Johnny Gargano Ruled Out of NXT TakeOver: War Games Due to Neck Injury

Pro Wrestling Sheet has learned Johnny Gargano is unable to wrestle at NXT TakeOver: War Games due to a neck injury.

Editor-in-Chief Ryan Satin first reported the news on tonight’s edition of WWE Backstage on FS1.

According to sources, WWE management was hoping to have Gargano wrestle against Finn Balor at the event taking place during Survivor Series weekend.

However, due to the neck injury, that won’t be possible.

The severity of the injury is unclear at this time.

Gargano last appeared on NXT TV in a segment involving Finn Balor landing his finisher on Johnny on the ramp to launch a heel turn.
