In a recent interview with Freddie Prinze Jr. as part of the Wrestling With Freddie podcast, WWE SmackDown superstar Santos Escobar discussed several topics, including what’s in store for him next year, as well as the freedom he has for his character in WWE.

“I think it’s important to master your instrument in what we do, specifically you have to be good at cutting promos. Why, it’s important to share, whatever the storyline is and whatever you’re feeling with the audience so they can relate or not, but more importantly understand, which is why I did what I did in LA, go to Hollywood, train my acting and become better at it.

Of course, I do not have the pen, and I do not write the storyline, but what I can do, and what I’ve been trying to do and what I will keep on doing is get myself better, keep learning, keep growing, and keep becoming a better instrument so that when they write these things, I’m there.

I haven’t missed one important show in the year, and this is my first year on the main roster. I’m thankful, I hope that I get more, but I’m already doing a lot of stuff that I wasn’t doing 6 months ago, they’re giving me a lot of freedom and all this effort that I’m putting into it, it’s paying off and I’m just glad it’s happening. Right now, the storyline is what it is and I love it and I have the opportunity to show more of what I got and hopefully we’ll get to WrestleMania.”
