Santos Escobar Reveals Ulterior Motive Behind Helping Rey Mysterio



Speaking on WWE Die Woche, former NXT/WWE Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar detailed on why he has been helping out Rey Mysterio in his feud with his son, Dominik.

Disclosing his ulterior motive, Escobar claimed that he wants to replace Rey Mysterio in his quest to become the face of lucha libre in WWE. However, that will only be possible if he can dethrone Rey from his current standing when the former WWE Champion is not distracted by family issues. He said,

“He’s got problems right now. He’s in a very tough situation because he’s not getting the respect he deserves at home. That affects your life outside of your house. I think the more I want to become the leading lucha libre superstar in the world, the more I want him to be 100% so that I can contend for that. At the moment, I can’t because he’s distracted. I think he needs to solve this somehow. The way I see it, he doesn’t, his career is over. That’s it. He won’t be able to perform the way we want him to perform, the way I need him to perform so that I can challenge him for the lucha libre empire. I want him at this best. If he needs me for that, I’ll help him.”

Being a third-generation wrestler himself, Escobar drew parallels between himself and Mysterio:

“I’ve had my own issues with my dad in the past, so I know. I can relate to what he’s going through. I’m a dad myself, I have my son, so I understand where he’s coming from.”
