More specifically, Ciampa's bitch.
In April, Johnny Wrestling won his place back on the roster by beating that bellend in New Orleans in an unsanctioned match. At the time, the Dude was OVER AS F*** as a pure babyface.
Following the conclusion (or so we thought) of his story arc, he goes on to gift Blackheart the NXT Title by getting involved in Alister Black's title defense. Johnny Wrestling turns into Johnny Failure/Dumbass by losing to Ciampa at successive Takeovers thanks to his own bloodlust and stupidity when he had that asshole beat.
Then Johnny turns heel by embracing the dark side. This is despite the fact that he lost twice to Ciampa by punishing Tommy further when he had the match in the bag, and in time becomes the goon for Blackheart.
So NXT turned the most over and natural face in the company into a loser heel who is now the goon of the heel he had beaten at successive takeovers before descending into bloodlust and stupidity. Sure, there is a redemption angle for Gargano (unless NXT decide to do HEAT HEAT HEAT!), but we had one earlier this year, and it looks to be leading to ANOTHER NO DQ MATCH BETWEEN GARGANO AND CIAMPA HEADLINING A TAKEOVER.
It's also worth noting that Ciampa and Gargano have been in NXT since 2015. These are two dudes that did not need much seasoning, if any. They should not be spending so much time in developmental, and with Bryan turning heel, now would have been an ideal time to bring Johnny Wrestling to the main roster, instead of him going over old ground in NXT.
Instead, as Johnny Failure, he'll probably spend even more time in NXT.
