“One more.. for old time’s sake.”
The tweet was tagged with Gargano’s fellow NXT War Games Team Black & Gold members Tommaso Ciampa, Pete Dunne, and L.A. Knight (all of whom are in the video, as well).
Could the “one more” be a hint that Johnny Wrestling won’t be on the NXT roster much longer?
Johnny Gargano’s contract status and a look back at the hilarious “Glorious Bomb”
December 3rd was supposed to be the day that the NXT Triple Crown winner’s contract was set to expire. However, Gargano reportedly signed a one-week extension with WWE last month, which would keep him on the brand until December 10th. As of yet, there’s been no word regarding his intentions after that, although word has it that WWE is extremely keen to re-sign him to a long-term deal. After all, Gargano has been with the brand for so long.

It became so synonymous with the team that Gargano even recreated it during his wedding to Candace LaRae.
As far as what Gargano’s future plans are following WarGames, it’s important to keep in mind that Gargano and LaRae are expecting their first child soon, which means the former NXT champ will be wanting to take plenty of time off for that. Without official word from either WWE or Gargano himself, everything else is pure speculation.
