Writing a different article it gave me an idea of how easy it would be to not only bring Andrade back to programming but to give programming a breath of fresh air. One of the many reasons that fans have gotten bored with WWE programming is that there is normally very little fresh feuds or talent in new positions of the card. Stepping back for a minute think about this Angel Garza was the cause for Andrade's disappearance from programming with him leaving Andrade to be beaten down by The Fiend. Garza has been sputtering for the last few months without any direction and his potential to do more really falling on deaf ears. I've always said that WWE could make such better use of the three hour time slot then they do and here's how.
Starting point is that same show when Andrade gets taken out and written off by The Fiend, Garza should take credit for getting rid of his former allies. While that happens his confidence starts rise with wins over local stars and him out to prove he never needed Zelina or Andrade to be a star. Separate from this Ricochet starts getting wins, but also making clear his dissatisfaction with Garza taking credit for injuring Andrade. Ricochet starts getting wins as well and then they finally intersect with one another setting up few weeks of a feud. Ricochet gets a win first knocking Garza off his perch only to have this expose an aggressive side to Angel Garza that we hadn't seen yet. A rematch is set for two weeks before Survivor Series and the two have the best match they've had on the main roster, because they're given time to have a match and tell the story that the segments opened up.
Garza's aggression almost costs him, but he gets one over in tainted fashion on Ricochet, and his performance is enough to get the attention of Raw "Team Captain" AJ Styles. Styles awards a spot on Team Raw to Angel Garza much to the contesting of Keith Lee who points out how Garza defeated Ricochet. To ease tension Keith Lee and Angel Garza have a match on the go home episode of Raw before Survivor Series which Lee wins, because Garza couldn't stop paying attention to Ricochet on commentary. This leads to Styles warning Garza to keep his eyes on the prize and stay focused at Survivor Series to not make a fool out of AJ for picking Garza to join the team.
Survivor Series happens without changing much other then adding Angel Garza to Team Raw in favor of Sheamus who I think would be better served feuding with McIntyre at this time instead of being directionless with Keith Lee. Garza's aggressive again appears like from nowhere and he is the reason that both Otis and Keith Lee get eliminated from the match. That's right! Garza would be responsible for eliminating his own partner from the match and eliminating Otis a fan favorite let the heat and hatred fester. The survivors for Team Raw read AJ Styles, Angel Garza, and Riddle only three of them instead of all five like it was in real life. Later in show Styles officially provides his endorsement to Angel Garza after his performance in the survivor series match earlier in the night and Styles says he made the right choice.
Clearly this story will continue in Part 2, but the reason we won't just jump right into a feud between Angel Garza and Andrade is simple. Ask yourself when Garza and Andrade broke up who was more established who mattered more. Another question to ask is who would've gotten the attention from the crowd and who would've needed time to grow into his role as a roster member who mattered. This way when Andrade does return his feud with Garza will not be a throw away feud and will be a feud people actually want to see happen.
