Gargano Addresses Davey Richards

The following recap has been issued:

Johnny Gargano took the time to talk to DJ Rallo of the, Sharp Shooter Press and he talked about a plethora of topics

Working Untouchable in Chicago against Akira Tozawa: love wrestling in Chicago, of course! I wait all year for these midwest shots.. as being from Cleveland myself, I'm a midwest boy to my core. I'm very excited to take on Tozawa. If you're a wrestling fan in the year 2011, I'm sure you've heard the name Akira Tozawa. I've seen quite a bit of his work, and he deserves every bit of praise he gets. I expect we're going to bring out the best in one another, and it'll be quite the encounter. Now that he's a member of Blood Warriors, there's a little added fuel on that fire. I'm glad the people in Chicago get to see that bad boy live!

Working in Dragon Gate, in Japan and Chris Jericho complimenting him: It was always a goal of mine to wrestle in Japan. So getting to go over there was really a dream come true. The over all way they treat professional wrestlers over there was really the only HUGE culture shock. They treat you like legitimate superstars. We'd be shopping in convenient stores before the shows and people would crowd around the windows just to get a look at us. It was crazy! Another cool little diddy is Chris Jericho is a huge idol of mine, and I pattern alot of my career after his.. So to find out that my tour was going to start in Korakuen Hall and end in Sumo Hall (Which is what Jericho did on one of his first tours) really blew my mind. Plus… Jericho actually Tweeted me "Good Luck, Have a great tour, and work SOLID!!!!!" which was something I really really appreciated.

Potential Davey Richards match and thoughts on "Best in the World" title: I've never wrestled Davey Richards. Ever. We've NEVER been in a ring together. I'm really enamored by the title of "The Best in The World".. the way I see it is that title is very subjective, wrestling is like art… who's to say that "abstract" art is the best? We all have our own likes and dislikes. Where as someone may say Davey is the best in the world.. someone could say that I (believe it or not) am the best in the world. Davey's awesome though, don't get me wrong, I highly respect him. He may in fact be one of the best wrestlers in the world bar none. As far as a potential match up.. I mean, the people would like to see it, and me being a wrestler wants to be in the ring with the best competition possible. I went 30 minutes with Bryan Danielson and I can honestly say he's the best wrestler I've ever been in the ring with, no doubt. Maybe Davey can make me change my mind on that.
