WWE Rumors: Who Do We Want To See As The Next Opponent For Johhny Gargano?
We’ve seen the match Johnny Gargano put on against Andrade ‘Cien’ Almas at Takeover. Now, the entire WWE Universe is buzzing about Johnny Wrestling. Where does his career go from here? And most importantly, who should he face on the main roster?
1. Tommaso Ciampa
This is an obvious choice for a Gargano opponent. The storyline is already built-in. While this might be a match held in NXT (Although the latest tapings say otherwise), the two have proven to give a 5-Star match before. The main roster, while much more toned down than NXT would give Gargano and Ciampa the chance to showcase themselves on a grand stage. And that’s exactly what this feud needs.
TJP submitted Gargano at the Cruiserweight Classic in the 2nd round. This is the rematch many have wanted to see. The technical/high-flying skill of TJP, mixed with the technical/high-flying skill of Gargano make this one of the more intriguing matches in quite some time. Let this be the match we get at WrestleMania for the Cruiserweight belt.
3. Daniel Bryan
We’ve heard that Johnny Gargano is being booked as the next Bryan. The underdog that climbs his way to the top of the mountain. If so, Gargano needs to defeat him. There’s not really one person in the WWE (aside from Rey Mysterio) that has defied the odds as much as Bryan. However, for Gargano to truly be the next underdog hero, knocking off the fan favorite Bryan is what he needs to do.
4. Johnny Gargano/Candace LaRae vs. Andrade ‘Cien’ Almas/Zelina Vega
The seeds for this match have been planted. Somewhere down the line, these four need to meet. We saw at Takeover both LaRae and Vega get involved in the match. And seeing as to how Gargano and Almas tore the roof off in their last meeting, this seems like a no-brainer. Of course, this would come at a later date. Hence, Gargano is on his way to the main roster. Almas (and Vega) are still NXT champs, and LaRae needs to spend some time developing before she makes her way to Smackdown or RAW.
These are just a few of the matches fans would like to see Johnny Gargano in. There’s surely many more. For instance, Seth Rollins, Finn Balor, Samoa Joe, and many more. Regardless, 2018 is going to be a fun one for Gargano. So, let’s see how far WWE pushes him.Follow @DGentleman9288
