In an interview with WWE Die Woche, WWE RAW superstar Johnny Gargano discussed several topics, including his in-ring return, a possible reunion with Tommaso Ciampa on the main roster, potential opponents at WrestleMania and more.

Highlights of the interview are below:

On his in-ring return and Chad Gable being his first opponent upon his WWE return: “I’m very sore, I just spent the whole morning with a massage gun on my left shoulder and back, because again, and I can’t stress this enough, I went from literally doing nothing. Sure, I was training and I’d been in the ring the last three weeks in the Performance Center, but for the first time on TV, you saw me do my spear, you saw me do my DDT, any of the moves I hadn’t done that in 9 months, so what you saw on RAW was the first time I’ve done any of those moves in 9 months, so I am still in my head and obviously I’m a perfectionist, so there’s still some ring rust I’ve got to knock off, still some things I’ve got to get back in shape, as far as that goes. I felt great, obviously it felt good to be back, to hear the crowd again and to be me again, it felt great, but it’s a great first step, the work is far from done and I’m far from a finished product, and I do believe things are going to get better and better every single time. Chad Gable is amazing, Chad Gable is one of the most underrated talents in the world, and I will be very on-record of saying that. Chad Gable is such a talent, so underrated and I think the world of him honestly.”

On a potential DIY reunion with Tommaso Ciampa: “You never know, me and Tommaso obviously have been linked forever. As long as we are both in the same company, even if we’re not in the same company, I think we will always be linked together, I think D.I.Y. will always be linked together the same way you think about, luckily, I’m not comparing us to them, but I mean, look at Shawn Michaels and Triple H. You think about Shawn Michaels, you think about Triple H. You think about Triple H, you think about Shawn Michaels, so they kind of go hand-in-hand, whether it’s foes or friends, and I think the same can be said about me and Tommaso. As foes or friends, we will always be linked together, so you never know what can happen.”

On potential WrestleMania opponents: “Oh boy, man that’s tough. I know there’s a lot of people out there that would love to see me, and Tommaso have a WrestleMania match. Our story throughout the years is obviously very well documented, and the fact we never really got to end our story how we wanted to on a big stage. I mean, there is no bigger stage than WrestleMania, and what a story that could be told there if me and Tommaso actually had a WrestleMania match one year. That would be incredibly cool for both of us, and for our story. I’ve mentioned a lot of guys, Seth Rollins, AJ Styles, Rey Mysterio, Edge, Randy Orton, the list goes on and on, there’s so many great talents out there, I’m not going to peg myself into one spot and say I want this match at WrestleMania, because there’s so many different matches there could potentially be.”
