Angel Medina (born 1970) is an American police officer and former professional wrestler of Puerto Rican extraction. He is perhaps best known for his appearances with Extreme Championship Wrestling in the late 1990s and early 2000s under the ring name Angel and Spanish Angel.
At an early age, Angel relocated from New York to Puerto Rico, where he became interested in professional wrestling. At the age of 17, Angel began training as a wrestler under Johnny Rodz.
In the course of his career, Angel wrestled in Mexico and Japan.
In 1999, Angel worked with the now defunct LIWF on the JYD memorial show along with Kid USA, Big Vito LaGrasso and Lucifer Billy Alaimo. In the same year he joined Extreme Championship Wrestling. Wrestling under the ring name Angel, Angel formed a stable known as "Da Baldies" (apparently based on a real NY skinhead gang) with Vito LoGrasso, Tony DeVito, Vic Grimes and Redd Dogg. The Baldies feuded with New Jack throughout late 1999 and early 2000 over who was the "King of the Streets". This feud saw Angel defeat New Jack at the Guilty As Charged 2000 pay per view, proclaiming himself the King of the Streets, until he and New Jack faced off again in late 2000, with Jack winning, and 'reclaiming' the title. Throughout the summer of 2000, Medina and DeVito feuded with Chris Chetti and Nova, and also had a blood feud with Balls Mahoney and Chilly Willy.
After ECW declared bankruptcy in April 2001, Angel began wrestling for the Puerto Rican International Wrestling Association as "NY Rican Baldie" or "The New Yorican Baldie". Between July and September 2001, he won the IWA Hardcore Championship on seven occasions, trading the title with wrestlers such as Glamour Boy Shane and fellow ECW alumni Super Crazy and Tommy Dreamer.
Upon semi-retiring in the early 2000s, Angel became a police officer in Wichita, Kansas. He could be seen in the Kansas-based independent promotions Midwest Wrestling Alliance and Metro Pro Wrestling. He could also be heard on his commentaries with Mark 13 of Empire Extreme Magazine and Renn on http://www.WrestleOutLoud.com on "THE KINGPIN & 13 SHOW".
Angel still wrestles today on the independent scene. On March 2, 2013, Angel won the Hardcore Roadtrip Championship in London, Ontario.
