On this week’s WWE Monday Night Raw, the former NXT Champion Johnny Gargano made a surprise return to WWE. He delivered a promo, saying he wanted to become an Intercontinental Champion, a United States Champion, a WWE Champion, and perform at WrestleMania. He soon interrupted by his former teammate Theory and that segment ended with Gargano hitting superkick on Theory.

According to the Fightful Select reports, Johnny Gargano’s return was not only a surprise for the WWE Universe, but also for some of the talent. Johnny’s name was kept off rundowns before the show, and many of the talent backstage had no idea he was in the building. It’s also noted that most of the talent found out about Johnny Gargano only minutes before he made his entrance.

This report also stated that WWE was patient and respectful towards Johnny as he welcomed a new child with his wife, Candice LeRae. The company felt more confident about re-signing him once Triple H was named Head of Creative. Also, Fightful has not heard of any “advanced negotiations” between Johnny and All Elite Wrestling, even though several people in AEW were pushing for the promotion to sign him.
