Angel Garza Was Certain He Would Be Drafted To WWE SmackDown Due To Lack Of Latinos

For the most part, wrestlers don't seem where they are going to go when WWE holds its annual draft.

That was the case for many once again during the 2021 WWE Draft, but Angel Garza had a good idea where he and Humbert Carrillo would end up after he saw where Damian Priest was drafted on night two.

Speaking to WWE Espanol (translation courtesy of Luis Pulido), Garza commented on the WWE Draft.

“When we were looking at the draft, we did not know a thing about where we were going, we were just in the locker rooms looking at what was happening. We noticed that Rey & Dominik went to Raw and saw Zelina move too and we thought SmackDown is staying without Latinos, and 2 things were going to happen: or we were getting drafted over there or Damian (Priest) was leaving Raw. Us two (him & Humberto) were with Damian and we were saying 'or you leave or we leave' and then we saw Damian was drafted to Raw and we were 99% certain we were going to SmackDown because there were no Latinos at the moment. When we saw our names for SmackDown, we went 'we from here now' and it was a surprise. Like for everyone watching at home, we did not expect to be drafted to SmackDown," he said.

Garza and Carrillo made their presence felt on Friday's SmackDown, helping Happy Corbin & Madcap Moss defeat Rick Boogs & Shinsuke Nakamura in a Trick or Street Fight.
