WWE Introduces Possible New Faction

WWE teased a new faction on the 205 Live brand, which may consist of three masked superstars. Kalisto, Gran Metalik and Lince Dorado teamed up together and were referred to as the "Lucha House Party" by WWE:

The names of their opponents weren't named, which hints that WWE may be building towards making the trio a dominant faction - similar to how they built up Braun Strowman. At least, that's what it looked like on this Tuesday evening.

Kalisto last appeared on WWE television when he faced Enzo Amore for the Cruiserweight Championship in a kickoff show for Survivor Series. Kalisto lost the match and hasn't returned since, which suggests that WWE is planning towards using him in strictly on 205 Live.


Dorado - who first joined the WWE in 2016 as an entry for the Cruiserweight Classic tournament - debuted on 205 Live on Dec. 13 of that year. He had a brief appearance on a June episode of Monday Night Raw last year, where he lost to Neville. He lost to Kalisto on 205 Live two weeks ago in the Cruiserweight Championship, but it looks like the two are ready to form a new stable together.

As for Gren Metalik, he also joined the WWE in 2016 after entering the Cruiserweight Classic after spending six years with New Japan Pro Wrestling. Metalik debuted on 205 Live of February last year, and has since been pushed as one of the top competitors on the brand.

205 Live could sure use a big faction like the Lucha House Party, as the brand continues to gain more relevancy. Drake Maverick (known as Rockstar Spud), was introduced as the general manager last month by Daniel Bryan. With Buddy Murphy also getting called up from NXT, 205 Live has been seeing some sweeping changes.

But is the Lucha House Party for real, or was this a one-off union? We'll find out in the coming weeks.
