WWE SmackDown Live General Manager Daniel Bryan recently participated in a Q&A session as part of WrestleMania Axxess and revealed that he would actually like to see Johnny Gargano lose his match against Tommaso Ciampa tonight at NXT TakeOver because Bryan would like to have Johnny on SmackDown Live:
“I have known one person specifically for a while. There is a ton of talent in NXT, I mean the tag match that you guys just saw with Jack Gallagher, Martin Stone (Danny Burch), Tony Nese and Oney Lorcan.. I mean those guys are just so talented. There are so many people on NXT who are extremely talented.
"But there is one guy I want to lose tonight because I want to steal him and that is Johnny Gargano. I am making it public, I want Johnny Gargano on SmackDown Live!”
