NXT superstar and current North American champion Johnny Gargano recently spoke with Sportskeeda to talk about his new goal, which is to solidify his legacy by having a strong title run.
The one thing I haven’t done yet is have a legitimate title run. For me, being the underdog, I was always more about the chase than the actual title and holding it and defending it. That’s the one blemish on my legacy; not being able to hold the title, not being able to defend it, not having a run with it. That is the number one goal on my mind right now. Also, I want to build NXT for the future. I want to help others and propel them to where I think they should be and help NXT reach a higher platform. I think NXT is a viable third brand and I firmly believe that. The idea of developmental needs to die.
Gargano is now in his third reign with the NXT N.A. title after reclaiming it at this past Sunday’s Takeover WarGames pay per view. He is also a former NXT world and tag champion. Check out the full interview below. (H/T and transcribed by Fightful)
