Santos Escobar Comments On Zelina Vega Joining Legado Del Fantasma
Santos Escobar on Zelina Vega joining Legado Del Fantasma
A couple of months after Santos Escobar's banishment from NXT, Legado Del Fantasma resurfaced on WWE TV, with the faction making its main roster debut on the October 7 edition of Friday Night SmackDown.
The group had a new member for their debut, though, with Zelina Vega replacing Elektra Lopez in Legado Del Fantasma, reportedly because of WWE's plans to have B-Fab face the female in the stable as part of the Hit Row-Legado feud.
Santos Escobar commented on Vega's addition while speaking to El Brunch de WWE, admitting it "favours" Legado Del Fantasma.
"All great family businesses grow and you have to grow with acquisitions, with joining other companies and other corporations to build empires. Zelina Vega is a superstar that knows the roads of Raw, SmackDown & WrestleMania. This union favours her and it favours us. Together, like all great companies, we will go far. As long as our interests are aligned, there will not be anyone that can stop us," Escobar began.
"You gave me a great picture. Santos Escobar, Zelina, Joaquin (Wilde) & Cruz (Del Toro). A group that I feel is unstoppable, very powerful, and dominant, and that the world tends to take for granted. They say 'Meh, they are too small or too heavy', but we are warriors and we do not care to die on the line. Others do not have that. Anyone that underestimates us is committing a grave mistake because we are here with an unstoppable hunger. I reiterate, we have the backing of a lot of people that come from the bottom, that are oppressed, and that is adjusted to hearing people say 'Not you'. We are not that small and we know how to talk, which is why they have me. I know how to express myself in the ring and out of the ring," he continued.
"All of the weaknesses that our minority group may have, which I believe is now a majority, are the strengths we will present, including our legacy and our heritage. That is what makes the group, including myself in particular."
