We will have to see how this encounter turns out with the new stipulation, where everything will be allowed. Raul Mendoza and Joaquin Wilde, Escobar’s henchmen, were attacked by Kross a couple of weeks ago and it remains to be seen if they will be available to help the Cruiser Champion.

«Santos Escobar we all know what you are afraid of. It’s pretty obvious at this point. However, at this point I would like to tell you exactly what I am afraid of. I am afraid of how far I am willing to go if I am not controlled by my own means, because fear, fear is everywhere, I can see it, I can smell it, I can hear it and I only feel stronger in its presence. For you, however, that is clearly not the case. This Wednesday, there is no disqualification, no problem. TIC Tac.”
