Santos Escobar to make WWE 205 Live in-ring debut


NXT Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar is making his 205 Live in-ring debut on tonight's episode of the show.

WWE has announced that Escobar vs. Oney Lorcan in a non-title match is set for tonight's 205 Live. Escobar made his first appearance on 205 Live last week when he accompanied his Legado del Fantasma stablemates Raul Mendoza & Joaquin Wilde for their win against Leon Ruff & Liam Gray.

On night two of NXT's Great American Bash this Wednesday, Legado del Fantasma defeated Drake Maverick & Breezango in a six-man tag match. Escobar got the win by pinning Maverick after hitting the Phantom Driver.

Lorcan lost to Timothy Thatcher on Great American Bash night one last week. After the match, Thatcher refused to immediately let go of the Fujiwara armbar that he submitted Lorcan with.

Mansoor will also be in action as he faces Tehuti Miles on tonight's 205 Live. This will be the first time Mansoor has wrestled since March. He's wrestled on 205 Live once before, defeating Brian Kendrick in November 2019.
