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.

Returning back to Saint Louis Anarchy, Johnny was set to take on Zakk Sawyers. Merely 22, Zakk has already become quite the familiar name, and this was his opportunity of a lifetime. Unfortunately for him, however, he was set up against one of the best pound-for-pound wrestlers in the United States, and fell victim to Gargano tonight in Alton. Congratulations again, Johnny!

On July 25th, 2014 a dream match was held in Alton , Illinois.

Johnny Gargano versus ACH happened. And from the feedback we saw on Twitter, it seems it did not disappoint. But is that really a shocker?

Thanks to PWPonderings, we’ve got the results of the match.

This weekend was a doubleshot from St Louis Anarchy, with both Gateway to Anarchy Night One & Two boasting talent filled cards. The show broke their own attendance records, how crazy is that?! However, Johnny was only on Night One and it was in a match that was described as “unreal”. We don’t have much more information than that, but do we ever believe it to be true.
Johnny teamed up with Nick Jackson to defeat the very talented Mat Fitchett and Davey Vega.

Kyle O’Reilly is one of the largest, and fastest rising stars in the independent scene today. A man who has impressed all over the nation with his work for ROH, and PWG, Kyle has made home in Saint Louis Anarchy, and tonight, he got to face one of the most prominent men in the independent wrestling scene. Johnny Gargano vs. Kyle O’Reilly was set to impress, and neither man disappointed.

Unfortunately, Johnny wasn’t victorious, but I suppose one could celebrate in yet another fantastic match, right?!

Come back to SLA soon, Gargano!

In a bout that has gained quick recognition throughout the wrestling internet community, current DGUSA Open the Freedom Gate champion, Johnny Gargano, once again locked horns with independent sensation, Arik Cannon. Colliding numerous times before throughout their independent careers, Gargano has almost consistently walked out with the victory, something that proved different tonight at Circus Maximus.

Leaving Alton with the victory, Arik Cannon has now set up the odds at 3:2, leaving many to wonder if some day soon, the two will finally even the odds.

Johnny Gargano vs. ACH went to a draw when both opponents simultaneously pinned each other’s shoulders to the mat. The match was restarted with a five minute time limit but neither competitor was able to score the fall. After the match, Gargano spoke very highly of ACH.
