WWE could be on the verge of pulling the trigger on Legado Del Fantasma's main roster call-up as soon as this week.

PWInsider's Mike Johnson reports that WWE has plans on debuting the former NXT group on SmackDown. Santos Escobar, Joaquin Wilde, Elektra Lopez, and Cruz Del Toro could be blue brand bound as imminently as tomorrow's special 'Season Premiere' episode in Worcester, Massachusetts.

Sources believe that Legado are due to start on the main roster this week, as pitches involving them have been doing the rounds.

Fightful Select reports that Legado Del Fantasma were written off NXT television earlier this year with a view to repositioning them on Raw or SmackDown. The outlet had previously reported the group was main roster-bound back in August, and hasn't heard if WWE plans on changing any of their ring names.

Legado came together under Santos Escobar's leadership back in 2020, with the former NXT North American Champion, Wilde, and Del Toro comprising the original unit. Lopez joined the group following developmental's transformation into NXT 2.0 in September 2021. This August saw Fantasma lose his spot on the NXT roster after putting his career on the line in his feud with Tony D'Angelo, prompting his stablemates to walk out with him a week later.
