Legado Del Fantasma debuts on SmackDown, Zelina Vega returns

The Legado Del Fantasma trio consisting of Santos Escobar, Joaquin Wilde, and Cruz Del Toro made their SmackDown debut on Friday night’s show. They attacked Hit Row.

Legado Del Fantasma was formed in the summer of 2020 on NXT, with Escobar, Wilde, and Del Toro. Elektra Lopez was added to the group in August of last year. However, she will not be part of the group going forward and has been replaced by the returning Zelina Vega, who was out of action for six-months due to requiring surgery for an injury. She last wrested on the April 11 episode of Raw.

On the August 16 Heatwave episode of NXT, Escobar lost a match to Tony D’Angelo. The stipulation was that Escobar would leave NXT if he lost to D’Angelo. The following week, Escobar invited the rest of the group to leave with him, telling them he was not going to leave any of them behind.
