Thus far as part of WWE, Johnny Gargano has been spending the majority of his time in the tag team ranks with Tommaso Ciampa in #DIY. However, during a recent interview, he
"I've always been a singles guy. I know Tommaso's always been a singles guy. I'm a singles guy in my heart but I'm just going to take whatever comes to me," Gargano said during an interview with Chris Van Vliet, an entertainment reporter for WSVN TV. "I believe #DIY is something special, I believe we can bring a lot of different things to the table."
Gargano started making appearances on NXT in June of 2015, even though he was not under an exclusive contract after he participated in a WWE tryout. He continued to split his time between NXT tapings and independent events through last summer when he signed a full-time contract with WWE.
"I learn something new every single day," Gargano said of training at the Performance Center full time. "I think, if you're in this profession, you can never stop learning. Especially with the minds around us at the Performance Center on a daily basis... I think the main thing for us here is when you do indies you have one little camera, it might even be a phone sometimes that you're kind of wrestling for and you kind of wrestle more for the live audience. In the grand spectrum of things in WWE, you are wrestling for that camera, and that camera, and that camera and all the cameras they have and you have to make things work that way because through that camera there's a million people watching."
One of the people carefully observing every aspect of the NXT product is Triple H, who Gargano described as "very hands on" in the production of the brand.
"It's his baby. And that's mind-blowing to me because I grew up thinking HHH was the man. He has such an amazing mind and he has such an amazing vision for NXT as you can see from the product, it's amazing. It's really special and it's cool to be a part of something like this."
