Outside talent

Ricochet, in particular, has links to the WWE. He is the roommate of current NXT star Apollo Crews and they actually reside in Orlando, the location of NXT's Performance Center.

Angelico began his wrestling career in Spain and had wrestled with International Wrestling Revolution Group, Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA) and Wrestling New Classic before arriving to work with Lucha Underground.

Although no deals are yet done, the WWE are said to be already planning to have Ricochet work with Finn Balor.
