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.

Bournville, West Midlands, England, UK. The Cadbury Club. March 8th, 2015.

It was on this day that Johnny Gargano defended his Open the Freedom Gate championship versus Pete Dunne in a match many people wanted to see.

Would Johnny lose his belt to this man overseas? Or would he retain like he always does and show the fans who the real hero was?

Spoiler alert: all those fans found out that Johnny is indeed the hero we all deserve. Thanks to WrestleRopesUK for the results!

Did you know Johnny’s wrestled at a place called The Dolphin Centre? Yup. In Darlington. Sounds like a cool place, huh? He wrestled there for Tidal Championship Wrestling and faced off against TCW’s champion, Liam Lazarus. Also a pretty cool name.

But did he get away with the title? Thanks to WrestleRopesUK, we know!

TCW Championship – Liam Lazarus defeated Johnny Gargano by Pinfall to retain the TCW Championship.

Following the match, Liam Lazarus offered Johnny Gargano a cup of tea. Gargano took to the mic and said he is always impressed with the fans and talent in the UK and he would be honoured to share a cup of tea with Lazarus. Both men shook hands.

The next stop on Johnny’s UK tour was in St. Neots, Cambridgeshire, England, UK for Southside Wrestling yet again.

This time, he was wrestling in a fatal fourway, competing for the SWE Speed King title against Will Ospreay (the champion), Andrew Everett and Jimmy Havoc.

Unfortunately, he didn’t pick up the win and the title, with Ospreay instead retaining.

But y’know, according to social media, Johnny made a trip to Disneyland in Paris with Candice LeRae and Joey Ryan, so he’s obviously the real winner here.

Another night down, a brand new opponent was faced. Tonight for Southside Wrestling, in Purfleet, Essex, England, Johnny faced off against another incredible talent – Tommy End.

In a match described as something special, and many noting how the two of them tore down the house, Johnny unfortunately came up short as Tommy pinned him for the win. After the match, the two were poised to handshake.. until Tommy pulled out, disrespecting Gargano.


We’re sure Johnny’ll get him next time!

Johnny’s currently a hop, skip and a jump away from the good ol’ USA right now. He flew off to England to wrestle around those parts for the next while, and as you’ve probably guessed by now.. we’ll have the results of all those matches reported here. So stay tuned, will you?

His first stop was in Nottingham, England for Southside Wrestling at the Rushcliffe Arena. Though, he wasn’t facing anyone actually from the area.. no, he was facing fellow American Andrew Everett!

Which really, is actually pretty rad because have you seen that dude wrestle? If not, you should. Seriously.

But who was the victor? As great as Andrew Everett is.. he couldn’t defeat Johnny. Nope. So, Johnny is officially 1-0 over there.

Congratulations, dude. Have a fun and safe trip!

I don’t know how many times we can say it, the Dudes on TV are bastards. This time consisting of Ethan Carter III, Raymond Rowe, and DJ Z, Johnny aimed to take the group down a notch alongside Josh Prohibition and Alex Daniels. Despite Johnny’s HILARIOUS zinger towards EC3 and DJ Z’s home company,  that was seemingly the only good thing to come out of the night. After an interference with the ring bell from Raymond Rowe, Johnny was left unconscious and ready for the pin by EC3.

You know what, Dudes on TV? We hate you.

And we’re comin’ for you.

And by we, we mean Johnny and we’ll reward him with Quest bars if he knocks all of your teeth out. Yeah. We said it. We went there. We have a feeling this is just beginning, and we’re sure it’ll end in Team Gargano’s favor.

In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past several months, WWE recently lost one of their most underrated talents. While it was sad that the dream was never to be, the indy scene jumped for joy at the endless list of outstanding match possibilities, and last night, a singles match between our personal favorite took place in New York City — not that far from the now Brian Myers stomping grounds. However, having the home-state advantage seemingly didn’t work in his favor, and Johnny seems to be on a recent roll in FWE… Potentially looking for gold? We certainly hope so.

Remember that nice, shiny gold ring Gargano won about a year ago? We do. And this weekend, he headed back to California to return to the second Race For The Ring, but this year… He tried to gain something a little bit heavier. In a three-way main event match up against the champion, B-Boy, and Papadon, Johnny ultimately walked out with nothing in hand… but that’s alright, Johnny. Just spit-shine last year’s ring, and all your troubles will fade away!

The next night, Johnny returned for tag-team action… alongside one of the men he faced the day before, Papadon. Taking on the champion, B-Boy, and his partner, the outstanding Willie Mack, Johnny and Papadon turned the tables and managed to obtain a victory over the champion.

Perhaps this calls for another title match in the future? Only time can tell.

Welcome to 2015 everyone! Johnny’s already got tons on tap for the year but first off, he was down in Florida for an EVOLVE doubleshot!

For EVOLVE 36, he was slated to wrestle Caleb Konley, but injury took him out. So who would face the champ?

The show started with Johnny in the ring, thanking the fans for their support and talking about how EVOLVE is the place for young and hungry talent and that now, EVOLVE roster members would be able to bring in younger wrestlers for their shot on the roster. This led to Johnny’s former roster member Rich Swann coming out and letting everybody know he was bringing in the first young wrestler. Who was it? Shane “SWERVE” Strickland!

Within a few moments, the match between Gargano and Strickland was made a title match and on they went.

But who won? Johnny Gargano of course! Via submission. The two men shook hands afterwards and out came Moose, the Bravado’s bodyguard. He then speared Johnny which we found to be incredibly rude.

Later on, Moose and the Bravado’s came out after Rich Swann’s match and began the beatdown. Johnny made the save and a match was made for the next night at EVOLVE 37.. Johnny Gargano, Rich Swann and the returning Chuck Taylor versus Moose and Bravado’s.. and whoever lost? Would never be able to team again.

Which leads us to the next night.

Which team would never team again? The newly reunited Ronin or the Bravados? Well, if you’re a Ronin fan, you should be happy because if the time ever comes, they can reunite once more! Yes, that’s right – Ronin defeated Moose and the Bravados.. but the night wasn’t over yet for Johnny. Not even close.

Once the match came to a close, out came EVOLVE champion Drew Galloway to have a staredown with the Open the Freedom Gate champion. What will this lead to? We smell a unification match at the Mania weekend shows.. but we’ll see.

As you can see, we have some great candid shots of EVOLVE 37 as well as EVOLVE 32 thanks to Bobby! Give him a follow, will ya?
