During the transmission of NXT through USA Network, Gran Metalik challenged Santos Escobar to a fight for the NXT Cruiserweight Championship in next Wednesday’s New Year’s Evil special.
Legado del Fantasma provided a promotion in the ring where Santos Escobar clarified that it has been a great year for his team and no matter how hard William Regal tries to get him, challengers, there is no one who can take away the Cruise Championship. Immediately, Gran Metalik and Lince Dorado appeared where they had a confrontation in Spanish with Escobar.
