WWE posted exclusive footage (view above) of Johnny Gargano receiving a standing ovation from the fans in attendance at Scotiabank Arena after last night’s NXT TakeOver: Toronto went off the air.

Gargano, with his wife Candance LeRae by his side, also received loud “Thank you Johnny!” chants from the fans.

When Gargano and LeRae were on the stage heading to the backstage area, NXT General Manager William Regal met Gargano on the stage, spoke to him and then raised his arm.

Johnny Gargano was unsuccessful in his attempt to defeat Adam Cole in a 2-out-of-3 Falls Match for the NXT Championship.
