WWE (2018–present)[edit]

NXT and 205 Live (2018-2019)[edit]

On August 23, 2018, Humberto Carrillo started competing for the WWE and signed his official contract on October 18, 2018, along with other recruits.[4] Prior to that, Carrillo had made an appearance on the September 19 edition of NXT against Jaxson Ryker in a losing effort.[5]

On the December 5 edition of NXT, Carrillo would make his televised return when he teamed with Raul Mendoza in a losing effort against Steve Cutler and Wesley Blake of The Forgotten Sons.[6] On the January 16, 2019 edition of NXT, Carrillo competed against Johnny Gargano in a losing effort.[7]

On the January 15, 2019 edition of 205 Live, Carrillo made his main roster debut when he answered the WWE Cruiserweight Champion Buddy Murphy's open challenge in a losing effort. Despite this, General Manager Drake Maverick revealed after the show that Carrillo has joined the 205 Live Roster and will compete at the WWE Worlds Collide Tournament at the Royal Rumble Axxess.[8] At the event, he defeated Zack Gibson in the first round before losing to Velveteen Dream in the quarterfinals. The following week, Carrillo scored his first win on the brand defeating Gran Metalik. On February 5, 2019, Carrillo competed in a fatal four-way elimination match to determine who would challenge Buddy Murphy for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship at Elimination Chamber, which Carrillo lost. On August 27, 2019, Carrillo defeated Oney Lorcan to earn a title shot against Drew Gulak for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship at Clash of Champions.[9] At Clash of Champions, he was defeated by Gulak, in a triple threat match also involving Lince Dorado.

Main roster (2019-present)[edit]

In October 2019, it was announced that as part of the 2019 draft, Carrillo was drafted to Raw, where he received a push, including a tag team match with former MMA fighter Cain Velasquez in his home country, Mexico.[10] Carrillo made his debut on the October 21 episode, losing to WWE Universal Champion Seth Rollins and had two singles matches against the WWE United States Champion AJ Styles on Raw and Crown Jewel. Carrillo would get his first win on the main roster, teaming with Ricochet and Randy Orton to defeat The O.C. (A.J. Styles, Karl Anderson, and Luke Gallows) by pinning Styles. This would earn Carrillo a title shot against Styles but he was attacked by The O.C. before the match.[11] On the December 16 episode of Raw, Carrillo competed in a #1 Contender's Gauntlet match for the United States Championship but was defeated by Andrade after he was unable to continue following a DDT on the concrete floor which would sideline him for several weeks. He would return on the January 20, 2020 episode of Raw saving Rey Mysterio from an attack by Andrade thus setting up a match between Carrillo and Andrade for the United States Championship at the Royal Rumble.[12] However, Andrade was able to retain, only for the following night on Raw, when Zelina interfered and got Andrade disqualified in another match with Humberto, Humberto snapped in a rage, and gave Andrade a dose of his own medicine with a Hammerlock DDT onto the exposed concrete, resulting in Andrade being (kayfabe) written off due to injury.[13]

Following this, Humberto would begin a feud with his real-life cousin Angel Garza who Zelina introduced as her newest protege and proceeded to attack him on the February 3, 2020 episode of Raw. This set up a match between the two at WWE Super ShowDown, where Humberto was defeated by Garza. On the March 2, 2020 episode of Raw, Humberto teamed with Mysterio to defeat Andrade and Garza where he pinned Andrade, earning himself a United States Championship match at Elimination Chamber. At the event, Humberto was unsuccessful in capturing the United States Championship from Andrade.[14] On the May 4 episode of Raw, Carrillo participated in a last chance gauntlet match to determine the final competitor in the Money in the Bank ladder match where he entered fifth, defeating Bobby Lashley by disqualification, Angel Garza, and Austin Theory but lost to the returning AJ Styles.

He then began a feud with Seth Rollins after he injured his idol and friend Rey Mysterio challenging his disciple Murphy to a match on the May 18 episode of Raw where he lost. On the May 25 episode of Raw, Carrillo teamed with Aleister Black where they were defeated by Murphy and Austin Theory after Theory pinned Carrillo. The following week, Carrillo accompanied Black in his match against Rollins where Black was victorious. After the match, Black and Carrillo were attacked by Rollins, Murphy and Theory and both received a Curb Stomp. On June 29 episode of Raw, Carillo teamed with Aleister Black where they were defeated by Buddy Murphy and Seth Rollins. After the match, Rollins and Murphy attacked Carillo and Black, which ended with Carillo (with a Rey Mysterio mask on) getting Curb stomped by Rollins on the steel steps. On the July 25 episode of Raw, Carillo returned and faced Murphy where he was defeated.[15]
