WWE reportedly have massive plans for LWO
After the vicious attack by Santos Escobar, the fate of LWO is in a precarious state. Rey Mysterio, who was considered the leader of the group, was sidelined by the 39-year-old. As of now, the group has lost two of its members. However, according to recent reports, WWE has some huge plans for the faction in the coming weeks.
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Radio, WWE is planning to have Group vs. Group situation among the faction. One group will be led by Mysterio, while another group will be led by Santos Escobar. Joaquin Wilde and Cruz Del Toro are reported to side with Santos Escobar. On the other hand, Carlito is expected to join the legendary luchador.
It’s gonna be group vs group. It’s gonna be Santos and some partners vs Rey with partners. I don’t know what they’re going to do with the LWO name, which side gets it. Maybe they’re even going to feud over the name, I don’t know.Dave Meltzer on LWO’s future
Furthermore, the report suggests that the groups might also go back and forth over the legacy of the name LWO. As per some other rumors, NXT superstars Angel Garza and Carillo might receive a call up to the main roster to join sides with Santos Escobar in the near future. It is going to be interesting to see the future of this deeply personal feud between the mentor and protege.
