WWE Hall of Famer Bully Ray was talking on a recent episode of the Busted Open Radio Show about various topics including of NXT superstar Johnny Gargano and how Gargano has appeared on Raw, SmackDown, and NXT as of late.
It’s believed that Gargano will be a main roster star full-time going forward but according to Ray, he thinks Gargano should remain in NXT. Here is what he had to say:
“I would rather see Johnny get double-parked back in NXT, and when I say double-parked, I mean that in the best way. Gargano is a stud in NXT and we know that,” Bully explained. “If they have nothing for him on the main roster, there is zero good reason to bring him up. We talk about this all the time – guys come up to the main roster and then are never heard from again.”
“Unfortunately, We talk about our friend Bobby Roode and especially now, the new victim is EC3. I don’t think they would do that with Gargano but you never know. It’s very, very easy to find yourself in limbo on the main roster because we see it happen to so many guys and girls,” Bully stated. “I’d much rather see him stay in NXT. I would rather see him do what he does there. Gargano’s a bigger star now because he’s had a little stint on the main roster so staying in NXT is going to give the NXT guys the rub and I can almost see Gargano working with a Riddle, or working with anybody over there.”
“Now, when Ciampa comes back, if they move them both back up to the main roster, then that main roster move was because of Ciampa.”
