Angel Garza wins NXT Cruiserweight title, gets engaged

Angel Garza is the new NXT Cruiserweight champion and is also engaged following WWE NXT Wednesday night.

The 27-year-old Garza submitted Lio Rush to win the title in a fantastic match that opened up the show. It's the first taste of NXT gold for Garza who signed with WWE this spring.

Following the match and while NXT was in commercial, Garza did a babyface promo and brought his girlfriend into the ring. He pulled out the ring and asked her in Spanish to marry him. They aired the proposal when they came back from break.

Garza is the first Mexican-born Cruiserweight champion, a title revived in 2016 by WWE and rebranded as an NXT belt that can also be defended on 205 Live. Rush won the title in early-October and held the title for 63 days.
