Female independent wrestling star Candice LeRae, the real-life wife of Johnny Gargano, gave the following update on Johnny after last night's NXT TakeOver: Chicago event where Tommasso Ciampa turned on Gargano following their incredible Ladder Match against Paul Ellering's Authors of Pain:
"Johnny is hurting physically, mentally, and we’re drained emotionally. It was a long night and we appreciate everyone’s kind words. It’s going to be a process, but my husband is resilient and will be back stronger than ever ASAP.
We will try to keep you updated on his progress. For now, this is all I can say on the matter. I have no words for the absolutely selfish acts of this person we believed was apart of our family.
Thank you all for your love and support."
