WWE NXT Superstar Johnny Gargano is reportedly close to being out of contract with the company. Fightful Select recently confirmed that the former NXT Champion may be on his way out of the promotion very shortly.

“Fightful learned that NXT Triple Crown Champion Johnny Gargano’s WWE contract is expiring December 3, 2021. WWE sources confirmed the news with Fightful Select directly.

“Thus far, WWE sources have indicated to Fightful that Johnny Gargano and WWE have not entered into negotiations to extend his contract, but that WWE “expected to” in the Fall.”

It is interesting that WWE has not as of yet actually begun discussing a new deal with Johnny Gargano, who may well decide to ply his trade elsewhere and move on to the likes of AEW, New Japan, MLW or ROH.

There’s a good chance that Gargano would head to AEW should he decide to finish out his deal with WWE.

The company is continuously growing with a stacked roster of former independent talent and Johnny Wrestling would certainly fit right into the landscape and ethos of the company.

Will Johnny Gargano be leaving WWE?
