Vince McMahon reportedly looks at Angel Garza and sees a young version of a WWE Hall of Famer.
Angel Garza quickly moved from being the NXT Cruiserweight Champion to being a part of the Monday Night Raw brand. While that all happened because of happenstance and Andrade getting suspended for 30 days, Angel Garza is now being viewed as a potential future key player in WWE.
According to a report by Alex McCarthy of talkSPORT, Vince McMahon sees a younger version of Eddie Guerrero in Angel Garza. On the surface, there are some basic similarities. both have a strong knack for in-ring ability, exude comfort on the microphone, and both are of Mexican descent.
Prior to his tragic death in 2005, Eddie Guerrero became the first Mexican WWE Champion in history and Vince McMahon was one of the very first people to congratulate Guerrero on his victory in February of 2004.
Angel Garza was called up to the brand by former WWE Raw Executive Director, Paul Heyman and Fightful Select exclusively reported that prior to being moved up to Raw, the only thing Vince McMahon knew about Angel Garza was that he was the cousin of Humberto Carrillo.
In recent weeks, his role on the brand has expanded and he has been featured in matches against WWE Champion Drew McIntyre and has remained a prominent figure in the United States Championship picture.
Angel Garza can be seen every Monday night on Raw alongside Zelina Vega.
