A scary incident occurred during WWE NXT’s latest TV tapings at Full Sail University, Orlando, Florida, leading to the stoppage of action.
The pandemic has given WWE a chance to keep away from live audiences, and they have taken the opportunity to tape multiple weeks of programming at once, to edit and reedit it in order to polish it into a finished product for television.
The incident reportedly happened during a match between Johnny Gargano and relative newcomer Ridge Holland. The match was a second chance qualifier in the tournament that is being featured in NXT programming these days.
When Johnny Wrestling took a scary bump on his head in the middle of the match, it was promptly stopped. With the action stopped, NXT Boss Triple H and WWE Performance Center head trainer Shawn Michaels came down to check on Gargano, who seemed to be injured.
The NXT Taping Was Restarted After The Scare
It is being speculated that the former NXT Champion was not injured from the bump, but it sure was close. The match was later restarted and completed, and would obviously be edited to complete the parts into an unbroken match between the two talents. Reportedly, Gargano went on to apologize to everyone in the taping for the production delay caused by him.
Johnny Gargano is easily one of the most accomplished wrestlers in NXT history. As a singles performer and a tag team wrestler alongside frenemy Tommasso Ciampa, he has been incredible. As a face, he was one of the most cheered wrestlers in the industry and as a heel, he has made the same fans jeer him.
Gargano is a former NXT Champion, NXT North American Champion, and NXT Tag Team Champion (with Tommaso Ciampa). While he was once sent to main roster in a brief run, he has declared his intent to forever remain in the Black and Gold brand of WWE.
Before joining WWE, Gargano worked for some of the top promotions on the American independent circuit, including Chikara, Dragon Gate USA (DGUSA), Evolve and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG). Titles Gargano held include the Chikara Campeonatos de Parejas, the Evolve Tag Team Championship and DGUSA’s Open the Freedom Gate Championship, which he held twice with his first reign lasting a record 873 days. During his independent days, Gargano also made appearances for national promotions Ring of Honor (ROH) and Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA).
