Johnny Gargano reveals that there was a brief idea to have David Arquette be revealed as the Scream mask assailant that was helping him.
Last year during Halloween Havoc season, we learned that Johnny Gargano doesn't like wheels and we saw the formation of The Way. Austin Theory was revealed to be an assailant in a Ghostface Killer mask from the Scream movie franchise but Johnny Gargano says, on a recent Twitch stream, that there were discussions about David Arquette, former WCW Champion, potentially being revealed as the assailant.
"I kind of just made an offhanded joke, Oh, hopefully, it's a Scream mask guy and then that ended up being the Scream mask. At one point, there was thought there were talks of having it be revealed as David Arquette, that obviously didn't happen. But it was discussed at one point."
Speaking about Theory, Gargano would say that he is very proud of what Austin theory has gone on to do on Monday night and really devoted his last year in WWE to helping the younger stars succeed.
"This past year, I kind of made it my goal/mission to try to help as many people as possible and you know, set everything up for the future. That obviously Austin and Indi are two people that we wanted to help and put on a platform and give them a platform to be able to succeed for a long time with this company. They're very, very young. They have amazing talent. As you can see Austin's doing great stuff on Raw right now. He's so young, like so young, and now he's actually comfortable now. So I think he's going to do amazing things. Hopefully, he's going to be champion."
Now, Johnny Gargano is focused on his life outside of WWE including the upcoming birth of his first child. Johnny did reopen his Pro Wrestling Tees store recently. Learn more here.
