Santos Escobar wants WWE to bring a Premium Live Event to Mexico.
Coming off the success of WWE Backlash in Puerto Rico, many fans and performers are wondering what country WWE will bring a Premium Live Event to next.
Throughout the long history of WWE, the company has never hosted a Premium Live Event/Pay-Per-View in Mexico.
In a interview with the Getting Over podcast that was recorded before Backlash, Santos Escobar talked about the next step for WWE in an international sense and how Mexico is ready for a Premium Live Event or even a WrestleMania.
“Trust me, this weekend means a lot. Not just to me, but to any other Latino Americans out there. Of course, Puerto Rico is gonna be amazing, but what’s the next step? Mexico City? The Aztec Stadium, over 110,000 people there for a premium live event maybe, for a WrestleMania maybe? The superstars are ready for it, we’re ready for it, Mexico is ready for it, Latin America is ready for it. Yes, every time I can, I mention it to who ever wants to listen. The stage is there, it’s set. We’re ready to go, take over the world.”
WWE is set to visit Saudi Arabia later this month for the Night Of Champions premium live event. In July, WWE will return to London for the Money In The Bank premium live event.
In a separate recent interview, Escobar said that he considers Bad Bunny to be a WWE superstar, not a Grammy winner. Click here to learn more.
