Savio Vega is a Puerto Rican wrestling legend and recently spoke about which star got him into WWE. It is not easy to enter the world of WWE especially if a wrestler is not from the US. Savio Vega appeared on The Bump to speak about his WWE entrance.
He stated that it was WWE Hall of Famer, Scott Hall who is also a member of NWO, that got him into the WWE. “Razor Ramon was the guy that got me into WWE,” said Vega. “When I was in Japan I told Bam Bam Bigelow to say hello to Scott.
When Bam Bam came back he said Scott wanted me to call. So I did and he said ‘I talked to the old man and he wants you to try out. I want you to hear me.’
Savio Vega Reveals the WWE Legend That Got Him Into The WWE
“My first tryout I did as the character TNT.
It was an easy match. When I came to the back he (Scott) chopped me hard and asked ‘what was that?’ He said ‘I want to see the TNT that beat the hell out of me in Puerto Rico. Tomorrow you have another match; show me that.’ So the next day I brought the TNT out.
And they like it and they gave me the job, thanks to Scott Hall”. One of Savio’s biggest rivals was Stone Cold Steve Austin. The conversation quickly shifted to the WWE legend. Savio had nothing but praise of the legendary professional wrestler, Steve Austin.
“We worked together since his tryout,” Savio Vega recalled. “It was in San Antonio, Texas. Pat Patterson came up to me and said ‘you’re going to work with Steve Austin. Let me know what you think.’ I looked at Steve and said ‘I don’t know you, you don’t know me.
My finisher is a Spinning Kick. Let’s call it in the ring.’ He said okay. That chemistry was so perfect. So perfect. Patterson came up after the match and asked how was it. I said it was great, it was beautiful. After that we worked nine months, one year.
We did Wrestlemania, In Your House, the Caribbean Strap Match; every night. The first time I remember him saying, ‘Savio I want to try a finishing move.’ And we did the Stunner. It wasn’t the best one because it was the prototype.
But over time we started fixing and fixing and fixing. Man, happy to work with Steve. Big time”.
