The March 1st episode of Friday Night Smackdown was total blast. With a lot of implications on the WrestleMania storylines, the show turned out to be one of the best episodes of the blue brand ever streamed. While The Rock’s segment to kick-off the show was stunning, intense action unfolded during the Street Fight between Carlito and Santos Escobar. 

As one would expect, Humberto Carillo and Angel Garza interfered during the match followed by Joaquin Wilde and Cruz Del Toro taking them down. However, just when Escobar’s faction tried to make it 3-on-1 assault on Carlito, Rey Mysterio returned to surprise everyone. 

Using his crutches to fool everyone, Mysterio took everyone down and helped the veteran pick a win over Escobar. While the latter has vowed to destroy the Master of 619 once again after his return from injury, Mysterio has finally broken silence upon his return. 

Kayla Braxton interviewed LWO backstage after Smackdown went off air where Rey Mysterio sent a massive warning to his former friend, Santos Escobar. 


“This is a solid team. This is family, familia. And there was no way I was gonna leave Carlito alone today. Even though family is always here and present, this is only the beginning to what’s to come for Santos Escobar. I can’t stand this.”

With WrestleMania 40 on the horizon, Rey Mysterio vs Santos Escobar taking place at the event seems to be the current plan. However, if Escobar is able to get Dominik Mysterio on his side to take his father down, Carlito might team up with the veteran to feature a tag team match at the Grandest Stage of them All.
