Former Smackdown Superstar Eric Escobar
Eric Escobar made his debut on the main roster being placed in an angle with Vickie Guerrero and performing as a villainous character, during the tapings of SmackDown's tenth anniversary show. In his in-ring debut, he defeated Matt Hardy by pinfall, receiving a spot in the brand's team for the first edition of WWE Bragging Rights. In his debut for the WWE Superstars, he was teamed with Drew McIntyre being placed over the tag team of Hardy and R-Truth. On October 23, 2009, Escobar was one of five wrestlers removed from Team SmackDown of Bragging Rights. Escobar was included in his first and only titular contest in WWE on November 27, 2009, losing to John Morrison for the WWE Intercontinental Championship. The angle with Guerrero was ended in a skit that featured a spot where she yelled at him and slapped him in the face, prompting a physical confrontation between both characters, which ultimately ended with Escobar turning into a face character.

During his face run, Escobar was punished by Guerrero, who put Escobar in handicap matches against Hart Dynasty (David Hart Smith and Tyson Kidd) and Jeri-Show (Chris Jericho and Big Show). On December 18, Escobar wrestled in his final WWE match, losing to Kane in what was another punishment for Escobar by Guerrero. On January 17, 2010, Pérez was released from his WWE contract
