Backstage News & Details on Johnny Gargano & Candice LeRae Returning to WWE

– Husband-and-wife duo Johnny Gargano and Candice LeRae are both back in WWE after a stint as free agents and according to a report from, their returns to the company went as expected. When Gargano left the company late last year, he made it clear that he wanted to take some time off to concentrate on his family and would be back “on his time frame” and WWE was happy to accept that. Gargano remained on WWE’s good side even after declining to sign a new contract as he handled his exit with “incredible professionalism”, putting over younger talent like Austin Theory on his way out.

– While free agents, Gargano and LeRae were believed to have been talking to the “major companies” in wrestling, with talks intensifying a month prior to Johnny returning to WWE. All that is known is that among the big three North American promotions, IMPACT didn’t seem to be a serious destination for the duo. While many believed that when Gargano returned to wrestling it would be for WWE (as there was mutual interest), when Vince McMahon fell out of power and Triple H rose to lead talent/creative, it not only sealed the deal regarding his return, but likely hastened it as well.
