Johnny Gargano’s return to WWE was a great success for the #DIY member, despite him not being under contract when he appeared on TV.

Gargano returned to WWE in August of 2022 as part of several rehirings. He had let his contract expire with WWE NXT in December of 2021.

On a recent edition of the “Insight” podcast, Gargano recalled his return to WWE and revealed that he wasn’t under contract at the time. He said,

“No one knew. The only people who knew I was back in the company, and I wasn’t even officially under contract yet– Terms were agreed upon and I was ready to go. But I wasn’t officially back back yet. That’s luckily the way it was kept under wraps too. The only people who knew was me, my agent, Candice and I think Hunter and maybe one other person in TR [talent relations] and that was it.”

More recently, Gargano has been teaming with Tomasso Ciampa as part of #DIY on Monday Night RAW, but the pair has yet to capture the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships.
