You can listen to the full interview right here. Below are a few of the highlights:
Why is the Lucha Libre style of wrestling catching on with American fans?
“It’s more difficult in some ways and fun in some ways,” he said. “I look at it as a plus. Instead of having four you have six wrestlers. More activity comes out of six than four people. It’s non-stop action.”
What was it like training with Japanese legend Ultimo Dragon?
“That was amazing,” he said. “I met him in a European tour. We trained and lived in a dojo. At midnight we would get in the ring. He wasn’t too much involved in the training. He gave real advice. He would get in the ring but he watched us from the side.”
It’s been rumored that WWE is interested in signing Angelico. Do you want to see in WWE?
