Mini Biography: Johnny Gargano's infatuation with wrestling skyrocketed at the age of eight-years-old, when he first stepped inside of a wrestling ring. Eight years later, the Ohio native would enroll in Cleveland All–Pro Wrestling's school, and since then the independent sensation has yet to quit. Making his professional wrestling debut in 2005, Johnny Gargano has since then torn through the independent wrestling world - making his name prominent in companies such as Dragon Gate USA and Chikara. Now he has made his way to WWE NXT, regularly teaming with good friend Tommaso Ciampa as well as being a competitor in the first ever Cruiserweight Classic. There is only one place for him - the top. Johnny Gargano is "All Heart" and has a long history to prove it.

Ethan Page and Johnny Gargano have a past within wrestling, obviously. These two men never know when to stop fighting each other. October 9th at Jawbreaker in Chicago, IL for AAW? Was no different.

Johnny challenged All EGO for the AAW championship.. it was a two out of three falls match. Was Johnny lucky to head home with a heavier suitcase? Read below.

Another Friday down, this time Johnny spent it at 115 Bourbon Street in Merrionette Park, IL for AAW! Check out the results below and maybe even see a match announced for their October show!

Johnny Gargano defeated Chris Hero after 25 minutes, making him tap out to the Garga-NO Escape.

Later on, after Ethan Page vs Matt Cross, Gargano saves Cross from Shane Sabre and Page, issuing a challenge to Ethan for Jawbreaker on October 9th. The Heavyweight Champion ups the ante: 2/3 Falls!

The fans of AAW better know just how lucky they were to attend Bound by Hate 2015.


They got to witness Johnny Gargano versus Matt Sydal and we’re certainly upset that we didn’t get to be there to see the action in person.

But the winner? Other than the fans of course..

Johnny Gargano made Matt Sydal tap out to the Garga-NO Escape.

Racking up wins like nobodys business. Congratulations!

AAW just continues to put out such a stellar product that it baffles us when people say they don’t watch it. You should be watching it. Take our word for it!

Another night in AAW led to a championship match and something a little questionable.. we shall see where it all goes but for now? Here are the results courtesy of PWPonderings.

Backstage promo with Johnny Gargano turns into a promo with Kingston and Hollister in which it appears they may be teaming in the future.

Unfortunately due to flooding back home, the scheduled match for Johnny versus Davey Richards didn’t happen. We’re sure they’ll meet up in ring again soon!

However, that doesn’t mean that Johnny had nothing to do at AAW on June 19th on 115 Bourbon Street in Illinois.

Oh no, he faced someone he’s rather familiar with: Zema Ion.

Described as a quality match by those in attendance, we’re sure they aren’t lying. Two talented men going at it in ring? Absolute perfection we wish we could witness. But who came out the winner?

Johnny Wrestling himself! Ion tapped out to the Garga-NO Escape. We’re sure it’s coming soon in AIW, too. ;).

Congratulations, dude!

Do you hear about a match and get incredibly jealous of everyone who actually got to attend see the gloriousness live? Cause we know we do.

That’s how we felt when Johnny wrestled Chris Sabin at AAW on May 1st.

We heard they blew the roof off the place, which was not shocking because the amount of talent in the ring.. but still.

Who came out on top?

Johnny of course! 115 Bourbon Street better be some of his biggest fans.

It was the night before SHIMMER weekend, and all through the Berwyn Eagles Club, the sounds were loud. AAW stopped by, the crowd was wild.

Alright, I give up, this isn’t going anywhere. Anyway!

AAW the night before SHIMMER weekend was full of craziness.

Johnny was riiight in the middle, teaming with some other great talents from Ohio in OI4K to face off against ACH, Davey Vega and Mat Fitchett.

And wouldn’t you know it, Johnny and OI4K won when Gargano submitted Fitchett.

Good ol’ AAW. Always there when you need ’em. March 21st was the date, Berwyn Eagles Club was the location and the event was sure to draw out an amazing crowd.

This leads us to the match that Johnny was in. Against someone he knows rather well, actually. Josh Alexander.

He’s a big deal. You should know in advance that he’s challenged Samoa Joe for their next event in April. Holy cow.

But back to Johnny/Josh.

They faced off and Johnny lost after being put away by a spinning tombstone.

Ah, rats. We’re sure you’ll get him next time!
