• Former NXT Champion Returning To WWE?

Former NXT Champion Johnny Gargano left WWE in December when his contract expired and he hasn’t wrestled anywhere since.

According to Fightful Select, 2-time WWE Hall Of Famer Shawn Michaels (who currently books NXT 2.0) has been given the task to get in touch with Gargano and convince him to return to a Triple H-led WWE.

WWE Hall Of Famer Road Dogg thinks there’s a good chance that Gargano returns to WWE and joins the main roster, now that Triple H is running the creative process.

Below is what the D-Generation X member said on his podcast:

“Vince, and everybody kind of knows, had an idea of what his wrestler looked like and it was Hulk Hogan, it was The Rock, it was Stone Cold. It was big, brawny, attractive, or hideous, whatever it is, but a bigger guy.

Hunter is more of a wrestlers’ guy, a wrestling guy. He likes people that can wrestle really well.

Look, Johnny Gargano would never be on Vince’s show, but there’s a good chance he’s on Hunter’s show, because he’s really good at wrestling.

I don’t think [Vince McMahon and Triple H] see things that differently. I just think they see things — one was a promoter and then became the owner of a company and then one was just a top guy talent who learned from the school of hard knocks by being a top guy and working under Vince as to how to make business decisions and some life decisions, too, I would imagine.

So, I think they both have very similar leadership strategies and we’ll get into that a little later but as far as talent, look, Vince likes a bigger guy and Hunter likes a better wrestler.”
