Johnny Gargano wants to be Johnny Nickelodeon.
Johnny Gargano is a man with many interests outside of the world of professional wrestling. Oftentimes, his logos reflect pop culture icons, including superheroes like Wolverine, Spider-Man, and more.
Now, Johnny Gargano is professing his love for a more modern superhero, Henry Danger. Henry Danger was a Nickelodeon live-action series that ran from 2014-2020. A spin-off series, Danger Force, started in March of 2020.
Johnny Gargano, on his Twitch stream, revealed that he loves both the Henry Danger and the Danger Force series and yes, he is a 34-year-old man, but he believes the shows are for adults. too.
“I don't know if it's weird, but I think I love Henry Danger and Danger Force. I don't know, is it if it's weird to say as a 34-year-old man, but if there are other people that are like my age, can you affirm or confirm what I'm saying here? Henry Danger or The Thundermans — Henry Danger is good, man. That's a good show. If you haven't seen it yet, that's a good show. I feel like it's for adults, too. So I don't know. It's good. Danger Force, also good. There's that. I just want to get that out in the world, stuff I'm watching or doing lately. I mean, I'd love to go to Nickelodeon.”
Johnny Gargano then revealed that he was supposed to be a part of the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards in 2020 right before the global pandemic. Johnny says that both he and his wife, Candice LeRae, were scheduled to be a part of the orange carpet festivities and were even going to get slimed, a true honor in the world of Nickelodeon.
“Little known fact. I will break some other news for you here. So before the pandemic, me and Candice, we were actually scheduled — this is going to be one of the biggest missed opportunities of my life. Me and Candice, we were actually scheduled to go to the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards and get slimed. Like that was a real thing that was gonna happen. Yeah, it sucks, man. I know. Right before the pandemic, like literally, it was all set. We had our travel booked and everything. We're gonna go to the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards, and be on the [orange] carpet, do all the good stuff, and get slimed.
"Then, the pandemic happened and the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards didn't happen. So yeah, that would have been — the Bucket List item is still there for me."
Johnny, a rational person, has decided that it is all Chuck Taylors’ fault because he blames Chuck Taylor for everything.
“I blame Chuck Taylor, too. I blame him for everything,” Johnny concluded.
Nickelodeon, specifically the days of the Orange Splat logo, carries the same nostalgic memories for some as the WWE Attitude Era.
Speaking of the Attitude Era, Johnny also revealed on his Twitch stream that he had recorded an Attitude Era podcast with Adam Cole underthe WWE banner. Learn more here.
