Johnny Gargano sounded like he was saying goodbye to NXT/WWE fans after NXT War Games (Video)

The contract status of Johnny Gargano with the WWE and NXT seemed uncertain. But after Sunday night, we may have seen the end of his tenure with the company.

Gargano signed a one-week extension to stay with the promotion because he wanted to compete at NXT War Games on Sunday, which he did.

After the show, Gargano spoke to the live crowd and sure sounded like someone who is saying goodbye to everyone.

The 34-year-old is expected to address his future with NXT and WWE on Tuesday night, when NXT 2.0 is aired on the USA Network.

One other hint that Gargano dropped was his social media post earlier in the day.

The rumor mill has Gargano leaving for AEW like several other former NXT stars have done; Aleister Black (now Malaki Black), Andrade, Ruby Soho (Ruby Riott) and the most recent ones; Adam Cole and Bobby Fish.

Kyle O’Reilly could be headed there too, as could Kevin Owens, and Gargano may be following suit too.
