Jorge Alcantar, better known as El Hijo del Fantasma, is reportedly headed to WWE. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, he is expected to sign with NXT and debut at the Performance Center this September.

Fantasma has won championships with both AAA and CMLL in Mexico, but may be best known with U.S. audiences for his time in Lucha Underground as King Cuerno, one of the few characters that started from the very beginning in season one and made it all the way through to season four.

He is a former LU Gift of the Gods Champion, and notably faced Mil Muertes in a death match at Ultimo Lucha Dos. He has also worked several dates for Impact Wrestling, and wrestled for independent promotions in the U.S. in recent years including WrestleCircus in Texas, and Warrior Wrestling in Chicago.
