Chris Van Vliet is that includes an interview with Johnny Gargano over WrestleMania 34 weekend in New Orleans following his match with Tommaso Ciampa at NXT TakeOver.
Gargano discusses a variety of subjects together with the WWE main roster, comparisons of his character to Daniel Bryan, the Johnny Wrestling nickname and extra.
Here are some highlights from the interview.
If he’s involved his character will probably be watered down when he will get known as up the main roster:
“People are really worried about that. I get that on Twitter a lot that people like ‘I don’t want to see Johnny go to the main roster because he’s going to get messed up’. Look, I’m just me. I’m just Johnny Gargano. I’m the same Johnny Gargano I always have been so if you see anything I’ve done in NXT, you’re seeing the real me and they’ve treated me very good so I have no worries about where we’re going in the future.”
Being in contrast to Daniel Bryan:
“I get a lot of comparisons to Daniel Bryan and trust me, I am flattered by all of them because we mentioned New Orleans and WrestleMania, I watched it at home and watched Daniel Bryan in the main event of WrestleMania achieve his dreams. I’ve said this numerous times, I’ve been in the ring with Daniel Bryan and he’s the best wrestler in the world, bar none. So to be able to see him come back this year, and I know he recently said in an interview that he wanted me to lose so he could steal me to go on Smackdown Live which I very much appreciate. I’m going to give him a raincheck on that one because I still have a couple of things I want to accomplish in NXT.”
Working along with his spouse Candice LeRae in NXT:
“It’s amazing how everything has worked out. It’s literally a dream come true to be in the position I’m in. To be able to main event Takeovers but also to have my wife there with me now . Candice has worked just as hard as I have if not harder. Especially for what she did on the indies, she was an absolute trendsetter. So me being biased as her husband, I’m pumped to see her in NXT so I can be with her, but as a pure wrestling fan I am so excited to see her in NXT because she’s one of the best wrestlers in the world.”
How and why he reworked his physique:
“I went away for a little bit after Tommaso turned his back on me. I’m always of the mindset that when you come back you have to be better than yourself and that’s my mindset from watching Triple H who went away and tore his quad and came back with those “Beautiful Day” movies and appeared like one million . You can’t go away for a very long time and are available again trying worse. You simply can’t try this. I spotted in myself, look I’m a small man, I’m by no means going to be 250 kilos, I’m by no means going to be 6’5″, however I can get as jacked and as lean as humanly potential. And fortunately sufficient for no matter motive I genetically have nice abs. So I made a decision to go all in on being lean and going all in placing my finest foot ahead and searching the perfect I can. I employed a nutritionist, Austin Current on Instagram, he’s working with lots of people now in WWE as a result of they noticed how effectively it labored for me and folks had been like give me your nutritionist’s information as a result of it really works. That together with Sean Hayes on the Performance Center who has superb exercises and bought me to the place I must be.”
How Johnny Manziel impressed his nickname “Johnny Wrestling”:
“It was just a tweet that I sent out one day when Johnny Manziel was still in college and the Johnny Football thing was starting to catch fire. I just randomly said, if he can be Johnny Football why can’t I be Johnny Wrestling? And then like the next weekend at shows I started getting Johnny Wrestling chants and the weekend after that I got Johnny Wrestling chants and they kept getting bigger and bigger. And as soon as the NXT thing happened, it blew up. It was inspired off Johnny Manziel because I am a Cleveland Browns fan so I was pumped about Manziel Mania coming to town but now it’s taken on a life of its own and people don’t even make that correlation anymore.”
