Barclays Center is the WWE home of Johnny Gargano, Austin Theory
Well, it’s official: Johnny Gargano’s undefeated streak is officially over. He won’t become an undefeated WWE Superstar, his record will be tarnished forever, and after watching his wife, Candice LeRae, lose her match against Dakota Kai thanks to interference from Bayley and IYO SKY, he’s pretty sure to say that the Gargano family will not be very happy when the couple returns to Quill in Orlando.
But hey, while the rest of the WWE Universe eagerly awaits Gunther-Sheamus II on Smack downor to a Extreme Rules “Premium Live Event” which will feature matches like Liv Morgan vs. Ronda Rousey in an Extreme Rules match for the SmackDown Women’s Championship, Bianca Belair vs. Bayley in a Ladder match for the RAW Women’s Championship, Matt Riddle and Seth Rollins in a fight Pit match, and potentially the return of Bray Wyatt in the culmination of White Rabbit’s story, Gargano’s plans will have to wait a little longer. Why? Because he has a match with Austin Theory, who interfered in Otis’ match with Gargano, after being haunted by his former NXT pal since his debut in September.
Finally, Gargano will be able to put Theory in its place; finally, he’ll be able to prove he’s the best male performer of The Way, and finally, after a brutal year where “A-Town’s Finest” gave the entire WWE Universe tweaks with his unique brand of not so endearing butt kiss, the scourge of the main roster will be returned to its place in a good game. More F5s from Brock Lesnar, more punches from Tyson Fury, just the ringing of the bell, grappling back and forth and a 1-2-3 to announce a winner.
But where, you might ask, is Theory’s place in the greater WWE universe? Well, as Johnny Wrestling’s NXT lackey, of course.

WWE’s Johnny Gargano wants to put Austin Theory in his place.
Catching up with Kevin Egan backstage after his controversial Theory-influenced match — and his first WWE loss — with the “Tree Trunk” himself, Otis, Gargano tried to set the record straight when it came to his relationship with Mr. Money in the Bank.
“Before he was the youngest United States Champion, before he was the youngest Mr. Money in the Bank, he was known as Johnny Gargano’s lackey in NXT,” Gargano told Egan. “And I don’t care what he does, I don’t care where he goes, I don’t care what he does with that briefcase, he will always be Johnny Gargano’s lackey. That’s what he’s known for. »
Gargano then talked about the location of his date BELIEVED match with Theory, the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, a place of incredible significance to his career in the WWE Universe.
“Next week, Brooklyn, the Barclays Center, the barclays center, the place where I wrestled my first Takeover, the place where I won the NXT Championship. Barclays Center is the home of Johnny Wrestling. Johnny Gargano, Austin Theory, Monday Night RAW, finally, ultimately, me and Theory, one-on-one. I’ll remind him that he’s just Johnny Gargano’s lackey.
On Monday, Gargano and the rest of the WWE Universe will find out firsthand if his Brooklyn-based lucky streak continues as part of the main roster, or if his luck is locked on the old Black and Gold brand.
