Johnny Gargano has revenge on his mind.
During the global press conference for NXT TakeOver: In Your House, Gargano was asked about Adam Cole's involvement in the NXT Championship Match and if he holds any ill will against him for his actions during their infamous feud throughout 2019. Here is what he had to say:
"There's always revenge on my mind. I am very loyal to the people that are loyal to me, but if you spite me, I do not forget. I always remember. But we're talking about something that happened two years ago. Part of me thinks I should thank Adam Cole, because I sat back and I watched him go to Cleveland, Ohio, with the NXT Championship. Go to my dad's restaurant. I watched that happen. Then what did people do? They still cheered for him. That taught me that people, they're not loyal. They still cheered a piece of garbage. Yes, Adam Cole is a piece of garbage, but I respect his accomplishments. I respect what he is capable of in that ring -- but that was almost two years ago. Looking around this room, after what Adam Cole has pulled the last two weeks, after he threw a chair in my face, I think everyone here in that 5-Way wants to kick Adam Cole's teeth down his throat. Monday morning, I think he is going to be very happy he knows a good dentist."
Cole is in a relationship with current AEW Women's Champion, Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D.
