WWE United States Champion Austin Theory successfully defended his title against Seth Rollins, Bronson Reed, Johnny Gargano, Damian Priest, and Montez Ford in an Elimination Chamber Match at the PLE on Saturday night.
Gargano had a stand-out performance in the match and was praised by Triple H at the post-event press conference.
Gargano also had special ring gear for the bout. Johnny and Candice LeRae’s son Quill had his first birthday this week and Gargano wanted to celebrate it so he had gear made.
Gear designer Jonathan Davenport, who has come up with ring gear designs for Gargano, LeRae, Kofi Kingston, Big E, Ricochet, Bayley, and other WWE stars, shared the cool story behind the gear with this post on Instagram:
“This set was a HUGE honor to work on – earlier this week, @johnnygargano and @candicelerae ‘s son Quill had his first birthday and this SuperDad wanted to celebrate with a colorway inspired by Bluey and Bandit. My family ADORES this show so I flipped at the chance to incorporate those aesthetics into our palette!
It was Johnny’s idea to add Bandit’s whisker flecks to the dark blue fields, which I think was stroke of genius. I surprised Johnny with a ‘quill”‘ easter egg on the right kneepad just for the fun factor!
Big thanks goes out to @maineventgear for once again honoring the design while also putting their own unique spin on the set! Enjoy!”
