Rumor: WWE Close To Stealing Pentagon Jr & Fenix From Impact

There has been yet another indication that Impact stars Fenix and Pentagon Jr. may very well be on their way to WWE.

While NXT is perhaps the biggest brand in professional wrestling outside of WWE's main roster right now, it serves more of a purpose than simply trying to, and often succeeding, upstage the main roster on TakeOver weekends. It is still in place to either prepare new signees for the main roster and get them used to WWE's style or to train brand new Superstars for the company.

There are very few wrestlers who sign for WWE nowadays that are allowed to completely bypass NXT. The handful of examples on the main roster right now include AJ Styles and his former Bullet Club buddies Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows. Even wrestlers as talented as Finn Balor and Shinsuke Nakamura had to learn the ropes down at Full Sail first.

It is looking increasingly likely that the next wrestlers to go down that path will be luchador brothers Rey Fenix and Pentagon Jr. There have been rumors that the masked wrestlers are on their way to WWE for a while, and MLW may have just dropped another hint via its Twitter account. The promotion tweeted about the pair, ending the post with "MLW fans may be shocked to see what’s nxt!"

Fenix and Pentagon are currently MLW's Tag Team Champions, however, the company teased that "a monumental moment is on the horizon" for the two of them. Both men are also coming off the back of big appearances at All In. Fenix competed in the main event alongside Rey Mysterio and Bandido while his brother Pentagon went one-on-one with Kenny Omega for the first time ever.

While all signs currently seem to point towards Pentagon and Fenix becoming NXT Superstars, there are some potential hiccups. Apparently, both men still have three seasons of Lucha Underground left on their contracts. Nevertheless, at this moment in time, both men seem reluctant to take bookings in 2019. WWE has shown an interest in the performers since the summer of 2017, and probably even before that, when it asked fans if they would like to see the Lucha Bros in WWE.
