Curt Stallion to go head-to-head with Raul Mendoza
After Curt Stallion dared to put NXT Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar's name in his mouth last week, an incensed Raul Mendoza wasted little time challenging Stallion to a matchup.
Although Joaquin Wilde was at his side for the challenge, conspicuous by his absence was none other than Escobar himself.
