Johnny Gargano just wants everyone to be nice, I guess

A couple of tweets from Johnny Gargano:

This is such a strange thing, because pro wrestling is such a strange business. This seems to be Johnny Gargano not being the character he plays on NXT but rather the actual person telling people to be nicer on social media. Then again, are fans supposed to be nice to, say, the heels of wrestling? If people were actually just “good dudes” as he says, wouldn’t that mean we would never have heat?

I’m obviously not advocating for any sort of verbal abuse via Twitter simply because a wrestler plays a bad guy on television. That said, a wrestler using a social media account to get heat as their television character would almost make it a good thing fans are being negative to them.


I don’t know.

This weird little thought exercise could only exist in the wrestling world.
