It’s an option. We are in a new era in the wrestling world as there is now a second major wrestling promotion. WWE has dominated the landscape for decades but now we have another option available in the form of AEW. Several wrestlers have either already jumped or seem likely to do so. Now it seems that the list of former WWE stars on the AEW roster might be growing soon.
According to Wrestling Observer Radio, former NXT Champion Johnny Gargano is said to be “heavily considering” signing with AEW. Gargano has spoken about wanting to face various AEW wrestlers, including Kenny Omega. As Gargano’s WWE contract expired, he could show up in AEW at any time, with the possibility of a debut in his hometown in Cleveland, Ohio on January 26 being seen as a possibility.
Gargano is a heck of a star. Check out his time in NXT:
Opinion: I don’t think this is any kind of a surprise as Gargano is someone who would be sought after by just about anyone. AEW would seem like a great fit for him and seem to have just about everything Gargano could want in a promotion. Maybe the Cleveland show is a perfect fit, but even if he doesn’t show up there, it is hard to imagine Gargano not there at some point.
Do you think Gargano will head to AEW? Do you want him to? Let us know in the comments below.
