Former WWE NXT champion Johnny Gargano recently said that he wants to win the NXT Championship for the second time. Gargano has won the title one time in his career so far and it is surely not impossible for him to grab it for one more time or more.
Gargano had his chance to win the title last week on NXT when he faced the current champion, Karrion Kross. The Samoan Submission Machine Samoa Joe was the special guest referee in this match. The fight was excellent however Gargano failed to win the match.
Johnny Gargano On His Wish To Win NXT Title For The Second Time
It does not look like him would be getting another opportunity to win the title by now as the end of the week clearly indicated towards a Feud between Karrion Kross and Samoa Joe next as Kross attacked Joe after the match and beat him down.
Gargano won his first NXT Championship back in 2019. Tommaso Ciampa got injured and vacated the NXT Championship. Gargano defeated Adam Cole in 2 out of 3 Falls match to grab the vacated NXT Championship. He dropped the title to Adam Cole after 2 months and he did not get to win the Championship ever since.
Johnny Gargano recently spoke with TV Insider where he said that he wants to win the NXT Championship for the second time. He said;
“I think I would be able to enjoy it a bit more now. The first time was a whirlwind and a relief, to be honest. I went on such an emotional journey to get to the top of the mountain and finally win the title. Then I did it, and a lot of people didn’t know I was injured at the time.
“I had a really bad foot injury during pretty much my whole run, so I didn’t get to enjoy it that much. I’m 100 percent healthy now. To win it for the second time would cement my legacy in NXT as the Mount Rushmore on that list.”
