That has potential. Every so often, a wrestler will change from good to bad or vice versa. These changes can alter the course of their future as sometimes going to the other side is the right change for them. These changes can be exactly what a wrestler needs at times and we might have seen a big one for an up and coming star after this week’s SmackDown went off the air.

The main event of this week’s SmackDown was a fatal four way between Karrion Kross, Madcap Moss, Santos Escobar and Rey Mysterio. The match was the first time ever for two latter two to face off in an official match. Following the show, the two met in the locker room, with Escobar talking about how he wanted to take Rey’s legacy. Escobar said that while he still wants it, he also respect Mysterio, and presented him with his mask. Mysterio responded by saying Escobar had told him that story before and then presented Escobar with a mask of his own. The two hugged and shoot hands to end the clip.
That’s respect. Check out the exchange, their match, plus what Escobar has to live up to:
Opinion: I’m curious to see where this goes, as Escobar is either turning full on good or may be taking some of his edge off. Escobar is a talented star who could become a much bigger deal in WWE. Mysterio is in his late 40s and can only go on so much longer, so why not see how much of that mantle Escobar can pick up? Escobar is 38 and a veteran who is still new on the main roster, so maybe it is worth a shot.
What do you think of the clip? How big of a star can Escobar be in WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
