WWE Superstar Johnny Gargano recently revealed that a video package featuring The Undertaker and Shawn Michaels forced him to return to WWE.
In a way, he has given the credit of his comeback to both these legends. In case you missed it, only a few weeks ago, Johnny Gargano made a WWE return.
Johnny Gargano left Wrestling completely after his contract with WWE expired in December 2021.
However, on the 22nd August 2022 episode of Raw, Johnny Wrestling made his return.
Johnny Gargano appeared on After The Bell podcast a while back. He talked about a lot of things during the podcast.
A Kate Bush Video was the reason to Johnny Gargano’s return to wrestling
He explained that a viral song by Kate Bush called ‘Running Up That Hill’ which featured in the famous show Stranger Things, reminded the former NXT Champion of The Undertaker and Shawn Michaels’ match. It was from here that Gargano made up his mind to return to the ring.
“The first thing that popped into my head was ‘wait a minute, that’s Shawn [Michaels] vs The Undertaker’s song from WrestleMania’. But that’s where my mind went, i was like ‘I remember that.’ I watched the hype video for Shawn and Taker from Mania.”
“I sat there in the kitchen i watched this hype video and it just hit me watching this video, I was like ‘this is what I wanna do, like I want, this is where I wanna be and this is what I wanna do, this is why I got into this.'” (31:42 – 32:53) (Transcript by Sportskeeda)
The historic WrestleMania match between The Undertaker and Shawn Michaels took place in 2010, where The Phenom retired Michaels.
However, after 8 years, Michaels returned to wrestling, teaming up with Triple H to compete against The Undertaker and Kane. He had won this historic match in Australia.
