Of course, we talk about the smaller stuff like his 873 day reign as Open the Freedom Gate Champion, going to Japan and his current run in PWG. You know the other stuff.
All joking aside, Johnny talks about a moment were a handicap almost ended his career. In a very serious Steen Show moment, Johnny talks about his near signing with TNA Wrestling to be a Twilight Vampire.

Open the Freedom Gate Champion Johnny Gargano defeated Roderick Strong with a GargaNo Escape to retain the title. Midway through the match, Rich Swann came out and invited the fans to surround the ring to give the match an awesome European fight club/WXW feel. After the match, Gargano took a mic, telling the fans that booing him is like booing kids with cancer, because “this belt cures cancer.” Swann took the mic from Johnny, telling him he made the fans surround the ring so that he’d have nowhere to run. Swann tells Johnny that in New Orleans, he’s gonna kick his ass, Cima’s gonna kick his ass, and Ricochet’s gonna kick his ass, so much that he can say goodbye to the title, as Gargano frantically searched for a way out. The fans started the Na na na hey hey goodbyes, before Johnny Gargano was able to escape the ring finally.
