Pentagon Jr. and Phoenix are quite difficult to ignore at this time. They are everywhere, including Impact, MLW, Lucha Underground, and in all indies and in Mexico. WWE wants to bring all the popular talent so that other companies can not have them.
In the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it was pointed out that WWE’s interest in Pentagon Jr. and Phoenix could take a very interesting turn very soon because they say that the dates reserved for 2019 cannot be confirmed yet.
“[WWE] did a 180 on Matt Riddle for that reason. Pentagon Jr. and Fenix have told promoters who they’ve booked dates for in 2019 that those dates are in question. “
“WWE has taken a 180-degree turn with Matt Riddle for the same reason. Pentagon Jr. and Fenix have told the promoters with whom they had already announced dates in 2019, that now they were in doubt “
Only time will tell what will happen to Lucha Underground because the Lucha Brothers signed a very long contract with the television program and El Rey Network but WWE bought contracts from other fighters before, even though the company does not want to. This is another kind of “wait and see” situation but things could have an opportunity to be interesting very soon.
Since a few years ago WWE is recovering interest in hiring Mexican talent for their company and with the arrival of Andrade Cien Almas to the main roster with the most possible signing of Rey Mysterio by the company and with the arrival of Ultimo Ninja Last week at the Performance Center it seems that this is coming true.
