Report: Faction being called up to WWE SmackDown

The call-up may happen as soon as this Friday's SmackDown season premiere.

Legado del Fantasma could soon be making their WWE main roster debut.

PWInsider reported on Thursday that the plan is for Legado del Fantasma (Santos Escobar, Joaquin Wilde, Cruz Del Toro & Elektra Lopez) to be part of the SmackDown roster when they make their main roster debut. PWInsider wrote that they've been told Legado del Fantasma may appear as soon as this Friday's episode of SmackDown.

This August, Escobar was banished from NXT as a stipulation of losing to Tony D'Angelo at NXT Heatwave. There was a segment the week after Heatwave where Escobar picked up the rest of Legado del Fantasma in the parking lot and told them he wasn't going to leave NXT without them.

Dave Meltzer confirmed in August that Legado del Fantasma were slated for a main roster call-up.

The DCU Center in Worcester, Massachusetts is hosting this Friday's SmackDown. It's the "season premiere" episode of the show. It will feature a face-to-face confrontation between Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns and his next challenger Logan Paul. Plus, Gunther will defend the Intercontinental title against Sheamus in a rematch from Clash at the Castle.
