnny Gargano has been away from the professional wrestling world since his WWE contract expiring in December 2021.
The former NXT Champion has focused on the birth of his and fellow former WWE star Candice LeRae’s first child in February 2022.
Meanwhile, Ciampa has seen a renewed push since the regime change in WWE with his partnership with The Miz on Raw and recent United States Championship match against Bobby Lashley.
