Today at WWE’s WrestleMania 34 Axxess, SmackDown Live General Manager Daniel Bryan made an appearance to answer some questions from Dasha Fuentes. One of the questions posed to Bryan was who on NXT he would like to sign, the GM revealing that he wants Johnny Gargano to lose at tonight’s NXT TakeOver: New Orleans so that he can get him on SmackDown. Of course, Gargano will be taking on Tommaso Ciampa in an Unsanctioned Match where if Johnny loses, he must leave NXT for good. You can hear Bryan’s full remarks below, followed by a retort from Tommaso Ciampa himself:
