I went this evening to Nuevo Laredo, Mexico and there was a new edition of Lucha Magazine and the headline was “Guess who is going to WWE?” so I started to read the magazine and it turn out to be Essa Rios (Mr. Aguila). Just to let you know.

It has been reported that Essa Rios and Juventud Guerrera are possibly coming into WWE, on the heels of Psicosis being signed to a contract, however nothing more has been revealed.
