However, it looks like Vince McMahon is keen to keep hold of one superstar after his contract expires. According to the latest reports, WWE officials are willing to make a new offer to NXT superstar, Johnny Gargano.

The former NXT champion’s contract expires on Friday, December 3rd, and WWE has already made a ‘very strong offer’ in a bid to re-sign him.

Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Radio revealed that Vince McMahon is concerned that Gargano’s contract is going to finish next month. The exact same situation occurred with Adam Cole, whose contract expired and then he signed with AEW.

“Johnny Gargano has not signed a new contract, but WWE is pushing very hard for him to do so and evidently made a very strong offer for him to stay here for a long time. His deal is up 12/3,” reported Meltzer.

However, with this new ‘revamped’ NXT, will Gargano stay with Vince McMahon any longer? According to the WWE Universe, Gargano should have debuted on the main roster a while ago.

Eventually, only time will tell whether the former champ will sign a new deal for the company or not. If not, then AEW is always willing to hire top talents of WWE.
