According to a new report a prominent NXT faction are heading to SmackDown and could debut as soon as October 7th.
After Santos Escobar lost to Tony D’Angelo at NXT Heatwave, and in the process was banished from the brand many fans have been waiting for the star and his faction Legado Del Fantasma to arrive on the main roster.
This feeling was bolstered by reports suggesting that the group would be joining Solo Siko, Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne on SmackDown. However, Legado Del Fantasma have remained somewhat missing in action.
Although according to a new report from Mike Johnson of PWInsider, that could be about to change very soon. The report notes that the group make up of Santos Escobar, Joaquin Wilde, Electra Lopez and Raul Mendoz are indeed heading to the blue brand, and could debut as soon as October 7th.
The report adds that there have been creative pitches made for the group which would see them debut imminently.
Legado Del Fantasma was formed back in June 2020 when Santos Escobar became Interim Cruiserweight Champion with the help of two masked intruders who were revealed to be Joaquin Wilde and Raul Mendoza. (Cruz Del Toro) Elektra Lopez joined the group a little over a year later.
It has already been announced that the October 7th season premiere edition of SmackDown will feature a huge Clash At The Castle rematch. Gunther will again be putting his Intercontinental Title on the line against Sheamus, just 24-hours before the Brawling Brutes and Imperium do battle at Extreme Rules.
