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.

This weekend, EVOLVE returned to New York. Deer Park, to be specific. And it’s Johnny’s last EVOLVE matches.. we’re shedding a bunch of tears here. We’re serious. EVOLVE/WWN has been such an important part of Johnny’s career and the amount of feelings we have regarding all of this? It’s a lot.

His is more, of course.

September 10th, he was scheduled to face off against Zack Sabre Jr, in a rematch of sorts. We’ve got the results & review from PWPonderings, so make sure you go check out the rest of the show review and check out WWNLive.com to order the replay! (We also suggest ordering tonight’s show – his last one. Cry with us. Click anywhere here to do that.)

After Zabre Jr. came to the ring and was followed by his opponent, Johnny Gargano. The crowd regaled Gargano with chants of Johnny Wrestling and Thank You Johnny, showing appreciation for the departing WWN Icon. At this point in the night, the heat in New York played its part in the match, as the two men were dripping before the bell rang. How Sabre Jr. kept his Union Jack jacket out is beyond comprehension.

The two men playfully challenged each other for much of the match, with Gargano hesitant to simply lock up with Sabre Jr. The match continued to have this playfulness between the two men until the two sat on the mat across from each other and began to slap each other. The slaps grew violent and prompt both men to take the match a bit more seriously. Both men were able to hit their signature spots, with Gargano connecting with a spear and a slingshot DDT, but this was not to be Johnny’s night, as Sabre Jr. forced him to tap out for the submission victory.

After the match Sabre Jr. grabbed a mic and he thanked Garagano for all he has done to helped build EVOLVE and intimated that he would be staying in the company himself as he has decided that it is what is best for his career right now. Ricochet joined the two and equally lauded Gargano for not just being a good wrestler, but a better person outside the ring. The three embraced and Gargano even called Sapolsky to the ring for a brief embrace that epitomized the true friendship they share. The fans chanted for Gargano as the show ended, but not before he circled the arena one last time to high five his supports.

Melrose, MA. Galloway vs. Gargano. A grudge match if you’ve ever seen one. As always, it was broadcast on WWNLive.com and you can catch the replay/VOD now. We suggest it. If you can’t, below are results!

Thanks to those at PWPonderings for ’em!

Drew Galloway vs. Johnny Gargano

Galloway defeated Gargano in their first ever bout to unite the Evolve and Open the United Gate titles. Then Gargano won by disqualification when EC3 interfered. Immediate superkick and dive by Gargano. I’m glad they didn’t start out exchanging wristlocks. Gargano continues kicking Galloway’s ass until a kick turns the tide. He sets up for the slingshot under the ring similar to what he did to Gulak the previous night. Slingshot goes through. Some heavy strikes by Galloway. To the top rope. Gargano squirms out and hits a superkick to the knee. Backcracker. Roll through and the superkick. Superman spear. 1-2-NO! Powerbomb by Galloway. Gargano sends Galloway into the post and then hits a huge DDT. Slingshot DDT for two. Series of chops in the corner. Lawn dart countered. Enziguri anyway by Gargano. Electric chair into the face plant by Galloway. GargaNo Escape applied by Galloway. Gargano reverses the hold. Galloway sent into the corner. GargaNo Escape applied again. Boot and Future Shock DDT for two by Gargano. Galloway hangs onto the ropes. He goes to the eyes. Boot and series of Future Shock DDTs. 1-2-NO! Galloway puts Gargano on the top rope and spits in his face. Gargano catches him with a boot. Cross body caught. Pair of tombstones. 1-2-NO! Galloway is incredulous at the official. Slap and roll-up by Gargano. Superkick. Sick kick and another tombstone leads to a Galloway victory.

Winner (s)/Rating: Drew Galloway

Galloway declares July 17 “Independent Wrestling Day” and says he needs to finish this right now. Ethan Page comes into make the save. RKEgo on Galloway. Gargano shoves Page away. Clearly, he’s been watching his Sting tapes on the award winning WWE Network. Gargano says he’s not sure how much longer he can do this. He thanks the crowd and leaves.

Queens, NY. EVOLVE 64. You should’ve caught it on WWNLive.com because by card alone, it seemed like it’d be something special. And from what we hear? It definitely delivered. Can’t watch the show yet? Below we’ll have results!

But just as a refresher, you can still get a VOD on WWNLive.com AND you can purchase EVOLVE 65 for tomorrow. Do it. You likely won’t regret it. Onto results! Shout out to the great folks at PWPonderings!

Johnny Gargano vs. Cedric Alexander

Similar to the actual Crusierweight Classic, the official asks both men about the rules and has them follow the code of honor. Feeling out process picks up quickly with some nice counters and chain wrestling. Superman spear in the ring as these two show some lightning quickness. Alexander gets on the offense with a nice dropkick. Tope suicida to the outside. As much as Evolve has become about the grappling style with Catch Point and Thatcher, this match showed that there’s some of the spot guys who can deliver a fun back and forth match. This was a tremendous showcase of both guys movesets. This got the crowd into the show right away and was a hoot to watch. Series of strikes and kicks. They eventually superkick each other down. Gargano counters a lumbar check into a GargaNo Escape and gets the tapout victory.

Winner (s)/Rating: Johnny Gargano/****

Galloway attacks Gargano after the match, but Page makes the save and takes the chair shots for his friend and former partner. Drew Gulak runs in and dropkicks Galloway. I guess it’s on. Then as the match is about to begin, CHUCK TAYLOR ATTACKS DREW GULAK! HOLY CRAP! Fred Yehi and Tracy Williams run out to stop the madness. Galloway calls Chuck Taylor “Dustin.” We’re using shoot names now. Galloway challenges Catch Point for the Evolve tag team titles later on. Williams calls Evolve their home and asks Gulak if they want to defend it. Gulak agrees, and there we go.

Later on, Ethan Page mentions Gargano and how he needs to forgive him, because he needs a partner and a friend.

After Galloway/Dustin vs Catch Point, Galloway says they broke Evolve’s spirit tonight and they’ll rip out the heart the next night when Galloway defeats Gargano. Galloway says Taylor, EC3, Hero, Rhodes, and himself will all be in the house. Taylor says he’s been in Evolve since day one and buries Gulak for being in CZW. Taylor wants to know where his contract is. He says Chuck Taylor is now dead. Gargano will have his back broken.

Not only did Johnny wrestle at the NXT tapings earlier in the night, he was also scheduled for EVOLVE. He and Drew Galloway vs TJ Perkins and Drew Gulak. Did the man make it in time? Or were the two men disqualified? Thanks to those at PWPonderings, we’ve got our answers and they are QUITE interesting! Be sure to check out the replay of the show at WWNLive.com. Also be sure to order EVOLVE 54 and 55 while you’re there. We’ll have results all weekend!

Johnny Gargano wrestled in NXT earlier in the night. He did not make it in time to wrestle with Drew Galloway in the main event. Ethan Page offered to take Gargano’s spot for the night, and allow Gargano to step back in on Saturday were he and Galloway to win. Not liking how Page has treated Gargano in the past, Galloway does not accept his offer, and opts to wrestle Catch Point on his own.

8. EVOLVE Tag Team Title Tournament First Round Match
Drew Galloway & Johnny Gargano defeat Catch Point (Drew Gulak & TJ Perkins w/Matt Riddle & “Hot Sauce Tracy Williams) with a Future Shock DDT from Galloway to Gulak. Gargano joined the match in progress as he made it to the building during the match.
