Johnny Gargano Wins NXT North American Championship

Johnny Gargano

Johnny Gargano beat Damian Priest and Leon Ruff at NXT’s WarGames on December 6, 2020 to become the brand’s first, three-time NXT North American Champion.

During the match, Gargano had some ‘help’ with a bunch of masked “Ghostfaces.” One of Gargano’s ‘helpers’ was able to knock out Damian Priest with a lead pipe allowing Johnny to focus on Leon Ruff. Gargano finished Ruff off with One Final Beat (his finishing move – a slingshot DDT) to win the title.

Today, Johnny Gargano posted on his Twitter that both he and his real life wife, Candice LeRae suffered injuries at WarGames and spent the night in the ER. Johnny had stitches in his mouth and LeRae is reportedly suffering from an arm injury.
