Santos Escobar has cordially requested to share the ring with Sean Waltman.
The Legado Del Fantasma leader defeated Jordan Devlin in a Ladder Match at NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver to become the Undisputed NXT Cruiserweight Champion. After the bout, Sean Waltman sent out a congratulatory Tweet. Escobar responded, calling Waltman a legend and said, "please allow me to share the squared circle with you should you decide to have #OneMoreMatch."
The former 1-2-3 Kid recently underwent knee surgery and has openly stated that he's hoping it allows him to have one final run in the world of wrestling. Last month he spoke with Sports Illustrated and said, “I’d be psyched to have more matches in a WWE ring. If they’re not interested, there are a lot of other places putting on great matches, too.”
Waltman saw Escorbar's offer and replied by offering to have a conversation about it once he is medically cleared to compete.
I made the decision before I had knee surgery. Let's have a conversation when my Dr clears me to wrestle. -- https://t.co/Reus69x2QM— Sean Waltman (@TheRealXPac) April 9, 2021
