Backstage News On Kalisto’s WWE Release


Kalisto was released from WWE last week among 10 wrestlers. 

Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the Lucha House Party stable with Kalisto, Lince Dorado, and Gran Metalik was the idea of Dorado. 


Gran thought it was a good way to be used and make some money off merchandise. Vince McMahon liked the idea and went with it. Kalisto grew unhappy about being a part of an act that was booked as jokes on the lower card and kept asking to be removed from the group but turned down. 

Dorado asked officials if he and Metalik could be a team without Kalisto, since Kalisto wanted out anyway, WWE signed off on it. and that’s when WWE did the angle for the split last year.

When the split happened, Kalisto simply was not used anymore and thus his release.
