It’s Monday once more folks, which means another iteration of WWE Monday Night Raw is upon us! We’ve got a familial bout that’s been building for the past few weeks, with Humberto Carrillo taking on Angel Garza! Jordan Huie of the Overtimer here to give you the full coverage you’ve come to know, including live recaps and results from the show as they come, plus previews of what we can expect to see here this evening! Plenty to talk about and the show is already underway here so let’s not waste any time getting into this one!
Humberto Carrillo vs. Angel Garza
This one has been in the making for quite some time, fair to say. This began as Humberto Carrillo vs. Andrade, a feud that revolved around vicious attacks, got the legendary Rey Mysterio involved on a regular basis and also included the WWE United States Championship. Humberto Carrillo finally made his return after getting sent onto concrete with a Hammerlock DDT last month and challenged Andrade at the 2020 WWE Royal Rumble pre-show, then again the very next night.
But both times, Humberto failed to take the US title off of him, and the second time was largely thanks to the help of Zelina Vega. And that was too much for the babyfaced babyface, as he assaulted Andrade after the fact and hit a Hammerlock DDT onto the concrete to put him out of action, just as he had done prior! This was to cover for the fact that Andrade was suspended on a Wellness Policy violation that week. To keep the feud alive, Zelina Vega than brought up NXT’s Angel Garza, cousin of Humberto, to come mess with him.
In the weeks since, Angel has faced off with Rey Mysterio and constantly been a thorn in the side of Carrillo. Tonight, the two family members finally face off on WWE Monday Night Raw. Conveniently, they will do so just days before the US Champ is set to return! You can probably see where this is going. After this week, Humberto will go back to feuding with Andrade directly and pursue the US title yet again. What that means is that tonight may well be Angel’s swansong on Raw. He’s still considered an NXT talent mind, basically just here for a short-term feud. In other words… Humberto over.
