A worthy substitute. One of the most valuable resources that WWE has is the ability to draw wrestlers up from its NXT developmental system. It allows WWE to get wrestlers ready for the main roster and then call them up at the right time. Sometimes they are called up as originally planned, but occasionally a change has to be made. That took place recently but for a very specific reason.

Earlier this month, Legado del Fantasma made their main roster debut on SmackDown, attacking Hit Row. However, Elektra Lopez was missing, with Zelina Vega being with the team instead. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Vega replaced Lopez because WWE felt that she was a better opponent for Hit Row’s B-Fab in future matches. There is no word on what will be done with Lopez going forward.

Opinion: This is the kind of thing that makes sense once you hear the reasoning, but it isn’t exactly a great thing to see if you were a fan of the original Legado del Fantasma. Hopefully Lopez gets to do something else later on, as she is talented enough to deserve some kind of spot. Maybe she needs more time in NXT, and I’m sure a repackaging away from the team is a possibility.

What do you think of the change? Who should have been n the team? Let us know in the comments below.
