Johnny Gargano failed to defeat Adam Cole at TakeOver: Toronto, but that didn’t stop the crowd from giving him a huge ovation on his way out.
NXT shared a video after the event showing Candice LeRae embracing her husband in the ring after his NXT Championship loss in a 2 out of 3 falls match.
The crowd loudly chants “Thank You, Johnny” as Gargano soaks in the adulation.
He and his wife then walk to the top of their ramp where they’re met by NXT General Manager William Regal. All three share a moment on the stage as the crowd continues showing Johnny love.
In case you missed it, Cole retained the title after he and Gargano took a crazy fall off the cage.
Watch the post-TakeOver video below.
