• SmackDown Star Officially Turns Babyface
After the February 10th episode of SmackDown went off the air, WWE posted a video of Santos Escobar and Rey Mysterio sharing a moment backstage.
Santos said he used to watch Rey wrestle on TV along with his father and hopes to make Rey’s legacy his own one day.
Both men then exchanged masks to show mutual respect.
On last night’s episode of SmackDown, Escobar once again showed respect to Mysterio in a backstage segment.
Dominik Mysterio interrupted them and asked Santos how much longer he plans to kiss up to his father.
Santos said if Dominik doesn’t know how to respect his father, then he can teach him that.
With this TV segment, WWE has officially turned Santos Escobar into a babyface. He has been pretty much a heel throughout his WWE (NXT) run prior to this.
