3 best opponents for Johnny Gargano on the main roster
The SummerSlam weekend has begun as NXT Takeover delivered an action-packed show. NXT Takeover: Toronto certainly put on one great show, but it was not among the greatest Takeover shows. The show had some good matches and the main event stole the show.
The most coveted prize of the developmental brand was on the line when Adam Cole faced Johnny Gargano. The two men locked horns in a 2 out-of 3 Falls Match and they certainly produced one of the best matches of the year, if not the best.
Since they already faced each other twice in the past, it was their third match. While Cole retained the belt after a hard-fought battle, Gargano bid farewell to the NXT Universe, which could suggest his departure from the developmental brand.
Although Gargano made his main roster debut earlier this year, he didn't stay long as the former NXT Champion went back to the black & yellow brand. Following the NXT Takeover in Toronto, it could be his final exit from NXT. Let's discuss three possible opponents for Johnny Gargano if he returns to the main roster.
#3 Rey Mysterio
Rey Mysterio could a suitable opponent as he could put over a new talent like Johnny Gargano. The former WWE Champion doesn't have a match at the Biggest Party of the Summer. Last week, Mysterio fought Andrade, and the latter pinned the former. Despite having a rivalry with Andrade, the feud doesn't have a proper direction.
Since returning to Vince McMahon's company last year, Rey Mysterio is having an ordinary run. Although Mysterio grabbed the US Championship, an injury forced him to relinquish the belt.
Rey Mysterio, who is certainly a titanic name of the company, could be a great challenge for Gargano if the latter wants to make a good first impression. Both Mysterio and Gargano are high-flyers and their matches should be exciting for the fans.
