Dragon Gate USA Champion Johnny Gargano Leaving For WWE?



Rumors hit Twitter and wrestling message boards this weekend saying that top Dragon Gate USA star Johnny Gargano is on his way out of the company before this month is over. Gargano is scheduled to defend his Open the Freedom Gate Title at the July 27th DGUSA show in Michigan and the rumor is that he will drop the title then to Akira Tozawa.

The speculation is that Gargano will sign with WWE and be sent to their FCW developmental territory. He had a tryout with WWE last year that went well.

Gargano has been on WWE’s radar for some time now. WWE was interested in signing a handful of DGUSA wrestlers – Sami Callihan, Brodie Lee and Gargano. Lee is currently wrestling in FCW as Luke Harper.
