Johnny Gargano believes all brands are equal.
Ever since NXT found a home on USA Network in September 2019, the gold brand has been on equal footing as Raw and SmackDown. And if you try to dispute the difference between "main roster" and NXT, Johnny Gargano won't be pleased.
"That's BS," Gargano told TMZ when asked about fans still calling Raw and SmackDown the "main roster." "Complete garbage and it's something that me and a lot of guys have worked to dispel for a very long time. Anyone out there who uses the word 'main roster' when talking about Raw and SmackDown, how about you watch the show on Wednesday night. You'll see the real main roster. You'll see the best wrestling show on the planet. The best locker room on the planet, led by me! That's what you'll see on Wednesday night. Main roster, developmental, you're stupid if you use those words. You're stupid. Quit it."
Gargano was also asked about his recent turn on Tommaso Ciampa, which he avoided answering in the partially in-character interview. Gargano said he is still the same Johnny Gargano, but he is seeing things in a new perspective.
Fightful will have live coverage of NXT on Wednesday beginning at 8 p.m. ET.
