Santos Escobar Wants WWE To Hold A PPV In Mexico

Could Mexico be WWE's next international PPV destination?

WWE star Santos Escobar wants the company to host a premium live event in Mexico. 

The LWO member believes his home country is ready for one, following WWE's forays to Puerto Rico for Backlash and Cardiff for Clash at the Castle. 

Speaking with the Getting Over podcast (recorded prior to Backlash), the former NXT Cruiserweight Champion said: 

"Trust me, this weekend means a lot. Not just to me, but to any other Latino Americans out there. Of course, Puerto Rico is gonna be amazing, but what's the next step? Mexico City? The Aztec Stadium, over 110,000 people there for a premium live event maybe, for a WrestleMania maybe? The superstars are ready for it, we're ready for it, Mexico is ready for it, Latin America is ready for it. Yes, every time I can, I mention it to who ever wants to listen. The stage is there, it's set. We're ready to go, take over the world".

Though WWE have extensively toured south of the border over the years, they have yet to host a PLE there. 

WWE's next PLE - Night of Champions - will emanate from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on May 27.
