5 reasons why Johnny Gargano can be the next great WWE Superstar
Johnny Gargano isn't your prototypical WWE Superstar. That perhaps is his greatest strength and his greatest weakness. Gargano toiled on the independent scene for years before signing with WWE, and he immediately proved that he belongs in the promotion.
Gargano is inherently a likeable character. He fits in perfectly as the underdog babyface that WWE seems to be running out of. In the short amount of time he has been in the WWE, Gargano's popularity skyrocketed, making him one of the most popular Superstars on the NXT roster.
Let us now look at why he can be a great Superstar on the main roster.
#5 Ability to connect with the audience
At NXT TakeOver: Philadelphia, Gargano, at least for the evening, was the most popular Superstar in town. Akin to the Rocky Balboa-Apollo Creed fight, where the Philly crowd got behind the hometown hero, willing him to take the fight to Creed, the fans at NXT TakeOver wished and willed Gargano to bring the fight to Andrade 'Cien' Almas.
Gargano doesn't have the chiselled physique that has, for many years, remained as the main criteria to become a big name in the company. The one thing Gargano has, and which has worked for him throughout his wrestling career, is his ability to connect with the fans. The wrestling fans want to see themselves in the WWE Superstars and live vicariously through them.
Johnny Gargano might not be the biggest or the strongest Superstar in the WWE locker room, but when it comes to heart, Johnny 'Wrestling' will stand out every single time.
