Although it might have come as a surprise for some fans that Legado Del Fantasma was brought into the picture, it was the plan for a while. After all, Ringside News exclusively reported in January that WWE locked in the WrestleMania card at that time, and they’ve only needed to make a couple slight alterations to it since then.
Sean Sapp reported behind Fightful’s paywall that WWE had those plans for Legado Del Fantasma locked in for WrestleMania “months” in advance. So, everything went according to plan for the faction.
The plans for Legado Del Fantasma to be involved with WrestleMania were set up months ago, we’re told.
