Johnny Gargano has boldly claimed that one particular former NXT star is the most underrated wrestler in the world.
On December 10th Johnny Gargano’s WWE contract expired, and he later confirmed that he was taking a break to embrace his new job of being a father to baby Quill.
However, as everyone knows that Johnny Wrestling is only taking a break, speculation has been running riot in recent months over when and where he may return. While stepping back into NXT might seem the natural option, Gargano also has friends in AEW, and the prospect of a new challenge is always appealing.
During the conversation the former NXT Champion also reflecting on working with his wife Candice LeRae as part of The Way. Gargano said that LeRae doesn’t get the respect she deserves, and is the most underrated wrestler in the world.
[On working with Candice] “We figured it would be good. Obviously when the heel turn happened, we figured that we always had working with each other in mind, because we hadn’t had a chance to do that yet.
I was hoping too that it would skyrocket her [Candice] to an even better level as well, which it did. Because for my money, she is my favourite wrestler in the world, and I don’t have to say that. Legally I do, but the most underrated and my favourite wrestler in the world, doesn’t get the credit she deserves.”
During the interview, Johnny Wrestling also revealed that he was set to appear at WrestleMania 35, before an injury to Ciampa forced a change of plans.
