Johnny Gargano

Former NXT Champion Johnny Gargano has announced his first wrestling appearance since he left WWE after his contract expired in December 2021.

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. 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.

Now Johnny Gargano has taken to social media to announce his first post-WWE appearance as he is set to make his debut appearance at WrestleCon:

“Doing signings at Axxess was one of my favorite parts of Wrestlemania weekend (so much so that I would always ask to do extra sessions if someone couldn’t do it) Believe it or not.. I’ve never done a @wrestlecon! So it felt like a good time.. Excited to see all of you in Dallas!”

There is no update on Johnny Gargano’s in-ring future with a previous report suggesting that Johnny Wrestling won’t be showing up in AEW imminently.
