Johnny Gargano injured

Quote:
-The other half of #DIY is also dealing with an injury. In the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it was announced that NXT Champion Johnny Gargano has been out of action recently due to a knee injury.

While details surrounding the injury are unknown, it may have happened in March. Gargano's last house show worked was on March 8. During recent NXT tapings, it appeared that Gargano was not working the majority of the tag matches he was in.

It is expected that he will be ready for his NXT TakeOver bout against Adam Cole. That will take place on June 1 in Bridgeport, CT. After that, it is unknown what his schedule will look like.

Gargano's injury may explain why he has been working as a producer as of late.

Damn, NXT Main Eventers are dropping like flies.

Sounds minor, but I just predicted he loses at TakeOver anyway. If this is true it would just solidify what I've said.

Sucks he got hurt, but hopefully this means Cole is for sure winning the title. Cause Gargano's reign has been extremely boring, and it would be nice to get some new faces in the main event, feels like Gargano has been in it for ages now.

With Gargano injured and Velveteen Dream busy with the NA title, the only main event-level guy that NXT will have post-Takeover is Matt Riddle.

Re: Johnny Gargano injured

Sounds like it's something where he's good enough to go for the big matches but they're resting him from the house show tour. As much as I do love Johnny though, if that's going to continue, the belt needs to go on a healthier guy.

To me, Cole wins at Takeover 25, and then one final match for Gargano at Takeover Toronto Summerslam weekend. And then honestly, I'd send Gargano to 205 Live because they need a new big name there and the main roster is completely bloated at the moment.

Re: Johnny Gargano injured

Sucks, he's the heart and soul of that show and carries it super hard. With Cole as champ, the show will lose a lot of depth.

Boring? He's had the belt for last than two months.

Can't trust those flippy floppy vanilla midgets. They are a liability. Take a shower, hit the gym, get a clue.

Re: Johnny Gargano injured

There is so much overwhelming evidence out there now that the style they are working and how often they are working it doesn't give enough time for the body to heal an inch and the result of that more now than ever are serious injuries that requires surgeries. I can not personally remember there ever being as many massive injuries as there have been the last 3 or so years? The style of work has changed drastically and is way more taxing on the body than it used to be and I question if the body is meant to take that much abuse on that much of a consistent basis without ever getting time to heal itself at this point.


I think at some point there needs to be done something so wrestlers don't overwork themselves as much as they currently are. While I love to see them perform and do their thing, at the end of the day I want them to be healthy and have a good life long after retiring and right now it doesn't seem very possible.
