Johnny Gargano has made his feelings known about the attack just before he left NXT back in 2021.
Johnny Gargano was one of the surprise names included in the rafts of WWE releases. However, it wasn’t long in to the regime of Triple H when he made his return to the company, appearing on Monday Night RAW.
However, it was the black and gold brand where Johnny Wrestling made his name under the WWE banner, and he return to NXT on the 7th March 2023 edition of the show, being introduced as Shawn Michaels’ hand-picked opponent for Grayson Waller at Stand & Deliver.
This was a full-circle moment for Gargano, who was attacked by Waller when saying his goodbye to NXT following WarGames in December 2021, and never had the opportunity to exact his revenge.
Now, in a post on social media, Johnny Gargano has expressed how much the opportunity to gain revenge on Grayson Waller means to him.
