As was previously reported, SmackDown Live General Manager Daniel Bryan stated over the weekend that he was actually hoping that Johnny Gargano would lose his match against Tommaso Ciampa at NXT TakeOver: New Orleans, so that way Gargano would become a free agent and possibly end up on SD Live.
Gargano posted the following on Twitter in response to Bryan:
I appreciate it, @WWEDanielBryan. Rain check? I have a few more things I need to accomplish in @WWENXT first..— Johnny Gargano (@JohnnyGargano) April 8, 2018
PS: I can't wait to watch you back in the ring where you belong today at the freaking Superdome! ❤ https://t.co/dCPenzEvLD
