There is already plenty of evidence available without this find to be able to say the builders of Egyptian and Aztec pyramids are the same people.
Both have huge pyramids, aligned to the cardinal points
Both have structures built with megalithic stones and extremely fine joints
Both exhibit intriguing bumps on many unfinished stone blocks
Both employed a unique style of construction using "L" shaped corners
Both use the same style of metal clamps to hold the huge stones in place
And go research the last point on the metal clamps. That's not a coincidence Druscilla.
So much stuff, what's that statement about knowing you know nothing?

When Christopher Columbus (We know he was not the first and neither was Amerigo Vespuci) first encountered the south American tribe whom lived on what he called Hispaniola he noted that they were in possession of sea going vessels that had masts and were about the same size as his ships (so really small and scary on the Atlantic),. We tend to dismiss the possibility that just maybe the south American's were the ones visiting the Africa and Europe and not the other way around.
The claim that Egyptian find's had been made in the grand canyon has never been quantified and if real may have been a miss-identification of some native American relic's but to my knowledge none ever showed up for inspection and like so many claim's it has grown over time but that does not mean that a civilisation that lasted for thousand's of years never explored as I am sure they did, but did they make it to America?.
And if they did then did they ever make it back, the Egyptians were primarily river sailors and the Mediterranean though it can be really rough in bad weather is a different scale of difficult to the Atlantic, As far as the Pyramid connection go's, well there is no proof of any connection and while the Egyptian pyramids still hold mystery there is little or non in the south American one's though some were impressive feats of engineering the Andean irrigation canals and stone architecture is far more impressive.
Pyramids are a logical structure as they may evolve as Cairns were like a kid putting one block atop another they learned they could make something really big and impressive, gothic arches are light years ahead but would never stand the test of time so well.

This month, researchers from the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) are combing the eastern Mexican coast for remnants of the Maya civilization, which once boasted a rich and sophisticated seafaring tradition. The current expedition focuses on the ancient port city of Vista Alegre, located where the Caribbean meets the Gulf of Mexico at the northeastern tip of the Yucatan Peninsula. The remote island site is thought to have been an important harbor and maritime trade stronghold for intermittent periods of time between 800 B.C. and the mid-15th century.
