Ex-Lucha Underground Star Confirms Application For WWE’s SummerSlam Try-Outs


Former Lucha Underground Champion Marty The Moth, a.k.a. Marty Casaus, was on a recent episode of The Wrestling Inc. Daily

During it, Marty noted that he will be taking part in the tryouts over WWE SummerSlam weekend. 

“I did a try-out at the Performance Center and then really not too much came out of that, and then I was told to put in for the try-out that’s coming up here at SummerSlam,” Marty revealed. “I did that. Now, I don’t know if I’ve been accepted or anything by that, but I put my stuff in, so we’ll see what happens out of that. That’s SummerSlam weekend, so, who knows? Maybe I can go there and get a try-out and see what happens there. I haven’t heard anything back yet. They have my information, so they know where I’m at.

“I asked him straight up. ‘Okay, you’ve seen me wrestle these last several weeks Steve, so what do you think I really need to work on?’ He’s like, ‘Just get as much work in as you can and then try to put on some muscle,’ and I’ve since done that. I hired a personal trainer. I started eating every three hours. I put on 40 pounds of muscle since Tough Enough. It’s been 10 years, so I definitely got the experience and the muscle mass that he suggested that I get. So it’d be interesting to see how I would fit into that world, especially since I’ve wrestled most of those guys already.

“Rey Rey [Mysterio], I’ve wrestled, Ricochet. In fact, in that WWE thing that they had me put in, I started listing all the people on the roster. I just went down the roster. ‘I wrestled him already, wrestled him already.’ Isaiah ‘Swerve’ Scott, he’s one of the champions right now. He used to be Killshot in Lucha Underground. I had one of my fondest and favorite matches with him in Lucha Underground. It’s not a far fetch for me to be wrestling more of these guys that have already wrestled.”
