Johnny Gargano admits going to another company ‘crossed his mind’

Last updated

Johnny Gargano was believed to be AEW bound when he left WWE last year. It was only after the recent regime change that people started accepting the possibility of a potential return. Gargano himself admits that he thought about the possibility of going to the other side but ultimately decided to make a WWE comeback.

Gargano was asked this question during his recent After The Bell (H/t Fightful) appearance. He explained that he was just trying to enjoy himself during his time off:

“Obviously, it crossed my mind, but I was at the point to where I wasn’t ready to come back yet. I was enjoying myself. I have people that work around me that go out and talk to other places, and I have a great team around me that have those discussions so I don’t have to.”

Johnny Gargano admitted that the thought of joining AEW crossed his mind. Speaking of his return, Gargano explained that he always dreamed of becoming the WWE Champion:

“It always just came back down to, and I said this in my return promo, when I was a kid, I dreamed of being Intercontinental Champion. I dreamed of being WWE Champion and wrestling at WrestleMania. Those things hold so much weight to me. I don’t know if 20-30 years down the line, if I could forgive myself for not trying.”
