Johnny Gargano has been pictured at the WWE Performance Center for the first time since his contract with the company expired.
The future of Johnny Gargano has been a topic of much discussion since he let his contract with WWE expire in December 2021.
While some have wondered whether Johnny Wrestling will head to AEW, others have suggested that he will eventually re-sign with WWE.
Adding further fuel to the fire regarding a new deal with WWE, Gargano was recently pictured at the Performance Center with his baby boy Quill and Diamond Mine manager Malcom Bivens.
Johnny Gargano hasn’t been seen in a wrestling ring since the December 7th edition of NXT 2.0 where he bid farewell to the show he had called home since 2015.
Three days after this appearance, Gargano let his WWE contract expire, making himself a free agent. Naturally this led to many fans hoping that the former NXT Champion would be following the likes of Adam Cole and Kyle O’Reilly to AEW.
Gargano later revealed that he had taken the decision to let his contract expire almost a year in advance, in large part to due he and his wife Candice LeRae, expecting their first baby. Quill Lewis Gargano was born on February 17th 2022.
Speaking at WrestleCon during WrestleMania 38 weekend, Gargano discussed his time in WWE and how he had never been called up to the main roster. The former NXT Champion admitted that he still feels “a little unfulfilled” at having never become part of Raw or SmackDown. He also confirmed that he still dreams of becoming Intercontinental and WWE Champion.
