With an air of menace, Escobar proclaimed, “What happened to Dragon Lee at Survivor Series was just a taste of what I’m capable of. Anyone who dares to step into my path will face the same consequences.”
He also mentioned about Randy Orton’s appearance to this weeks Smackdown. Escobar said, “I just heard that Randy’s gonna show up on SmackDown this Friday. Is that correct? Well, I hope he doesn’t show up. I know he’s the legend killer, but I just sent a legend away for good. I don’t want to send him away too. So if he’s watching this, I hope he doesn’t show up.”
Orton’s return was a welcome sight for WWE fans who have been eagerly awaiting his comeback. The 14-time world champion is one of the most respected and feared wrestlers in the history of the company, and his return is sure to shake up the WWE landscape.

Santos Escobar feud with LWO
The feud between Santos Escobar and the LWO (Latino World Order) is one of the most captivating storylines in WWE today. The rivalry began in November 2023 when Escobar attacked Rey Mysterio, the leader of the LWO. This act of betrayal set the stage for a series of intense confrontations and high-stakes matches between the two factions.
Carlito was supposed to be in the match with Escobar in the Survivor Series, but due to the attack of Escobar, Carlito met with an injury. So, Carlito was removed from the match and Dragon Lee was added to the match. The match was dominated by Escobar and he won. During the match he disrespected Dragon Lee by trying to remove his mask.
During the interview, Escobar said, “I’m really happy. It was just another opportunity at the PLE to demonstrate what Santos Escobar is all about. Just like I said before, and I’ll say it again, it is just an example of what happens when you cross Santos Escobar. That’s it.”
He also mentioned that he was a major part in forming the LWO and that Dragon Lee does not fit in. It is clear that Escobar will target the remaining members of the LWO until defeating everyone.
