Johnny Gargano & Candice LeRae

It’s about the right time to start having a positive outlook for 2021.

That’s certainly the way Johnny Gargano is looking at things, and he hopes to get back to the atmosphere NXT has had in the past.

He discussed this in a recent interview with Wrestling Inc, saying a TakeOver in front of 15,000 people is one of his best wrestling experiences to date.

I think all of us are excited to get back to somewhat normal. We have to make the best of things in this era. We have been able to create new stars and create new people on the show that maybe wouldn’t have gotten a chance if there were crowds around.

For NXT, I think we have to go back to hopefully having the best atmosphere in the world. I put the TakeOver atmosphere with 15,000 people up against anything I’ve ever seen or been a part of. It is just special. Hopefully, we can get back to that. NXT in general I think we are really good at long-term storytelling. I think as long as we stick to that as our bread and butter, our future is very bright.

Before he gets to that though, he’s got the festive season to get through.

In the interview Gargano also discussed some of his and Candice LeRae’s festive traditions.

Candice is obviously very good at baking, so she bakes tons of cookies and does all that stuff as well. That is our Christmas Eve sort of thing. Christmas Day it’s Candice and I sort of have a tradition where we don’t put the presents out beforehand.

We wait until each other go to bed and then sneak out and put them out kind of like how Santa puts them out. That’s one of our things. I’m very excited for the next couple of weeks even though things are a bit different now. We’re going to make the best of it.
