On last week’s show of WWE SmackDown, Rey Mysterio won gold after an unexpected turn of events with Santos Escobar. Some people thought that the latter would turn heel against the LWO, but there’s also an idea that the Hall of Famer will do it and work with an NXT star to do it.
Austin Theory was going to take on Santos Escobar for the United States Championship. After the challenger was hit twice by the champion, it was decided that he or she could no longer fight. So, Rey Mysterio stepped in and finally won the title at WWE SmackDown. This turn of events could make the 39-year-old change his mind and turn against LWO. Still, it’s possible that the warrior will do this with Elektra Lopez by his side.
After Escobar lost to Santos in their last match, the Stamford-based company could show that Rey Mysterio was behind the attacks on Escobar. Elektra could be involved because in the developing brand, she was linked to Legado Del Fantasma. Zelina Vega took her place when the group moved to the main squad, and she went on to become the LWO.
On the August 24, 2021, show of NXT, Elektra became a member of Legado Del Fantasma. She worked with the others to beat Hit Row. She and Lola Vice are a duo in the developing brand right now.

What could happen in WWE SmackDown if Elektra Lopez and Rey Mysterio work together?
Mysterio could convince Elektra to join him on the blue brand after the group replaced her. He could do this out of jealousy and spite. A reported angle could help this idea, which is interesting.
There were rumors before that LWO might have been planned to be split in two. It would be like nWO Hollywood vs. nWO Wolfpac. But it would be Lucha World Order vs. Latino World Order. Lucha World Order is made up of fighters who wear masks.
The present LWO could choose between Escobar and Mysterio, and both men could start recruiting more people to their side to get the upper hand.
How did Zelina Vega hint on WWE SmackDown that she might fight Elektra Lopez in the future?
Lopez was taken off the main roster for no official reason, and WWE hasn’t even acknowledged her past alliance with the group. But it’s possible that they’re keeping it for a future story.
Zelina said that she didn’t know why the move happened either, but that it was done to shake things up since Lopez was now working with a different partner in NXT. Later, the star of SmackDown hinted that Elektra could get back at her for taking her spot.
