Johnny Gargano set to leave WWE NXT amid rumours

Last updated

WWE NXT Superstar Johnny Gargano is expected to be leaving the company this week, following his team’s loss at the NXT WarGames event this past weekend.

According to a new report from Fightful Select, there are those in WWE that cannot see Gargano or Kyle O’Reilly re-signing, with the former Undisputed Era member also set to run out his contract shortly.

“We’re told that many within the company are operating on the assumption that neither man will be around after this week” the site confirmed.

“Both have been offered multi-year deals and were brought to Smackdown a couple of weeks ago, and it has been communicated to both men that the company wants to retain their services.

“Some talent we spoke to said they personally weren’t giving their farewells to the two just yet because they expect to see both men backstage at Tuesday’s NXT.

“It was not specified if they’re booked for this week’s NXT, but one source high up within WWE indicated to Fightful that their “worst-case scenario” looked like even if they re-signed both, one would take some time off” Fightful concluded.

Will Johnny Gargano leave NXT?
