From NXT breakout to RAW ladies man, Angel Garza is one talent who’s had a heck of a rise. The man himself had the chance to speak with ViBe & Wrestling about his quick ascension to Monday Night RAW and the numerous rivalries he’s been involved with on Monday Nights so far. The interview was conducted in Garza’s native Spanish, but ViBe & Wrestling has kindly provided a few key translations from the interview below:
On His Amazing 12 Months in the Company:
It is as I expected or even better. Since the end of 2019, it has been surprise after surprise after surprise. That is a motivation, but at the same time a lot of commitment to me as I know I have a huge company behind me, they trust me. I think I shouldn’t lower the guard at the moment because if I settle, I would lose those opportunities.
Everything started with the Breakout Tournament, which unfortunately was not achieved, but then came the Cruiserweight Championship, my first NXT TakeOver (that was Worlds Collide), and I got called to the main roster and finally, I am in the new Raw banner on the website… it’s like: ‘let me stop for a while and enjoy the moment’. I am proud because we bring the flag of Latinos well high and we are showing that we’re not playing anymore.
On Rivalries with Rey Mysterio, Lio Rush, and Kevin Owens:
Regarding which of my opponent is my favorite, it’s between Kevin Owens and when I “retired” Rey Mysterio for some months. But if we are talking about pure wrestling I think the match that put my career on the map was the one against Lio Rush when we left our souls in the ring for more than 15-20 minutes and the people were at the edge of their seats. I think those shows for me were pure adrenaline running through my veins; that was something really impressive, believe me. There are few words to describe that but those encounters have been my favorites not
just in WWE but in my entire career.
On Current Rey Mysterio Storyline Involving Dominik and Rollins:
There is a reason why we are the number one company worldwide, I think it is a story where families are being involved where they are already really talking about the retirement of a legend like Rey, where also new young talent is been presented and he is involving his own son. I think it has all the factors to become one of the greatest stories he’s ever had in WWE and I think that there are no better words to describe it.
