NXT Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar may have taken WWE by storm since his arrival, but the man formerly known as El Hijo del Fantasma has revealed that he’s yet to meet with Vince McMahon, calling it a “goal” and saying there are things they have to discuss.
Speaking with Sports Illustrated, the leader of Legado Del Fantasma was asked about his “main goal” in WWE. He promised a “peculiar answer” and certainly delivered.
“I will give you a peculiar answer. There is one thing I haven’t been able to do, and that is meet Vince McMahon. I’m committed to this industry, and that is a lifetime commitment. I was born and raised to do this. I think Vince McMahon is a genius, and I want to meet him. That, to me, is an immediate goal. He will either like me or hate me, but I will discuss my background with him and what I bring to the table. I need to discuss that with Vince McMahon, and that is one of my most immediate goals.”
Escobar would speak to that goal again when he discussed his “background” again, and aiming to change the view of lucha libre.
“I want to change the view of the American audience to lucha libre. I won’t be the best high-flyer, but I will deliver the best high-flying maneuver. I won’t be the best promo, but I will be the best Mexican individual cutting a promo on your screen. That’s my aim.”
Escobar also recently disclosed that Rey Mysterio sent him his Halloween Havoc attire.
