Johnny Wrestling is coming home.
Former NXT Tag Team Champion Johnny Gargano officially announced on Twitter earlier this month that he is set to return to EVOLVE in January just one week out from NXT TakeOver: Phoenix. Johnny is competing at both EVOLVE 119 and 120.
I'm a firm believer that you should NEVER forget where you've come from.. you stay loyal to those who have been loyal to you.— Johnny Gargano (@JohnnyGargano) December 15, 2018
I can safely say that I wouldn't be the wrestler I am today without EVOLVE.

Gargano's opponent for EVOLVE 120 on January 19th in Woodside, New York has already been unveiled and he will be going one-on-one with the current EVOLVE Champion Austin Theory in a non-title match. The day before that bout at EVOLVE 119 at the 'Saint Finbar Catholic Church Gym' in Brooklyn, New York as announced via the EVOLVE Twitter page, Gargano is teaming up with AR Fox to face Austin Theory and Josh Briggs.
