News on Angel Garza's Future & Pronunciation of His First Name


— Angel Garza meanwhile is still considered an “NXT guy” but will remain on Raw as a fill-in for Andrade, reports the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. His presence allows WWE to keep Humberto Carrillo in a program while at the same time keeping Zelina Vega on TV as well. His long-term future hasn’t yet been decided yet as Garza could be returned to NXT when Andrade returned or he could remain on Raw full-time, as observers have noted his charisma and strong work in the ring.

— The pronunciation of his first name as An-gel or An-hel, he himself has apparently pushed the idea of pronouncing it like An-gel because he wants his character to be like an “angel”, yet act like the devil for merchandising purposes. This change came about after he previously was pronouncing his name as “An-hel” instead.
