- WWE.com sat down with Johnny Gargano to discuss his EVOLVE farewell last weekend. His final match with EVOLVE will take place tonight at EVOLVE 69 as he teams with Cody Rhodes to face Chris Hero and Drew Galloway. Gargano commented on coming to RAW to work the new cruiserweight division this month:
"I was actually at my bachelor party when the clip aired on Raw. My phone started blowing up with people saying they saw me. As a wrestling fan, Raw’s the flagship, what we tune into every single week. When you think of wrestling, you think of Raw. To think that there’s going to be guys like me, and when I say that, I mean the cruiserweights — I’ve known a lot of them and wrestled them before WWE. These guys are like me, they were told through their entire career that they were too small and would never make it or be on Monday Night Raw. For all of us to be coming there together is super cool. We’re all excited to show the world what we can do. There’s a New Era in WWE, and we’re going to prove that."
