Last updated

WWE Superstar Johnny Gargano is set to run down his NXT contract after the NXT WarGames event, but will Johnny Wrestling be leaving WWE?

According to a new report from Fightful Select, WWE are looking to try and secure the services of Gargano going forward, with AEW a viable option for the former NXT Champion should he leave.

Select wrote: “Johnny Gargano’s WWE deal is set to expire in a few weeks, and the company is making an effort to retain his services outside of a one-week extension he agreed to.

“Fightful has learned from WWE sources that contract extension talks started in October between NXT Triple Crown Champion Johnny Gargano and WWE.

“Our sources didn’t indicate one way or another whether they believe that Gargano will remain with the company, but did note that WWE wants to keep him onboard.

“[WWE] applauded his work with The Way before the group split, even mentioning that he helped progress several new stars even if he does leave” the site concluded.

It is not confirmed if Gargano will stay at this point.
