• RAW Wrestler Shows Off Injury, Takes A Shot At Ronda Rousey
Former NXT Cruiserweight Champion Angel Garza is one of the most talked about wrestlers on RAW right now. He’s a part of a faction led by Zelina Vega.
Garza faced WWE Champion Drew McIntyre in the main event of this week’s RAW. It looks like he suffered a little scratch on his forehead due to the Claymore kick.
Below is what Garza tweeted about it:
“For those fans who keep thinking that wrestling is fake 🤫 shut your mouth! When you have passion and love for this sport, you give your life in the ring 🤙. Enjoy THIS beautiful sport! 🔥”

In his tweet, he emphasized on the fact that pro wrestling is a sport, and it is not fake.
Perhaps, this was done on purpose due to the Ronda Rousey controversy that rose a couple of weeks ago.
