Kalisto Expains the Advantages of the Mask
Steve Austin recently interviewed WWE Superstar Kalisto for his podcast. Below are some additional highlights (transcript via WrestlingInc.com).
Kalisto on how his mask helps him keep his privacy: “That’s the cool thing about me, I guess. I get my privacy because nobody knows what I look like. I can go in and out at a restaurant or whatever, bar, anywhere! Anywhere I want to go and I don’t get bothered. Now, when I’m with Sasha, ‘hey, that [has] got to be Kalisto, right?’ I’m like, ‘eeh, hey, what’s up, man? Do you want a picture?’”
Kalisto being friends with and working with the stars of Lucha Underground: “Oh yeah, Pentagón, Jr., Fénix, everybody that’s there, I’ve wrestled, and I’ve been in the ring with everyone [on the] show pretty much. It’s a funny story with Pentagón because I was Octagón, Jr. in Mexico. And then, from there, they created Pentagón, Jr. And then, we had this feud. We only had one pay-per-view, but then I signed with WWE. So it was a short term [run], but it worked out great for Pentagón and Pentagón is doing big stuff right now. His cero miedo, man, it’s going all over! Zero fear, right now, he’s on top.”
Kalisto on learning different styles: “I love learning different styles. I love watching ballet and Cirque du Soleil, the circus. The reason is because, look, watch, I’ll tell you why, because the way they base and they way they throw people and I’m like, ‘oh, if they throw me or if they throw this person a certain [way], that could make them twist.’”
