Fuego Del Sol: Cody Rhodes Wanted To Be Fuego II To Stay In Ring Shape, Felt He Was Doing Too Many Promos

Fuego Del Sol reflects on Too Fast Too Fuego.

At the end of 2021, Fuego Del Sol's long lost brother Fuego II showed up on AEW Dark to team with Fuego. The two brothers, known as Too Fast Too Fuego, ran through the competition, amassing a 4-0 record.

Unfortunately, Fuego II randomly disappeared at the beginning of 2022.

Speaking to Jeremy Lambert & Joel Pearl on In The Weeds, Fuego was asked about the whereabouts of Fuego II.

"People love to point out the similarities (of Fuego and Cody Rhodes). It just sucks because Fuego II went missing the same time Cody jumped ship and left us all. Missing, presumed dead, at this point. The more the I think about it, I don't want to fight back tears. What a fun little thing while it lasted. It was only four matches, but it took the world by storm. It was really just a way for Fuego II to stay in ring shape. He felt like he was cutting too many promos on TV. It was great for me because it guaranteed me to be at TV every week. When Cody leaves, I don't have that guarantee to be at TV every week, it slowly hurt my standing within AEW," he said.

Cody left AEW at the start of 2022, returning to WWE at WrestleMania 38.

Fuego departed AEW in June 2023.
