WWE Raw and 205 Live Superstar, Kalisto was recently a guest on the Steve Austin Show where he discussed an idea Vince McMahon once had for him. Below are some highlights with a H/T to WrestlingInc.com for the transcriptions.
On advice from Rey Mysterio:
“Eddie not only made noise to the latin community. Like, he made noise everywhere. Same with Rey. Rey, his stature, and right now, he has given me so much advice. I was even talking to him about Eddie and how I wish I could have met him and pick his brain. [Eddie] taught [Rey] so much.” Kalisto added, “and he was kind of like giving me advice and I’m still picking his brain, but Eddie and Rey, man, I think they set the world on fire and they made some noise, especially in the latin community because do you know what? That inspired me to actually follow my dream.”
Money In The Bank idea Vince McMahon had:
“So creative started to get on board with everything, especially Vince. Vince got on board with everything, ‘oh Lucha House Party, you guys do some amazing, crazy stuff, man.’ I’m like, ‘hey Vince, we just want to have fun, man. If you want action, you want some cool stuff, we’ll give you good stuff and there is stuff you haven’t seen yet.’ And Vince is like, ‘oh man, do you know that Money In The Bank briefcase?’ I was like, ‘yeah.’ ‘How about we put a big ass piñata there and we put the titles in there?’ And I was like, ‘oh, that is an awesome idea!’ But it’s everything in time and it’s all about throwing stuff at the wall and seeing what sticks.”
