Johnny Gargano Explains The Origin Of The Glorious Bomb Bit


In 2016, Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa started uploading a series of popular social media bits called “Glorious Bomb”. Talking on his newly created Twitch channel, “Johnny Wrestling” revealed how it all started from a mistake during the Cruiserweight Classic tournament. He said,

“When it was a Cruiserweight Classic. We were all practicing that Cruiserweight Classic. If you remember it, it was kind of a parade where we would all walk out and stand in the aisle. We were rehearsing that the night before really late. And they played the glorious song. And we all thought it was for the Cruiserweight Classic. We love the song. We fell in love with it immediately. Then we realize it wasn’t for the Cruiserweight Classic, it was for Bobby, but we still love the song. So I just remember, me and Tommaso, kind of came up with the idea at the gym. We were like, Hey, Bobby, we’re gonna do this thing called the ‘Glorious Bomb’, where we play the song, just raise it up and just kind of nod at the camera or something. So we did it at the gym and it blew up online and the social media guy came up to us like, Hey, this is like a thing. This is like a big thing.’ We’re like, ‘Oh, okay, I guess we got to do this more.’ So we started doing more like in the hotel and Bobby was a great sport too because we were like, ‘Hey Bobby, just stand here for a minute and we’re gonna do it.'”
