WWE NXT Champion and Cleveland Native Johnny Gargano Stops by the Browns Complex in Berea

If you know anything about pro wrestling in Cleveland, you know the name Johnny Gargano.

Gargano has been an icon in local pro wrestling circles for a long time, and he has worked all his way to the big leagues in the WWE and is the current NXT champion.

Staying true to his roots, Gargano has stayed a huge Cleveland sports fan, and Tuesday took the NXT title belt to the Browns practice complex out in Berea, showing it off to new coach Freddie Kitchens and the team.

Gargano’s tour of the Cleveland teams will continue Wednesday, as he will throw out the first pitch of the 1:10pm game at Progressive Field when the Indians take on the Miami Marlins.

Cleveland is not only represented in the WWE right now by Gargano, but also by Mike ‘The Miz’ Mizanin, who not only is one of the most popular WWE stars but also has a reality show with his wife called ‘Miz & Mrs’ on the USA Network on Tuesday nights.

Matt Loede has been a part of the Cleveland Sports Media for over 21 years, with experience covering Major League Baseball, National Basketball Association, the National Football League and even high school and college events. He has been a part of the Cleveland Indians coverage since the opening of Jacobs/Progressive Field in 1994, and spent two and a half years covering the team for 92.3 The Fan, and covers them daily for Associated Press Radio.
