Kalisto Speaks About WWE Following WWE Release

Kalisto is a former WWE high flying superstar, and he recently spoke about the WWE. Kalisto was released this year with many other popular WWE superstars. He was actually a masked superstar. He spoke about the WWE with Chris Van Vliet.

He was released in April. Kalisto spoke about the ring name that he will use now that he is out of the WWE.

Kalisto on Knowing That He Would Be Released Soon

“Samuray Del Sol,” Kalisto said. “That’s the name that I started with.

I actually started with ‘Samurai’ first, then I had to spell it differently, with a Y, just to be different. I started as Samuray Del Sol in Chicago, that’s where I adopted the name. Then everything else is history”.

He then spoke about not pitching an idea to Vince McMahon. It seems like that is one of his biggest regrets. He actually wished to work with Rey Mysterio. “My biggest regret is not pitching my idea to Vince,” Kalisto said.

“Pretty much the whole world knew except for Vince. I wanted to do a mask vs. mask match against Rey Mysterio. I had Rey’s blessing, Dominik’s blessing, every one. They all loved it. I showed it to Paul Heyman too.

Paul said ‘this is genius, do it.’ I was like let’s do this! It’s just such a good story, it’s my biggest regret not talking to Vince about it. Right before I was going to, I got released”.

Chris then asked him whether he was ever prepared to work without his mask. Kalisto revealed he was ready to do anything that the WWE asked him to do. “I was prepared for anything,” Kalisto said. “I had such a great story that nobody would have expected.

So for Paul Heyman to say that’s genius, I got something. The writers, everyone loved it. I even showed it to Daniel Bryan and Edge, they loved it. But it’s my own fault. I should have gone to Vince”. Kalisto wasn’t surprised that WWE released him.

He wasn’t actually used regularly by WWE much so he wasn’t a very important superstar as well. “Deep down I did,” Kalisto said on whether he felt his release was coming. “I wanted to lay everything down on the table and say ‘here it is. I am giving you my best. You take it or you don’t.’ They didn’t and I feel good”.
