Mr. McMahon

– As noted, top indie stars Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa worked a tag team match at Thursday’s WWE NXT TV at Full Sail University. EVOLVE mentioned this blurb on Gargano working the tapings in their e-mail blast today:

“Congrats to Johnny Gargano on his return to NXT last night. The upcoming weeks of NXT on Wednesday nights on the WWE Network should be very interesting. Gargano is still with WWN and he will return home to EVOLVE this weekend. We are very proud when we look at the NXT tapings and WWE TV every week and see many names from WWN including Gargano, Apollo Crews, Solomon Crowe, Neville, Kalisto, Luke Harper and Dean Ambrose among others. You can jump on the bandwagon now and support the new generation with EVOLVE this week.”
