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.

2/21/2013: Hey Gran,

What type of first name is “Gran” anyway? Did your Dad just get really lazy while filling out your birth certificate or something? Nonsensical first names aside…what are you crying about now? I swear, every single word out of your mouth anymore is “I used to do this,” “I was a part of that”…

This is a “what have you done for me lately” business, Akuma, and all you’ve done for anyone lately is sit at home, kick things, eat Cheetos (you look like a guy who enjoys a good Cheeto,) and watch me steal the show on CHIKARA’s iPPVs.

Yes, you were kicked out of F.I.S.T., the group you helped form. Yes, I took your spot. Just get over it! Move on, Granpa. You’re like the clingy ex-girlfriend that creeps on your Facebook, and just can’t accept the fact that it’s over. Sure, you had a good run, had some good times, but F.I.S.T. just outgrew you, Akuma. You’re a 5 – 5 & 1/2 tops, and they dumped you for a perfect 10, my man. Look at yourself, and then look at me…can you blame them?

Man, for a “Mysterious, Mythological Warrior from Afar!” you sure are bitter…but, you know what? The fact that you managed to actually pin me in that 3-on-1 Handicap Match still has me a tad bit bitter. So you want me in Tampa? You got it. You say that you were the guy that made people initially fear F.I.S.T.? Well, I’m most certainly not afraid of you. You better clean that cheese off your fingers, pal, because you have no idea what’s in store for you in a few weeks, and what was that you said? Pretty boys rarely grow up to be tough guys? Aw, that’s adorable. I am a good looking boy, but on March 8th, this ravishing lad is going to show you why we kicked you out of F.I.S.T. in the first place.

You just can’t hang with the kid.

12/27/2012: Season 11 was really weird.

The first thing you’re probably thinking is – it’s weird that F.I.S.T. didn’t win King of Trios. I totally agree.

What makes it even weirder is that we had a new guy in the mix, assigned to us by the Director of Fun himself.

Sugar Dunkerton was given a spot in the world’s most dangerous trio. He didn’t earn that spot. It was just given to him. We’re the most decorated threesome in CHIKARA history. Go check Wikipedia. It’s all right there. Well, we were.

But when you assign us one of the losingest guys on the roster, guess what? Even the very best of us can get dragged down.

Our waterboy should refresh us. Instead, I am feeling anything but fresh.

It’s 1:17 AM as I sit here and type this. We’re coming up on EVOLVE 18 this weekend in New Jersey, and I’ve done what seems to be 100’s of podcasts, and radio interviews this past week promoting the show, and what not. Everyone seems to be asking all the same questions, and I’d like to touch on a few of those subjects right now.
