WWE has added two Mexican stars to their growing roster.
The biggest name of the signings is El Hijo del Fantasma, who was a star of Lucha Underground as King Cuerno. WWE announced him as Jorge Bolly, and as his luchador name suggests, he’s the son of the legendary El Fantasma. Joining him is MIT football veteran Edgar Lopez. He stands 6’4″ and weighs 250, so he’s certainly one of the bigger Mexican talents.
Here’s how WWE describes both men:
The 198-pounder from Mexico City boasts two decades of in-ring experience. A veteran of Mexico’s CMLL and AAA promotions, Bolly has held singles and trios titles during his career, and he won AAA’s Antonio Peña Cup in 2017. The son of legendary luchador El Fantasma, Bolly is proficient in classic lucha libre techniques, combining speed and aerial maneuvers, including arguably sports-entertainment’s most daring tope suicida.
Bolly isn’t the only new signee to be announced. Also joining the WWE Performance Center is Edgar Lopez, also of Mexico. Standing 6-foot-4 and weighing 250 pounds, Lopez played football on the Monterrey Institute of Technology’s Borregos Salvajes squad, where he served as the offensive captain. WWE talent scouts discovered Lopez during last December’s tryout in Santiago, Chile.
