​Backstage News – WWE Officials Reportedly Have Very High Hopes For “La Sombra” – Details


Source: The Wrestling Observer Newsletter

WWE’s recent acquisition of CMLL and NJPW star La Sombra is a move that could bring them the top Latino star they’ve been wanting for a long time. According to sources, those within WWE believe that La Sombra, who is now training at the Performance Center, has the potential to be a big crossover star for the company.


Sources in the company note that Sombra is known to be very professional and takes a lot of pride in his work, noting that he’s unlikely to rub people the wrong way backstage. His work in the ring has had the company’s eye on him for a while now and the fact that he speaks English well is a major note in his favor.

WWE has been looking for a big Latino star since Rey Mysterio departed and while Alberto Del Rio’s return helps them in that capacity, it never hurts to double up.
