Lucha Underground star Johnny Mundo recently was the guest on KevinGillShow.com. Here are some highlights from the interview…
Regarding the comments he made about Reigns, who he considers a friend, Mundo said it was just his way of “busting his balls a little bit.”
“I did this interview. And I put him over, like he’s a really nice guy and a buddy of mine. They were like how would you like to wrestle him? And I kind of said off the cuff, a little jokingly and a little seriously I’d love to wrestle him in ten years after he’s learned to work. Did I mean that? I just made the comment to bust his balls a little bit.”
As far as the success of the Lucha Underground promotion, Mundo thinks it’s a great thing because it’s another place for wrestlers to work.
“Any pro wrestler will say the more promotions that have successful TV shows, the better. The more places to work as a pro wrestler, the better. Ultimately pro wrestling really comes down to what transpires between pro wrestlers and the fans. And the more opportunities, the more canvases, the more outlets, the better.”
Mundo also spoke about Rey Mysterio coming to Lucha Underground. As Mundo explains, Mysterio is arguably the most popular Luchador of all-time.
“I can’t say enough good things about Rey. He’s somebody that’s possibly the most popular Luchador of all time. When you’re in Mexico with Rey Mysterio, it’s like walking around in England with The Beatles. Everybody knows who Rey Mysterio is.”
