A prominent WWE RAW star is a big fan of Santos Escobar.
According to former NXT North American Champion and current The Judgment Day member, Damian Priest, ‘The Archer of Infamy’ would welcome former NXT Cruiserweight Champion, Santos Escobar into he, Finn Balor, and Rhea Ripley’s dominant faction.
When speaking with Cultaholic, Priest explains how Escobar would ‘fit right in’ with The Judgment Day:
“Yeah, definitely. Look, you’ve got Santos Escobar over there that I’m a big fan of, and I think he would fit right in with Judgment Day. But yeah, there are definitely talents out there that are more than capable and fit the vibe of Judgement Day. So, yeah. Our doors are open. You know, it’s just it’s one of those situations that it has to make sense. We all have to agree on it the right person, right time, right place. So there’s always a chance.”
When it comes to The Judgment Day, Priest notes how newly appointed WWE Chief Content Officer and Head of Creative, Triple H is a big fan of the group:
“It’s one of those things that he could be a fan and everything, but we got to do our part. We have to deliver and I think right now we’re firing on all cylinders. I think things are going really well. We’re at the top of our game, and, you know, we’re getting opportunities, but we’re smashing them. Obviously, it helps to work with guys like Rey and Edge. So, yeah, things are good. But again, it has to go with us doing our part. Triple H, obviously, is a hell of a leader, a crazy vision. He’s so good at this business. But we have to do our part and so far, so good.”
While not yet officially called up to the main roster, Escobar lost a ‘Loser Leaves NXT Match’ at NXT Heatwave, last month and was shown driving out of the WWE Performance Center parking lot before he stopped to pick up his Legado del Fantasma stablemates, Raul Mendoza, Cruz del Toro, and Elektra Lopez.
