Adam Cole on working with Johnny Gargano in WWE
| Sport News Today | Yahoo news
Adam Cole said his iconic rivalry with Johnny Gargano on NXT was stressful due to the pressure of getting through the last match.
Speaking to the #DORK podcast, The Panama City Playboy spoke about the expectations it carried on its shoulders during one of the most iconic and best rivalries in NXT history.
“It’s very stressful, specifically with a guy like Johnny because Johnny Gargano and I are very close. I just spoke to him today. He’s a great friend of mine. We only wrestled once before our first in Brooklyn and it was 2010 at EVOLVE. It had been eight or nine years and we had been saying, ‘It would be really cool if we ever fought in a feature-length match on NXT.’ We had the first one, people really enjoyed it and there were a lot of eyes on it because it was the weekend of WrestleMania. Going into the second, it was incredibly stressful to say, ‘how the hell are we going to get through this one?’ (h / t: Fightful Select)
Adam Cole and Johnny Gargano fought in a trilogy of matches in 2019, all of them for the NXT Championship. The first was a 2-of-3 knockdown match won by Johnny Wrestling. The next two games saw Adam Cole emerge victorious.
All three matches took place on different NXT Takeover PPVs and both men brought down the house. Somehow, neither of them dropped the standards even though the quality of the match is high throughout.
