WWE SmackDown star and a former WWE NXT Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar who is the leader of the Legado Del Fantasma stable recently talked about Queen’s Crown tournament winner Zelina Vega joining their faction and replacing Elektra Lopez.
Legado Del Fantasma was a dominant mid card faction from the NXT brand of WWE which was the development territory of the promotion. The fraction made their debut back in mid 2020, during the time of the covid 19 pandemic era. The stable mostly focused on mid card feuds even though their leader had some NXT title opportunities.
Santos Escobar Reflects On Zelina Vega Joining Legado Del Fantasma
One of their Prime members of the stable was Elektra Lopez and she was the only female member of the stable. Before joining the stable, Lopez work mostly as a jobber in the NXT. She was first seen jobbing to Franky Monet aka Taya Valkyrie. After joining Legado Del Fantasma, she got better chances and she earned a fan base for herself as well.
Legado Del Fantasma recently made their main roster debut on Friday Night Smackdown, but Lopez who was one of their key members, was missing from the faction. Instead she was replaced by former Queen’s Crown tournament winner Zelina Vega. A lot of fans like to the move, but some fans still prefer Lopez. It is possible that we might get to see a feud between the faction and Lopez in the near future.
Santos Escobar who is the leader of the Legado Del Fantasma stable recently spoke to WWE Español’s show “El Brunch” where he talked about Queen’s Crown tournament winner Zelina Vega joining their faction and replacing Elektra Lopez. He said;
“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 favors her and it favors 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.
“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. 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.”
