Johnny Gargano showed off an ultimate new gear fusion and brought back his original "Rebel Heart" theme music for NXT WarGames! As reports continued to swirl about Johnny Gargano ending his contract with WWE after the events of WarGames, fans had been getting themselves ready for what could be the end. Making matters even more emotional was Gargano himself teasing that it might be his first and last WarGames match as part of the WWE NXT roster, and upon his entrance to the match, Gargano took one final victory lap as he embraced what will likely be his final outing with NXT.
Gargano had entered the match with not only the return of his classic "Rebel Heart" theme, but found a way to honor all of his matches over the course of his tenure. Fans had come to love seeing Gargano enter each of these pay-per-view events because of how he often showed major love to comic books through his in-ring gear, but this one was different. Taking all of the gear he was worn throughout the years and fusing them all into one, it's quite the final look. You can check out a much closer look from designer Jonathan Davenport and Main Event Gear on Instagram below:

First...and Maybe Last
Take this in.
Gargano had never stepped into #NXTWarGames until now.
This is one last ride in NXT.
One of the last things to resemble the NXT we loved.
