Kickin' Cousins

Angel Garza and Humberto Carillo aren't just wrestlers from Mexico who have signed with WWE, they also happen to be cousins. According to Wikipedia, Humberto Carillo is the second cousin of Angel Garza (whose real name is Humberto Garza Solano), the nephew of (the late) Hector Garza, the grandson of Humberto Garza, the son of Humberto Garza, Jr., the grandnephew of Mario Segura, the second cousin of Mascara Pupura, the second cousin of El Ninja, Jr., and the cousin of El Sultan (how's that for a wrestling dynasty?). The cousins have wrestled each other on WWE 205 before; you can read Angel Garza's take on it here. There's also a link to a video of their match in the article. You can count on seeing more of these cousins in 2020.

Model Behavior

This is Lewis Howley's first feature on Beefcakes of Wrestling, although he's a ten-year veteran of the squared circle. Born in Essex, England, Howley stands 6'1" tall (185 cm) and weighs 171 lbs. (78 kg.). Because he's lean and good-looking, Howley has another job, that of a model. Many of his matches on YouTube are from his "Playboy" Lewis Howley days (here's one) while some of the more recent ones are of him and his "Pretty Deadly" tag team partner Sam Stoker: Pretty Deadly vs The NIC.

Beefcakes of Lucha: Emperador Azteca (Part 2)

I found a little information about last week's featured Beefcake of Lucha, Emperador Azteca. 29-year-old Azteca (real name not provided) was born in Guadalajara, Jalisco and made his in-ring debut in 2009. He weighs 189 lbs (90 kg) and stands 5'8" (177 cm). Watch him in this four-way match uploaded to YouTube last October.
