They have an idea. We are on the way to WrestleMania 39 and that means we should be in for some big stories on the way to the show. That could mean a variety of changes as the stories come together. This can include some people being added into the stories that have already been started. It seems that is the case as a new star is being injected into a long running feud.

Up Next? WWE Taking A Closer Look At NXT Star

Over the last few weeks, Santos Escobar has taken a new direction as he shows respect for Rey Mysterio. This included standing up for Rey against Rey’s son Dominik and Rhea Ripley this week on SmackDown. According to Wrestling Observer Radio, Escobar is likely to play a roll in the Rey vs. Dominik feud, which is expected to lead to a match at WrestleMania 39. This comes as Escobar was added into the story out of nowhere and has stood up for Rey since showing respect to him earlier this month. There was no specific story given and this was given as speculation rather than a definitive plan.

There are some talented stars involved in this story. Check out the three men involved:

Opinion: This is an interesting twist, as Rey vs. Dominik on its own is a good enough WrestleMania program. At the same time though, Escobar getting some spotlight as part of the story is also a way to go. If WWE can elevate Escobar and Dominik at the same time then good for them, as both of them could use the help. Escobar has been needing to find a way to break out for a long time now, and this very well may be the move.

What do you think of Escobar being included in the feud? Where will it go at WrestleMania? Let us know in the comments below.
