WWE Raw Star Makes Huge NXT Return
The last time Johnny Gargano was seen in NXT, he was giving his farewell and thank you address as his time on the brand and in NXT came to an end, but now Johnny Wrestling is back where he belongs.
Grayson Waller has been a thorn in the side of NXT head honcho Shawn Michaels in recent weeks, even earning a suspension for interrupting Michaels during a press conference.
Things came to a head at NXT Roadblock as Shawn Michaels appeared on the Grayson Waller Effect. As Waller continued to vent his spleen at Michaels, the WWE Hall of Famer looked to have had enough but said there was one person who wanted to teach Waller a lesson more than him, bringing out Johnny Gargano.
Gargano waved goodbye to the brand where he made his name in WWE back in December 2021 as the developmental show went through an overhaul and NXT 2.0 came to prominence. Johnny Gargano’s emotional goodbye just so happened to be interrupted by Grayson Waller who took out Gargano in a vicious attack. That led to Gargano leaving WWE and was a way to write him off television although now that attack will be paid off in a match.
Johnny Gargano and Grayson Waller will go one-on-one at NXT Stand & Deliver on April 1st. That show takes place in the afternoon of the first day of WrestleMania 39.
