Johnny Gargano Reflects on Being Rejected by NXT in 2015: “I Didn’t Take No For an Answer”

Johnny Gargano recently Tweeted about his struggles breaking into WWE. That time of his career came in 2015, when he tried out for NXT, only to be rejected.

Johnny Wrestling said that he actually still has the rejection email from that tryout and that he looks at it sometimes as a reminder of how far he’s come. Gargano fought hard to get his spot in Vince McMahon’s company and he was determined to keep pushing until he got what he wanted.

But Gargano also mentioned that he had the fans to thank for his success. Fans chanted “Johnny Wrestling” and WWE listened. The rest is history.

Now Johnny Wrestling is headed to the biggest match of his pro wrestling career on April 5 at Takeover: New York. On that night, Gargano will face off against Adam Cole for the vacant NXT Championship. It’s indeed a huge moment for Johnny and one that should steal the show at Takeover.

The NXT Championship was most recently held by Gargano’s former tag team partner and bitter rival, Tommaso Ciampa. Ciampa was forced to relinquish the title due to neck surgery, which opened the door for Johnny Wrestling to climb the ladder of title glory on the black and gold brand.

It didn't matter if it was a dark match in Full Sail or my 1st TakeOver at the Barclays Center..

YOU chanted "Johnny Wrestling".. YOU believed in me.. and they listened.

We fought together to make any of this happen.

We will fight to make one last dream come true in New York.
