WWE’s United States Champion, Austin Theory, has cast a wary eye on Santos Escobar, labeling him as a potent force to be reckoned with.
Escobar’s path to the United States Championship Invitational tournament finals was marked by an intense clash against his own role model and leader of the LWO (Latino World Order), Rey Mysterio. However, this encounter took an unexpected turn when a suicide dive by Escobar caused Mysterio’s head to collide with the floor, resulting in a legitimate injury.
Mysterio’s injury proved substantial enough to halt the match, subsequently crowning Escobar as the new number-one contender for Austin Theory’s United States Championship.
In an illuminating conversation with The Babyfaces Podcast, Austin Theory delved into his upcoming confrontation with Escobar. Theory did not mince words, referring to Escobar as “dangerous” due to the incident that led to his role model’s injury. This strategic move by Theory only deepens the intrigue surrounding their impending match.

“Well, you know, I thought I had Santos figured out, but, man, he just, you know, did you see what he did to his own family, Rey Mysterio? I mean, that just blows my mind. You know, he injures his own role model, that he says he cares about so much. It’s a dangerous man. But, you know, good-guy Theory, he’s gonna come in and wipe the mat clean with this guy. So, don’t worry. I’m here to save the world again.”
