New WWE Performance Center signings announced

WWE announced Thursday that Jore Bolly also known as King Cuemo formally from Lucha Underground, and Hijo de la Fantasma best known for his time in Impact Wrestling have officially signed with WWE and will be reporting to the Performance Center. 

Fantasma started his wrestling career in 2000 and prior to his time in Impact Wrestling from 2017 to 2018, he also wrestled for Lucha Libra AAA from 2013 to 2019 and Lucha Underground from 2014 to 2019.

He lost his mask to LA Park at last year’s TripleMania and then revealed his real name following the match. 

In addition, WWE also announced they have signed Edgar Lopez, a 6’4” 250 pound former football player for the Monterrey Institute of Technology’s Borregos Salvajes squad that WWE talent scouts discovered last year during a try-out in Santiago, Chile.  

You can read the full announcement from WWE below:

Second-generation luchador Jorge Bolly — better known to ring fans by the aliases El Hijo del Fantasma and King Cuerno — has arrived at the WWE Performance Center.

The 198-pounder from Mexico City boasts two decades of in-ring experience.  A veteran of Mexico’s CMLL and AAA promotions, Bolly has held singles and trios titles during his career, and he won AAA’s Antonio Peña Cup in 2017. The son of legendary luchador El Fantasma, Bolly is proficient in classic lucha libre techniques, combining speed and aerial maneuvers, including arguably sports-entertainment’s most daring tope suicida.

Bolly isn’t the only new signee to be announced. Also joining the WWE Performance Center is Edgar Lopez, also of Mexico. Standing 6-foot-4 and weighing 250 pounds, Lopez played football on the Monterrey Institute of Technology’s Borregos Salvajes squad, where he served as the offensive captain. WWE talent scouts discovered Lopez during last December’s tryout in Santiago, Chile.

Last month, the WWE Performance Center welcomed nine new signees, including EVOLVE Champion Austin Theory and former Mae Young Classic competitor Santana Garrett.
