Jorge Luis Alcantar Bolly (born April 30, 1984), is a Mexican second-generation professional wrestler. He is currently signed to WWE, where he performs on the SmackDown brand under the ring name Santos Escobar and is the leader of Legado Del Fantasma. He was a former member of the Latino World Order. He was also a former one-time NXT Cruiserweight Champion.

Before his WWE career, Alcantar worked as El Hijo del Fantasma for Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide (AAA) from 2013 to 2019. In AAA, he won the AAA Fusión Championship, the AAA Latin American Championship, the 2017 Copa Antonio Peña, and was previously the longest-reigning AAA World Cruiserweight Champion in history. He previously worked for Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) from 2008 to 2013. In CMLL, he held the CMLL World Middleweight Championship, as well as the CMLL World Trios Championship twice (with Héctor Garza and La Máscara).

Alcantar has also worked under the ring name King Cuerno for the U.S.-based Lucha Underground promotion from 2014 to 2019. Through AAA's promotional partnerships, Alcantar also worked on several shows for Impact Wrestling, while under AAA contract. His father is luchador El Fantasma, who is the head of the Mexico City Boxing and Professional Wrestling commission. His cousin wrestles under the name "Fantasma Jr.", while his uncle worked under the name "Ángel de la Muerte".

Professional wrestling career

Early career (2000–2008)

Alcantar began his professional wrestling career in 2000,[4] as the masked ring character "Top Secret". While working under the Top Secret name he wore a black mask with gold trim around the eye openings.[5] In 2003, Alcantar adopted a new mask and name as he became "El Hijo del Fantasma" (English: "The Son of El Fantasma"), revealing to the wrestling world that he was the son of El Fantasma.[6] After the name change he began wearing a mask that closely resembled that of the comic book character The Phantom, just like his father did before him.[6]

His first documented match as El Hijo del Fantasma saw him team up with his father and his cousin, who adopted the ring name "Fantasma Jr.". They defeated Los Oficiales (Guardia, Oficial, and Vanguardia) at an International Wrestling Revolution Group (IWRG) show on December 14, 2003.[7]

Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (2008–2013)

Alcantar was brought to Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) in 2008, after he left IWRG in 2004. During his time in CMLL, he won the CMLL World Trios Championship on two occasions, teaming with Héctor Garza and La Mascara. The three were first teamed up to participate in a tournament for the vacant CMLL World Trios Championship. Despite never having teamed before, the trio made it all the way to the finals, and then defeated Blue Panther, Dos Caras Jr., and Místico in the finals to win the tournament and the championship.[8] On August 5, 2008, they lost their title to Último Guerrero, Negro Casas, and Atlantis. They had a rematch where Garza, La Mascara, and Hijo del Fantasma regained their title on January 18, 2009.[9] On July 21, 2009, Hijo del Fantasma defeated Averno to win the CMLL World Middleweight Championship. After the match, Averno showed respect to Fantasma by congralutating him and celebrating the victory.[10] On February 14, 2010, after only one successful title defense since July 2009, Hijo del Fantasma lost the Middleweight title to Negro Casas.[11]

In March 2010 signs of dissention amongst the Trios champions began showing as Garza walked out on the team during a trios match mistakenly thinking that one of his teammates had attacked him.[12] Following the walk out Garza kept insincerely insisting that he was still a tecnico and that there was no tension on his team. Further doubts about Garza's allegiance arose when he teamed up with the Rúdo Pólvora to win the 2010 Gran Alternativa tournament.[13] When Garza, La Máscara and Hijo del Fantasma were booked for a CMLL World Trios defense the following week, Garza complained that his partners agreed contesting to the match without asking him, but swore that he would still be professional about it.[14] During the title defense on the May 7, 2010 Super Viernes Garza attacked both Hijo del Fantasma and La Máscara, allowing La Ola Amarilla (Hiroshi Tanahashi, Shigeo Okumura and Taichi Ishikari) to win the CMLL World Trios Championship, turning full blown rudo in the process.[15] On October 28, 2012, Hijo del Fantasma unsuccessfully challenged Dragón Rojo Jr. for the NWA World Historic Middleweight Championship.[16] El Hijo del Fantasma was paired up with rudo El Felino for the 2013 Torneo Nacional de Parejas Increibles ("National Incredible Pairs Tournament"), a tag team tournament teaming rudos with tecnicos. The team lost to La Máscara and Averno in the first round despite Averno and La Máscara being longtime rivals.[17][18]

On October 1, 2017, at Héroes Inmortales XI, Fantasma won the 2017 Copa Antonio Peña tournament, which meant he also earned the vacant AAA Latin American Championship.[27] He subsequently became involved in a long running storyline with Texano Jr., initially over the Latin American champions, with a steel cage match at Guerra de Titanes that El Hijo del Fantasma won by disqualification. After the match, it was announced that the two would face off in a Luchas de Apuestas at the Rey de Reyes show.[28] On March 4, 2018, at the Rey de Reyes show, El Hijo del Fantasma defeated Texano Jr., forcing the latter to have all his hair shaved off as a result.[29]

Park and Pentagón Jr. would all risk their masks in a Poker de Aces (English: "Poker Aces") match at Triplemanía XXVI.In the build-up to Triplemanía XXVI, El Hijo del Fantasma turned rudo once more, forming a faction known as Los Mercenarios ("The Mercenaries") with Texano Jr., Rey Escorpión, and La Máscara. At Triplemanía XXVI, held on August 26, 2018, L.A. Park defeated El Hijo del Fantasma in the Poker de Aces match. After his loss, El Hijo del Fantasma was forced to unmask and reveal his real name, Jorge Luis Alcantar Bolly, to everyone watching.[2] On December 12, 2018, El Hijo del Fantasma fought Drago in the AAA Latin American Championship. Drago defeated El Hijo del Fantasma to win the Championship in one of the featured matches of Guerra de Titanes.[30]

In September 2014, Hijo del Fantasma began working for Lucha Underground under the ring name "King Cuerno" (Spanish for "King Antler" or "King Horn"), a "big game" hunter.[3] King Cuerno started a feud with Drago and, on January 21, 2015, King Cuerno defeated Drago in a Last Man Standing match.[32] On February 4, 2015, King Cuerno attacked Johnny Mundo, initiating a feud between them. The rivalry concluded on the March 11, 2015 episode when Mundo and King Cuerno wrestled in a steel cage match, which was won by Mundo.[32] On November 14, 2015, King Cuerno defeated Fénix to win the Gift of the Gods Championship.[33] He lost the title back to Fénix in a ladder match on November 21.[34] At Ultima Lucha Dos, King Cuerno was defeated by Mil Muertes in a deathmatch.[35]

He was not seen in season three of the series until the finale Ultima Lucha Tres, where he attacked Mil Muertes and stole the gauntlet that was contested for by Muertes, Jeremiah Crane and Brian Cage. The storyline started at the end of season 3 and continued into season 4, with King Cuerno and Muertes receiving a double disqualification on September 12, 2018. A week later the feud between King Cuerno and Muertes distracted both wrestlers from their match, allowing Pentagón Dark (previously known as Pentagón Jr.) to successfully defend the Lucha Underground Championship against the two.[35] The rivalry between the two ended inconclusively in a match where Pentagón Dark defeated King Cuerno, Mil Muertes and El Dragon Azeca Jr. on September 26, 2018, which was the last time the two faced off in the Lucha Underground Championship.[35] He was released from his contract on March 26, 2019.[36]
