At most engrossing 27 years of age, Garza has barely a lot of wrestling forward of him, and he may safe a huge gamble to change into one of WWE’s prime stars if Vince’s idea of him is nice.
It’s easy to gaze how any individual may well gather an Eddie vibe from Garza, especially since his “Lethal Lothario” persona in all equity similar to Guerrero’s “Latino Warmth” gimmick. Garza most incessantly hits on interviewer Charly Caruso, whereas Guerrero became as soon as in a storyline relationship with Chyna early in his WWE tenure.
Garza is in a stable with Andrade and Zelina Vega, nonetheless there had been main complications between Garza and Andrade, this potential that there is known as a idea in location to interrupt them up and allow Garza to rush off on his bear rapidly.
Seeing as he honest currently beat archaic Neatly-liked champion Kevin Owens in a match, the sky can be the restrict for Garza.
There is a pair of uncertainty referring to whether or now not a pair of of the young skill getting pushed in most up-to-date months below Paul Heyman will continue to be utilized in that blueprint now that Heyman has been relieved of his tasks as Raw executive director and replaced by Bruce Prichard.
