Liam Gabriel: You started wrestling by making a very popular YouTube channel in KBW Wrestling, what was the transition like from wrestling on a trampoline to the actual ring?
Fuego Del Sol: Being that we were so popular on YouTube, I thought I was pretty good. But on the first day of training, I got knocked down to size. It was hard, but my athleticism and love for wrestling made it an easy transition, and once I got the basics down, it was off to the races.
LG: After watching your debut match, I have to ask what influenced the unique entrance music and dance?
FDS: I wanted to stand out, be different! I’ve seen a thousand luchadores who can fly around the ring but don’t show much charisma past the moves done in the ring. I chose the music and dance to get them laughing and clapping, and then once that grabs their attention, I keep it with my performance in the ring. If the crowd goes home remembering nothing but the guy who did the funny dance, at least I entertained them in some way.
LG: Speaking of your debut match, what was it like to debut alongside AK-47, knowing you guys developed with each other in KBW?
FDS: It was amazing! We have such great chemistry! We both trained so hard to get that first match, and then be wrestling each other was icing on the cake. We entertained people on the internet for so long that we knew we could transfer that in front of a live crowd and we did by stealing the show that night.
