Alberto Del Rio Talks About Kalisto, Other WWE Superstars

In an interview which aired on Fox Sports Mexico, Alberto Del Rio, who returned to WWE in late 2015 and defeated John Cena to become United States Champion on his first night back with the company, discussed his recent field with Kalisto, a young luchador who deposed Del Rio as US Champion at the 2015 Royal Rumble Pay Per View.

“Kalisto is someone with a lot of talent. The rivalry between us is only in the ring. I’m doing the same thing for Kalisto that Rey Mysterio did for me. When I first got to WWE, Rey Mysterio introduced me to all the people I had to meet. He guided me and gave me all the advice that I needed to know to succeed in the company. Now I’m doing the same thing for Kalisto to see if he can have the same success I had. Hopefully there’s more Mexican wrestlers in WWE one day.”

Del Rio was also asked to give rapid-fire, one sentence responses to pictures of other WWE Superstars:

AJ Styles: “Tremendous talent.”

The Rock: “One of the biggest stars in history.”

Undertaker: “We call him the ‘Godfather of Wrestling’.”

John Cena: “A great rival and I have a lot of respect towards him.”

Roman Reigns: “A young promise now turned into a reality.”

Kalisto: “I wish him the best in his life and his career.”

Rusev: “My “Compadre” I call him “Ramiro” since his name is Miro.”

Paige: “Well, what can I say. I’ll introduce her to my nephew.”

Dean Ambrose: “A great talent and even crazier outside the ring.”
