On December 8, El Hijo del Fantasma and fellow El Consejo stablemates El Texano Jr. and Silver Cain failed to win the AAA World Trios Championship from Los Psycho Circus (Monster Clown, Murder Clown and Psycho Clown).

World Wrestling Entertainment (2019-present)

At a house show on February 15, 2020, he debuted under his real name, Jorge Bolly, teaming with Raul Mendoza in a victory over Pretty Deadly (Lewis Howley and Sam Stoker). On April 12, WWE announced that, due to NXT Cruiserweight Champion Jordan Devlin being unable to travel as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, a tournament would be held to crown an interim champion. Alcantar Bolly, returning to his El Hijo del Fantasma name, was announced as one of the tournament participants.

Competing in Block B, El Hijo del Fantasma advanced to the final, with wins over Akira Tozawa and Jack Gallagher and a loss to Isaiah Scott. In the final on the June 3 episode of NXT, El Hijo del Fantasma defeated Drake Maverick to become the interim champion. The following week, Drake Maverick congratulated El Hijo del Fantasma on his victory, however, two masked men would surround the ring, with El Hijo del Fantasma helping them attack Maverick. The masked men revealed themselves as Joaquin Wilde and Raul Mendoza. El Hijo del Fantasma would then unmask himself, revealing his new ring name, Santos Escobar. Escobar, Wilde and Mendoza would then form a stable dubbed Legado Del Fantasma.

Escobar would begin a feud with Isaiah Scott soon after, defeating him to retain the Cruiserweight Championship on the August 26 episode of NXT. The following week, Scott would team up with Breezango (Fandango and Tyler Breeze) to defeat Legado Del Fantasma in a Street Fight. Escobar would end his feud with Scott after another victory over him at TakeOver 31. At New Year's Evil, Escobar defeated Gran Metalik to retain the Cruiserweight Championship before retaining the title against Curt Stallion on the February 3, 2021 episode of NXT. Escobar would then have a short feud with Karrion Kross, losing to Kross in a No Disqualification Match on the February 24 episode of NXT.

On the March 17 episode of NXT, NXT Cruiserweight Champion Jordan Devlin returned, confronting Escobar, the interim champion. At TakeOver: Stand & Deliver, Escobar defeated Devlin in a Ladder Match to become the undisputed champion. On the April 13 episode of NXT, Escobar held an open challenge, which was accepted by Kushida. Kushida would defeat Escobar that night, winning the NXT Cruiserweight Championship. A two out of three falls rematch between Escobar and Kushida took place on the May 11 episode of NXT, however, Escobar failed to regain the title. In the following weeks, Legado Del Fantasma began a rivalry with NXT North American Champion Bronson Reed and NXT Tag Team Champions (MSK (Nash Carter and Wes Lee). This culminated in a Six Man Tag Team Winner Takes All Match at TakeOver: In Your House, which Legado lost.

On the August 24 episode of NXT, Legado Del Fantasma defeated Hit Row (Ashante Adonis, Isaiah Scott and Top Dolla) after Legado's newest member, a debuting Elektra Lopez, distracted Scott. Escobar would challenge Scott for the NXT North American Championship on the October 12 episode of NXT, but was unsuccessful.

However, at In Your House, D'Angelo, Lorenzo and Donovan defeated Legado Del Fantasma, and as a result, Legado had to join D'Angelo's family. The two groups combined would be detrimental, as Escobar prevented D'Angelo from winning the North American Championship on the June 21 episode of NXT. At The Great American Bash, D'Angelo revealed that Escobar had been put in hospital. Escobar returned on the August 2 episode of NXT, preventing D'Angelo and Stacks from winning the NXT Tag Team Championship.
