Santos Escobar Pays Tribute To Rey Mysterio At WWE NXT Halloween Havoc, Mysterio Responds (www.wrestlinginc.com)

Tonight’s WWE NXT Halloween Havoc episode saw NXT Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar pay tribute to Rey Mysterio.

Escobar defeated Jake Atlas in a non-title match on tonight’s Halloween Havoc special. Escobar, who wrestled with half of his face painted like the “Day of the Dead” look, paid tribute to Mysterio by sporting a look similar to Rey’s look for his famous WCW Halloween Havoc 1997 match against WWE Hall of Famer Eddie Guerrero.

Escobar tweeted about paying homage to Mysterio, and responded to a photo Dominik Mysterio posted of his father’s gear. Rey responded to Escobar’s tribute, congratulated him on tonight’s win, and gave him a show of respect for the tribute.
