Johnny Gargano speaks about Britt Baker and Bron Breakker.
Britt Baker took the World by storm in 2021 en route to becoming AEW Women's World Champion. Now, Johnny Gargano is telling the world how proud he is of her after she used to travel to Cleveland, Ohio oh, just to train with him and Candice LeRae in an effort to get better at professional wrestling.
Speaking on his Twitch stream, Johnny called Britt a diamond due to her passion for the industry.
"She's kind of one of my original kids. She's Austin and Indi's, I guess, older sister. She used to travel from Pittsburgh to Cleveland while she was in school, to train with me and Candice, I mean, that that shows you right there... I say this all the time. You can teach a lot of people how to do headlocks, hammerlocks, and how to do this thing, and how to do this correctly. But you can't teach someone to love this. You can't teach somebody to go above and beyond. Britt obviously went above and beyond to try to become good at this and that just comes from a place of love. That's when you know you got a diamond. I say this all the time about people at the Performance Center. People get paid to train and be able to get paid to learn how to wrestle, but you can't teach someone to love this. But when you find that person who's that like athletic freak who also loves this, that's when you got that diamond."
Johnny also had similar remarks for Bron Breakker, the son of Rick Steiner. Johnny previously faced Breakker in a Ladder Match on NXT television.
"[Bron Breakker is 'the truth.'] how I mentioned earlier, like earlier by earlier I mean, like 30 seconds ago, when he mentioned the diamonds, the guys that get it, he's one of them. He's gonna be a star for a long, long time."
Johnny has said that he wants to give the world a break from Johnny Gargano and focus on becoming a father but he has also stated that if fans chant for him loud enough at any event, you never know where he may show up next.
Britt Baker’s next big title defense will be against Riho at AEW Battle of the Belts on January 8. Learn more here. Bron Breakker will face Tommaso Ciampa for the NXT Championship on January 4 at NXT New Year's Evil.
