Now, it appears he will be sticking in the family as it was made public through a press conference with himself, and his two brothers, Dragon Lee and RUSH that his official name will be Dralistico and he is now the newest member of the LFI faction.

“I knew that when I left CMLL, the company would pick someone to replace me in that role, and we all saw Mistico returned to his character," said Dralistico. “I am very happy and very thankful that our relationship ended on good terms and they allowed me to fly and accomplish my dreams, which was always the objective. I am on more than good terms with CMLL, but it was a cycle that we had to close and we will move forward.”

He added, “They did not take the character off me. This was a decision that was well thought for months with my brothers, and I spoke with Mr. Lutheroth (the owner of CMLL) about how I wanted to achieve new goals and face new challenges. We know that there are limitations in a company, there are rules that you need to go by that may not be aligned with what you want, especially when there are no projects or stuff to do on the short-term and long-term basis for you. I am yet to reach the age of 30 and I feel that I have the talent and the physical preparation to thrive, especially wrestling anywhere against any wrestler.

“Mistico did not reach out to me, but there are no hard feelings there. We were work partners in CMLL and every person seeks their own dreams. All I can say is that I hope it goes well for him and I wish him all the success possible. He has a lot of talent and I hope CMLL goes up from here.”

When asked about bringing another one of his brothers into the fold of LFI, RUSH stated that this was the completion of the family.

“I want everyone from Mexico, Japan, United States, Puerto Rico, and all over the world to be witnesses of this. This shirt is for the only wrestler that was missing in the family. My brother, Dralistico, will be in charge of burying the past, as from this moment on, I welcome you to LFI.”

Currently, RUSH is sidelined after emergency knee surgery and there was no indication during his press conference whether or not this latest iteration of LFI would be showing up in Ring of Honor at any point in the near future.
