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.

It’s that time again. Another EVOLVE tripleshot, and they’re back in Florida. Hopefully they’ll all soak up some sun and no injuries will occur. Right, Johnny?

Below is all the information you’ll need to watch all the EVOLVE shows coming up.

EVOLVE 31 – August 8th, 2014 – Ybor City, FL – iPPV Purchase Link

Johnny Gargano vs. Matt Sydal.

A dream match, simply put. These two have never stepped in the ring with one another and now, the time has finally come for them to meet. The former Evan Bourne’s return to the independent circuit has been long awaited. Will the former Open the Freedom Gate champion show the high flying Sydal that he has been replaced and that no one has truly missed him, or will Sydal show him up, and in the process, let everyone know that he’s back for good?

EVOLVE 32 – August 9th, 2014 – Orlando, FL – iPPV Purchase Link

Johnny Gargano vs. Caleb Konley of the Premier Athlete Brand w/ Su Yung.

Another night, another match.  Konley is someone many people are watching closely, and of course, he’s apart of the Premier Athlete Brand, so there’s something about him that’s special. But everyone knows that Johnny is special himself, so who will come out on top?

EVOLVE 33 – August 10th, 2014 – Jacksonville, FL – iPPV Purchase Link

Johnny Gargano vs. Rich Swann.

A match that is ending it all. These two have intense history and it’s all coming to an end in Jacksonville, FL. Johnny wants to end Swann’s career in Evolution’s End and we’re sure Swann wants to tear the former champion apart. This match will be insane in so many different ways and yet.. we have no idea about who will come out on top.

Though if we had our way, Johnny would be champion again and he’d be defeating everyone, but..

We should let you all know, though.. if you order all three  live iPPVs by Monday, August 4th at midnight EST, you will be rewarded with any two past DGUSA, EVOLVE or FIP iPPVs at WWNLive.com On Demand for FREE! A Wrestling Odyssey from New Orleans is also an option! This means you get five iPPVs for the price of three! Here’s how to take advantage:

-Order EVOLVE 31, EVOLVE 32 and EVOLVE 33 at WWNLive.com by this Monday at midnight EST.

There’s nothing like a good ol’ PWG show, and with the Battle of Los Angeles right around the corner, the stakes are higher than ever. Arguably with one of the biggest followings in the PWG audience, Johnny Gargano will be put to the test again in another Number One Contendership match. Unfortunately losing his last one in a four-way against Drake Younger, Chris Hero, and the current champion, Kyle O’Reilly, Johnny now has another chance.

A chance to go on to face Johnny for the third time one-on-one. Facing off against the former champion, Adam Cole, and PWG regular, Roderick Strong, Johnny is set to go in for a heck of a lot of pain.

But that’s certainly never stopped him before. With Adam still livid over his title loss, and Roderick always attempting to prove a point that he’s one of the best in independent wrestling today, Johnny will be forced to go all in, but we have faith he’ll be coming out victorious. After all, we could watch him stand toe-to-toe with Kyle for the rest of our wrestling-loving lives.

Best of luck, Gargano! We’ll be cheering for you.

PS: Avoid the chops.

The show will take place on July 26th, a month and three days before BOLA. First row seats are already sold out, but General Admission will be available at the door. Bell time is at 8:00PM, and the show promises to deliver. If you’re in the Reseda area, as always, be sure to check it out.

It’s just about time for Wrestlemania, but more importantly?
It’s almost time for the WWNLive Experience! SHIMMER, Kaiju Big Battel, A Wrestling Odyssey.. and of course, DGUSA and EVOLVE!
And what will Johnny be doing during these events? Well, of course he’ll be wrestling. He’s got to grace the crowd, doesn’t he? Not to mention, the rest of the world since all these events will be broadcast live on iPPV!
On Thursday, April 3rd, it’s EVOLVE 28 and Johnny will be facing an opponent that Ricochet has chosen for him. That opponent? Well, it’s Rich Swann!

Swann has been itching to get his hands on Gargano for months now, and his wish has been granted.
But on Friday, April 4th, its Open The Ultimate Gate 2014 and Johnny will again be defending his title.. but this time, it will be against the Open The Dream Gate champion, Ricochet!

Then, here comes Mercury Rising on Saturday, April 5th!

Mercury Rising is best known for their Six Man Tag Team Tradition. This year, it’s brought to a whole new level. It’s going to feature a six man tag tournament and participants include: Ricochet, AR Fox and Rich Swann, Tony Nese, Trent Baretta and Caleb Konley and many more.

But where does Johnny fit in with this? Originally, he was meant to be teaming with the Bravado Brothers, however, due to changes, instead it will be the Bravados and Moose.

So.. where does that leave Johnny?

Well, Johnny will be going against the one and only, extremely talented Low Ki!
..we’re not kidding, he’s seriously wrestling Low Ki on April 5th, live on iPPV!
We’re sure it’s going to be absolutely killer, and we certainly can’t wait for the match up.

We’ve seen then try and decimate each other, and we’ve seen them gush on Twitter over pandas. We’ve hoped for the best, and finally, we’ve gotten it: The tag team of two of the best in independent wrestling’s history. Teaming up at Gauntlet for the Gold 9 is Kevin Steen and Johnny Gargano — the Panda Express! We here would like to thank you, Ethan Page and Louis Lyndon, for being such nuisances that Cleveland, America, and the entire world now gets to see potentially the greatest tag team of all time.

This weekend, EVOLVE will be hosting a triple shot in the state of Florida and here is all the information you need to know.

First of all, all of these events will be streamed LIVE! on iPPV. They will be broadcast in HD livescreen and if you order before the day before the shows, you will save 5$.

At EVOLVE 25 on January 10th, at the Orpheum in Ybor City, there will be an EPIC Six Man Tag match.

It will be Johnny Gargano and the Bravado Brothers versus Rich Swann and the Young Bucks! Each man has history with at least someone else in the match, so expect it to be explosive.

At EVOLVE 26 the very next night at the Orlando Downtown Recreatiom Complex in Orlando, Florida, there will be yet another tag match!

This time, champions will collide when Johnny teams with Jon Davis to face EVOLVE champion AR Fox and Uhaa Nation!

And now, onto EVOLVE 27 at the Edge Concert Hall in Jacksonville, Florida!

Originally, it was set to be Johnny versus the debuting Roderick Strong in a non title match. That has been up in the air since Roderick suffered an unfortunate injury at the ROH show on January 4th. Up until now, it’s been thought that Roderick would be available to wrestle. However, due to doctors orders, he won’t be available to wrestle.

But! Gabe has just informed everyone that Johnny will be facing the winner of the new “Chance of a Lifetime” FRAY! Competitors include Jon Davis, Chuck Taylor, Uhaa Nation, Caleb Konley, and Lince Dorado!

That’s a big match, and I’m quite excited to see who Johnny will end up facing.
