Santos Escobar always had a bright future ahead of him, as he already proved his worth in NXT as part of Legado Del Fantasma. The same could be seen after getting called up to the main roster, where he is now part of the newly re-introduced LWO faction. He is set to compete in the Money In The Bank ladder match and it appears he has a goal in mind for his win.

WWE re-introduced the LWO stable right before WrestleMania 39 and they have been carrying on the legacy of Eddie Guerrero ever since. Fans were initially surprised to see Legado Del Fantasma turning babyface but they have now warned up to the stable.

As seen on this week’s episode of Friday Night Smackdown, Santos Escobar squared off against Mustafa Ali in a Money In The Bank qualifier match. After a hard-fought bout, it was Santos Escobar who picked up the win.

Following his major win, Santos Escobar got acquainted with some ladders in a backstage area, where he was also interviewed. Escobar made it clear that he promises to make all Latinos proud by winning the Money In The Bank ladder match.


“When I do that [win the briefcase], all my Latinos out there will be proud and happy. Because LWO’s Santos Escobar is gonna meet his destiny [when] I cash in that contract and become El Campeon.”

Santos Escobar will be squaring off against LA Knight, Shinsuke Nakamura, Butch, Ricochet, and either Matt Riddle or Damian Priest in the Money In The Bank ladder match next month. We will have to wait and see whether Escobar will be able to win the match and make Latinos proud.
