During his impressive stint in Florida for the recent EVOLVE weekend, Johnny Gargano caught up with the folks at Pro Wrestling CSI for an interview. Absolutely gleeful because he gets to wear shorts and a tank in the hot Florida weather, Johnny engages in a fun interview with Hal Lee and speaks of things such as Dragon Gate USA, his preparation, the use of the Internet for the guys on the independent scene, and so much more!
After the killing opening match at the kickstart event of this EVOLVE weekend, Johnny Gargano understandably took a well deserved rest before meeting up with Gabe earlier today. With a mild confrontation about Johnny’s tactics during his match with Shingo at Wrestlecon, Gabe was cut off as Johnny informed him of the utmost truth. All he did was show all the heart in the world – as he did last night with his match against Matt Jackson. Your hero, however, still has two matches set up for him this exciting, action-packed weekend. Involved in the USA vs. the World series, Johnny chose himself as the leader for Team USA – rightfully so! (After all, Ohio is the epicenter of America, anyway, and he does bleed red, white, and blue.) Taking on Tomahawk T.T. on Saturday, Johnny plans to lead America to the good ol’ victory it deserves.
And then on Sunday, perhaps one of the most exciting matches of the summer set, Johnny will take on the King of Flight, Samuray Del Sol. Mentioning the rumors floating around about the high-flyer, Johnny reminds everyone of one thing: He, instead, resigned like the inspiration he truly is, who does what’s best for the company that made him. Just like how he fights his hardest to remain champion, knowing that it makes DGUSA.
And now, he’s off to Universal in celebration! Don’t fall off any rides, Gargano!

After an offer shot out from Ricochet several days ago – the fast-paced superstar offering his services in a very… noble manner – Johnny Gargano responded late last night. Two drastically different men with morals on the opposite sides of the wrestling spectrum now create 2/3 of Team Gargano on April 7th at Wrestlecon.

Towards the end, he sends out an official proposal to the Dragon Gate USA office. Wanting to wrap up a bit of his past and to help cement his legacy, Johnny proposes in one corner, himself, and the other? CIMA. Sprucing it up for a traditional Dragon Gate six-person tag, the two competitors will pick a team from their respective areas. Dragon Gate USA vs. Dragon Gate Japan.
Will CIMA accept? Who will land on each team? We’ll be sure to keep you updated as time goes on!
