Legado Del Fantasma

Santos Escobar On Wilde & Mendoza In 2021 Dusty Classic, Lucha Libre In NXT & More

NXT Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar recently spoke with Sportskeeda to promote tonight’s NXT On USA show where he defends his title against Curt Stallion.

During the discussion, Escobar spoke at length about Legado Del Fantasma and the goal of Joaquin Wilde and Raul Mendoza to win the Dusty Rhodes Tag-Team Classic Tournament and capture the NXT Tag-Team Titles.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On working with Legado Del Fantasma stablemates Joaquin Wilde and Raul Mendoza: “It’s been a journey, and I think that’s the most important thing that I can bring to the WWE table and the NXT table is Lucha Libre. My roots, my tradition, my culture, my background. And I found in Raul and Joaquin, two brothers. They love and respect Lucha Libre, and I think that’s the most important thing that we can offer to the roster because we are true ambassadors of Mexican Lucha Libre. I think we have found our cohesive unit in the ring because we always show what Lucha Libre is all about.”

On Wilde and Mendoza in the Dusty Rhodes Tag-Team Classic Tournament quarterfinals tonight on NXT On USA and their goal to capture the NXT Tag-Team Titles: “I think it’s very important for Joaquin and Raul to win the Dusty Classic, and then to win the NXT Tag Team Championships. Because I think that completes the first part of our journey because I call myself the leader of leaders, and I think of them as leaders as well. I think the first and most important thing for them is to show the world what kind of leaders they are. And the way of doing it, just by winning the Dusty Classic and then, of course, becoming the NXT Tag Team Champions.”
