Name: John Gargano Ring Name(s): Cedrick Von Haussen, Joey Gray, Johnny Gargano From: Cleveland, Ohio Date of Birth: August 14, 1987 Working For: WWE NXT, AIW, etc 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.
In a matter of days, Johnny Gargano came up short of capturing the NXT Tag Team Titles and was eliminated from the Cruiserweight Classic. How is Johnny Wrestling dealing with these setbacks?

If you haven’t heard of the hype surrounding Beyond Wrestling’s Americanrana event, then I almost feel sorry for you. Numerous matches shone from the card, but one in particular was soon referred to as a “must see,” a match between Johnny Gargano, and the steadily rising, JT Dunn. Johnny was ultimately victorious, despite JT’s remarkable efforts in the contest, and soon, people were reeling for more. A second match was then demanded, and NEFW gladly provided it. Above is the match in which you can get a taste of what things were like that magical night of Americanrana.
Interested in seeing part one? Links are below for purchase, and I can promise you, it’s not money wasted… As if the match above doesn’t already confirm that for you.
Perhaps you’ve heard of Hell on Earth? It’s only AIW’s annual Black Friday show, and this year, it returns on November 29th. Two men have collided in numerous places throughout America, and on that very show, they’ll collide once again. The “unquestioned ace of Absolute Intense Wrestling” returns back home after an absence since Absolution VIII. However, Johnny is never one to disappoint his home crowd, and this time? He’s bringing back somebody that he knows will tear the roof off with him. Wanting to make things special, Johnny recreates a match from PWG at Hell on Earth 8: Johnny Gargano vs. Kevin Steen.
Excited? I know you are.
If you’re in the area, be sure to attend, because it’s promised to be a show that you simply won’t want to miss.
In arguably one of the best matches of AIW’s 2012 year, Johnny Gargano teamed up with the steadily rising Josh Alexander to take on two members of #NIXON. And luckily for you, AIW has uploaded the match to YouTube! Enjoy!
Be sure to show AIW some appreciation by buying some of their merch over at ProWrestlingTees!
Compared to the day Neil Armstrong first set foot on the moon, that was the day that Johnny Gargano became the first ever American Dragon Gate USA Open the Freedom Gate champion. Groundbreaking and inspirational, Johnny continued his reign as a proud and strong champion, and this weekend, he puts the title on the line in Manhattan once more six hundred days after his reign began. Going over his weekend in the video above, you can see into the mind of Your Hero once more.
We know you’ll enjoy… After all, he’s incapable of letting anyone down.
Remember Wrestlecon? Yeah, the biggest weekend of the wrestling year?
That’s the time where we all remember Johnny Gargano’s epic change; as he grew more focused, more determined, and began the righteous fight to keep Dragon Gate USA as the premiere wrestling company. Interested in seeing one of the biggest moments since he became a better man? Watch the video above to see what happened after the annual six-man tag team match; a situation that involved Gargano, CIMA, Rich Swann, Ricochet, and Jon Davis. Pulled in? I understand completely.
If you’re in the New York area, the shows in the 27th and 28th are two you simply cannot miss, and if you’re too far away? Have no fear. Watch DGUSA on live iPPV at http://www.WWNLive.com with three different pricing options. Be sure to order the day before the event so the $5 price hike does not go into effect, and enjoy the shows!
With the New York weekend nearing closer, and closer… Johnny Gargano had several words to say about the words that went out on the recent WWNLive News Alert Rumors. Seemingly, Johnny Gargano is not simply “All Heart,” he’s “All Truth,” and he tries to give you, the fans, what you deserve. Ignoring his own friendships to bring you everyone deserves, Johnny still vows to bring his all on the upcoming Dragon Gate USA weekend… And if you can attend? This video is only proof that you must; strictly to see Your Hero remind you all why he is the 600-day reigning Dragon Gate USA Open the Freedom Gate champion.
In the first match of this episode of PRIME TV, Johnny Gargano took on Jeremy Madrox of the Megalomaniacs. After Vic Travagliante took Johnny out of the PRIME title picture upon assuming the role of Commissioner, Vic wisely took note of Johnny’s remarkable resolve and tenacity, and tried to set up a road block before a fight began. An original of PRIME Wrestling – a member of the Foundation – Johnny’s sacrifices for the company would surely build up more than any other person’s, and understandably, he’s looking to sit back in the throne of his home territory. Vic’s first roadblock would seemingly not be as challenging as one would think, but after the recent weeks where Jeremy – alongside Marion Fontaine – cheated Gregory Iron and Zach Gowen out of the PRIME Tag Titles before kicking them out of the arena, perhaps Vic’s challenge is more intimidating than any person would ever think. Did Johnny succeed in building momentum? Watch the video above, Johnny comes out at 3:45.
Aired back in May on the 19th, Prime TV showed quite the match. When Commissioner Vic Travagliante’s attempt to recruit The Dead Wrestling Society to join with The Megalomaniacs failing, he then had the questionable idea to place some of his top foes in one match – hoping that no person would walk out 100%. With Johnny speaking out against recent PRIME events, many deemed him ready for failure. With both Gregory Iron and Zach Gowen banned from the building, and longtime foe and pal Matt Cross missing in action, it seemed like no other person was willing to give up their spot on the roster to cross the questionable boss by teaming up with Johnny. Did anyone answer the call, or did Johnny get destroyed?
