Potential update on Santos Escobar’s new WWE team mates
On the November 10, 2023 episode of SmackDown, Santos Escobar turned on Rey Mysterio and Carlito following blame thrown on him for helping Logan Paul to use brass knuckles on Rey Mysterio to strip the United States Championship from his waist. Escobar crushed Rey Mysterio’s knee, which resulted in Rey having a knee surgery. Rey announced about his surgery and warned Escobar, to which Escobar asked him not to come back.
Last week on SmackDown, Escobar explained his actions and stated that Dominik Mysterio was right and the idea of meeting and joining Rey was the baddest decision he ever took. He doesn’t want to see Rey in the wrestling ring again and hopes his surgery didn’t go well causing infection and potentially amputating his leg.
Zelina Vega came to stop him but he disrespected her, as she wasn’t able to resist she slapped Escobar and left crying. Escobar’s Legado Del Fantasma stablemates Joaquín Wilde & Cruz Del Toro came to talk to Escobar, but Escobar attacked them ending his journey with LWO.
At this stage a backstage report reveals that Santos Escobar could be joining forces with two new team mates in the upcoming weeks.
Santos Escobar & Los Lotharios
According to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio’s reports, there have been talks that Angel Garza and Humberto Carrillo of Los Lotharios will be joining Escobar and face LWO.
“Los Lotharios, one of the ideas was for them to join Santos. And actually, originally, before the Rey-Santos thing, there was talk of them joining with Rey. That’s definitely been in conversations,”
According to Pro Wrestling Finesse, Humberto Carrillo & Angel Garza’s uncle Hector Garza, who was one of the founding members of original LWO with Eddie Guerrero and Damien in 1998 at World Championship Wrestling (WCW). Santos Escobar has previously teamed up with Hector during his run in CMLL. Thus, Escobar possibly joining hands with his former teammate’s nephew is more likely possible.
Garza and Carrillo are closely related to the LWO, but were not considered as members of the new LWO. This could make Garza and Carrillo join forces with Escobar and go on a feud with Rey Mysterio and LWO.
Santos Escobar will be facing Carlito at WWE Survivor Series 2023, which might be the right time for Los Lotharios to join forces with Escobar.
