During the latest episode of The Sessions with Renee Paquette, former NXT Champion Johnny Gargano joined the show to talk about a wide range of topics.
On his last night in WWE NXT, Gargano had an interaction with Shawn Michaels backstage where he gifted him a shadow box.
“I did like tribute gear to him at the In Your House: TakeOver,” said Gargano. “And I had a headband and no one in the world has a piece of the TakeOver gear I’ve worn so me and Candice the night before did a little shadow box and we did the shadow box with the headband in it and we put a picture of me and him dressed in gear and then me and him when I was a kid and I met him.
“Side by side pictures. Then I wrote a nice message on the back as well about how much he meant to me and how much he’s meant to my career. I was to give that to him right before I went through the curtain. Obviously, he started crying, I started crying, and then it’s funny because Candice has never seen me cry so that was kind of like the first time she had ever seen me cry. She was very adamant that if I didn’t cry when the baby was born, I was going to be in big trouble.”
