Fuego Del Sol Speaks About Receiving an AEW Contract
“The first-ever Rampage. It’s kind of hard to put into words. It was such an overwhelming feeling.
I remember all day just being excited because I never even wrestled on Dynamite before. To have over 40 matches in the company and never get to be on TV, the pressure was already on just to have a good match, just to perform well that night.
And then to be shocked the way I was surprised afterwards, just even thinking about it, I get the chills," del Sol said. “I get the goosebumps thinking about it because I had no clue. A lot of people online like to joke around and speculate and talk about their conspiracy theories, but I had no clue.
I was told to lay there through the break and get the reception from the crowd after we come back. And I remember, I’m just sitting there trying to look tough as we come back from break because I just went through hell with Miro, and Sammy Guevara’s music hits, and I immediately turned my head and am just overwhelmed with emotion.
“Me and Sammy have never interacted on screen together, and he’s a big star in AEW. And I didn’t know if they wanted us to ever be even connected on screen at all. So, to let him, my best friend, come out and hand me the contract, and do it on the biggest stage it could possibly be done on the first Rampage was one of the greatest moments of my career.
Probably the greatest moment of my career”. Del Sol mostly works on AEW Dark and AEW Elevation. He spoke about how unique it is and also the support that he has received from fans. “I think it’s very unique.
I always joke with people. It definitely wasn’t the 40 losses that got me liked by the audience,” Fuego Del Sol pointed out. “It was totally, 100%, Sammy Guevara because I really didn’t have a giant name on the indie scene. Some of these guys have got to come up on the indie scene and really make a name for themselves”.
