Here’s When Johnny Gargano Will Probably Wrestle Again

Here’s When Johnny Gargano Will Probably Wrestle Again

As reported earlier, Johnny Gargano is now a free agent after his WWE contract expired at midnight yesterday (December 9).

The question many fans are now asking is where next for the former NXT Champion, but it seems we may have to wait a few months to find out.

Writing in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reports Gargano will likely wait until his wife Candice LeRae gives birth to their first child in 2022 before making a decision about his future in wrestling.

The report reads:

“Both were given offers for new deals by WWE and neither signed the deal, although Gargano’s deal, which expired two days before the show, signed a one-week extension. Gargano will be a free agent on December 11 and then legally able to listen to and accept offers. From a legal standpoint, he could start work anywhere right after, although the indication is that he’s likely going to wait for his wife, Candice LeRae, to give birth, with the expected date being in February, before he returns to the ring.”

Gargano’s final WWE appearance came this past Tuesday night on NXT 2.0, when he was attacked by Grayson Waller during his farewell promo.

This is just a report as of right now, and so if Gargano does show up earlier than next February, plans changed, brother.
