Johnny Gargano and Kyle O’Reilly said their goodbyes to WWE on Tuesday during their NXT episode. There were many that believed they would be done while others expected it to be a negotiation tactic.

The belief within NXT was that both men would be signing new deals with WWE and they would both be returning. Johnny Gargano certainly didn’t see things that way and is opting to test free agency to find out what his options are. Kyle O’Reilly will apparently be doing the same thing.

There are many promotions out there that would love to sign the Ohio native.  The WWE veteran will have many options and it will be interesting to see who offers the best deal to sign him.
