Johnny Gargano: Old NXT needed a kick

Last updated

Former WWE Superstar Johnny Gargano recently discussed the black and gold version of NXT, saying that it did need somewhat of a change.

Whilst speaking to Comicbook, Gargano said ‘It’s just one of those things where I don’t think there was any moment in particular that was like, ’˜Oh wow, things are way different now.’

“We knew that a rebrand was coming, but like anything in wrestling, things change all the time” Gargano continued. “Things constantly evolve. We just talked about earlier in this interview, how if you do something for so a certain way, things get boring and you kind of need to refreshen things sometimes.

“I think honestly, it definitely needed a little bit of a kick” the former NXT Champion admitted. “I feel like they’re incredibly happy with how things are going and you have to be happy with how some of those guys have already developed on, in front of your very own eyes.

“Like I mentioned Bron Breakker for instance. Bron Breakker’s a guy that I think I mention all the time, you can pay people to learn how to wrestle, right?” Gargano concluded.
