NXT superstar Johnny Gargano has finally broken his Twitter silence. Gargano tweeted and posted on Instagram the announcement of his NXT return. Although the latest NXT tapings occurred a couple weeks ago, where Gargano did make an in-ring promo, the broadcast has been confirmed for the July 12 episode of NXT on the WWE Network.
On Tuesday night, Gargano tweeted.

It was his first tweet since May 20, which was a message prior to his NXT TakeOver: Chicago main-event match with then-DIY partner Tommaso Ciampa against NXT Tag Team Champions The Authors of Pain in a Ladder Match. On top of losing the match, Ciampa turned and viciously attacked Gargano.
As Top Rope Press reported, Ciampa has suffered an injury and will likely be out of action until March 2018. Before taking a hiatus from NXT, Ciampa delivered an in-ring promo during the May 31 NXT episode. More than a month later, Johnny Wrestling will finally make his television return.
