WWE interested in former Lucha Underground Champions

It was revealed last week that the WWE had been eying former Lucha Underground high flyer Angelico for quite some time. However, it looks like the company would like to add some more stars from LU to their roster.

According to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the WWE has made contact with both Fenix and Pentagon Jr., both of who are former Lucha Underground Champions.

Fenix and Pentagon Jr. are currently in possession of the Pro Wrestling Guerrilla World Tag Team Titles and the Major League Wrestling World Tag Team Titles as Los Lucha Bros and have been teaming up a lot in Impact Wrestling. Pentagon also captured Impact’s World Title and held it for a short time before losing it back to Austin Aries.

While the duo is still locked in with Lucha Underground for another three seasons, they have definitely peaked the WWE’s interest, and we could see them on NXT or the main roster when their contracts are up.

    Yeah, Pentagon would be neutered. As for Fenix…I mean, Lucha House Party time? These are two guys who definitely don’t need the WWE.

  • Greg Bush

    Every Lucha House Party needs some Lucha Bros.

  • Wicka Steve

    Fenix would be added to Lucha House Party and Pentagon would be renamed something stupid like Tormenta Oscura or Tormenta Negro. They wouldn’t let Pentagon do Mexican Destroyer. They wouldn’t let him use his arm breaker. They wouldn’t let him do the Pentagon Driver. They wouldn’t let him do the Package Piledriver. So why even sign the man if you won’t let him do any of the things that got him over?

  • Keith Learmonth

    They’d be right to have an interest in them. They’d probably have to give them a good manager though.

    WWE does not even do anything decent with the masked luchas they have already, why would they need more?

  • Dirt McGirt

    No, please, no. Fenix will get relegated to 205 Live and Pentagon will be renamed and not allowed to break arms. It would also mean the end of Lucha Underground.
