The LWO’s Joaquin Wilde & Cruz Del Toro recently became the latest NXT alumnus to make a return to trip to the WWE Performance Center. They’re there to assist North American champ (and on again/off again SmackDown Superstar) Dragon Lee deal with No Quarter Catch Crew. But before they wrestle on next week’s New Year’s Evil special, they had a quick reunion with the one member of Legado Del Fantasmo that didn’t get a promotion to the main roster — Elektra Lopez.
Was it more than just a nice nod to continuity? Lopez has been palling around with Lola Vice lately, and she didn’t seem too interested in the hugs and well wishes between Elektra, Wilde & Del Toro. When Lopez introduced her, the Women’s Breakout Tournament winner all but rolled her eyes at Rey Mysterio’s crew:

Definitely looks like something that could cause friction between the two badass Latinas. Question is... will that only be an issue on Tuesday nights? Or could Lola find herself allied with Escobar’s new crew along with the recently re-promoted Humberto Carrillo & Angel Garza on the blue brand?
