In a WWE SmackDown Exclusive, Santos Escobar was asked about his loss, as Byron Saxton noted that it seemed like his plan was not fully executed due to Rey Mysterio's return.

“There was no plan, Byron. It was destiny. Tonight was the final chapter in the book. I said it, and I always deliver. You know it, and they know it. Tonight was the final chapter in this book. LWO was to be eradicated, eliminated. I gave Rey a clean way out of this industry, like a legend, with his head held up high. WWE Hall of Famer. This is my time. It was supposed to be my moment, and he took it away. Now tonight, with the so-called surprise return, it’s fair game. I will end Rey Mysterio, and this time, there’s not gonna be a surprise comeback. It will be the end of Rey Mysterio and his legacy. The only legacy that’s gonna matter is familia [Legado del Fantasma]," Escobar said.
