Johnny Gargano Open To GCW Match With Blake Christian If The Fans Want It, Says His Options Are Open

Johnny Gargano says wrestling Blake Christian in GCW is something that could happen if the fans show enough interest.

Recently, Blake Christian called out Johnny Gargano at GCW Paranoid. Christian was in NXT briefly with Gargano. For that brief length of time, he was known as Trey Baxter but he was not in WWE NXT long enough to get a match with Johnny Wrestling.

Responding to Blake during an interview with Mike Wexler, Johnny said he has had his eye on Blake for a long time, and if there is enough interest, the match could happen.

“Blake is a guy obviously I’ve known, he was in NXT for a bit as well, but Blake is a guy that I’ve had my eye on for a very, very long time," Johnny said. "I think he’s an incredibly talented young man and the fact that he uses the nickname ‘All Heart’, which, I had that nickname back in like 2005, but I’m not going to say that or anything. Anyway, his song is ‘The Bomb Dot Com’, which some people say sounds a lot like ‘Rebel Heart’ as well.

"He is a guy that I think is immensely talented and if I come back and I do a few matches here and there on the indie scene, taking on Blake Christian in GCW, if the fans would like to see that, let me know. I say all the time, and I do mean this, if you chant ‘Johnny Wrestling’, I will hear it, so you never know what could happen," Gargano added.

Gargano further explained that right now, his options are open but when it's time for him to return, the wrestling fans will be the first to know.

"I mean, all of my options are open right now, I’m very open about that," said Johnny. "I don’t know what I want to do next. It’s one of those things where I’m kind of in a time period of my life where I’m figuring that out. I’m figuring out what my goal is, and what lasting legacy I want to leave. I do have a lot of unfulfilled things in WWE that I do want to accomplish. So there’s WWE, there’s AEW, there’s New Japan, there’s doing a run on the indie scene, there’s a lot of things that I'm debating working on right now. I don’t know when, and I don’t know where I’m going to return, but I promise you when I do, you all will know.”
