Kalisto remembers the day he was drafted to SmackDown. He’s been counting the days since that happened, and he’s not happy about the results.
The former Lucha House Party member took to Twitter and release a video. He is using the past 161 days as motivation, despite the fact he hasn’t been used. He doesn’t view this move on WWE’s part as disrespectful. He will simply have to wait along with everyone else.
Premier show. The land of opportunity. Smackdown. Thank you. Gracias. Thank you for allowing me to sit at your table. I am beyond grateful. But unfortunately, there’s only room for one at that table. I’m sorry, guys. Lucha House Party. I mean don’t get me wrong. Lince Dorado, he is the king of Lucha extreme. Gran Metalik? Well respected in Mexico and the king of the ropes. But you guys lack…you lack patience. You guys need to learn still. You need to survive just like I did. You need to swim with the sharks just like I did. You need to learn.
Do you guys believe that it has been 161 days? 161 days since I’ve been drafted to Smackdown. I know what you guys are thinking. You think that’s a disrespect to me? That’s a demotion to me? You think I went home and cried because I’m not booked? No. Every single day, every hour, minute, second…I used that as fuel for my fire. And that fire is building up and it keeps building and it keeps burning for that one match and that one motivation that kept haunting me and it keeps haunting me forever. You guys know what I’m talking about. I mean, we all want the same thing. So you are going to have to just…wait.
We’ll have to see what is next for Kalisto. It’s never a good sign to be kept off television for this long, especially when he’s healthy and ready to go. Perhaps a spot will open up for him on the blue brand during the road to WrestleMania.
