Angel Garza appears to be getting another shot at becoming a top star on WWE Raw because he’s getting pushed again after being kept on the bench for several months.
Garza defeated Drew Gulak last night on Monday Night Raw and then followed up by shoving a rose on Gulak’s mouth, similar to how Ted DiBiase would do with his opponents. DiBiase would shove money down the throat of his opponents.
It comes across as if Garza is a heel but, as noted on Wrestling Observer Radio by Bryan Alvarez, there are mixed signals being sent out to different people in the company.
Alvarez said, “Byron Saxton is the babyface announcer and he is disgusted by this, Corey Graves is the heel announcer and he thinks this was awesome. Also, for the record, the guy in the ThunderDome told everyone to make sure to cheer for Angel Garza. So, nobody knows what’s going on with Angel Garza.”
It’s an odd way to push someone. Perhaps, this will be corrected next week since Garza definitely came across as a heel last night. WWE will need to flesh out their characters before July when fans are allowed back at shows. It’s anyone’s guess how they will react to wrestlers like Drew McIntyre, who is being pushed as one of the top faces of the company.
