Angel Garza set for WWE 205 Live Captain's Challenge match


NXT's Angel Garza is set to make his 205 Live debut this coming Tuesday.

There will be a five-on-five Captain's Challenge match on the show. In storyline, Drew Gulak and Oney Lorcan are each picking four partners for the match.

Lorcan chose Humberto Carrillo as his latest partner, while Gulak picked Carrillo's cousin Garza. Gulak tweeted: "the best lessons in life are learned through pain. i wonder how my student humberto will fare with family standing across the ring from him? my third pick for our #captainschallenge match this week on #205live is @angelgarzawwe"

Jack Gallagher, Akira Tozawa, and Carrillo are set for Lorcan's team. Ariya Daivari, Mike Kanellis, and Garza are teaming with Gulak. One partner for each team is still to be announced.

Gulak retained his Cruiserweight Championship against Lorcan on the SummerSlam pre-show and last week's 205 Live.

Garza signing with WWE was officially announced this April. He made his televised debut for the company in NXT's Breakout Tournament. Jordan Myles defeated Garza in the semifinals and went on to win the tournament.

Tuesday's SmackDown and 205 Live are taking place at the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
