Kalisto was off television at the end of 2019 due to a shoulder injury, but he returned in August 2020 in the best shape of his career.
Many took notice of Kalisto's new body, including the WWE Chairman himself.
"Let me tell you the first reaction of Vince McMahon, I call him boss when he saw me back. I had finished doing a segment for the 24/7 Title and entered Vince’s office and there was a big meeting and I did not know there was a meeting, but I still went, 'Nah, I’m going to get in.' There was a huge table and everyone was there, including Shane (McMahon), and I was like 'Hey boss! How are you doing?' because we had a good relationship. After I walked in, Vince immediately said this, 'Holy shit! You’re fucking ripped!' My exact words after that were, 'This is my I don’t give a fuck-Body.' I was ready and to roll and he continued to tell me that I looked really good. We had another meeting later and I accomplished what I wanted to do," he said.
Unfortunately, McMahon didn't think too much of Kalisto's body as Kalisto was released on April 15.
He recently filed to trademark "Samuray del Sol" for merchandising purposes. Kalisto is scheduled to compete on July 31 on the same card as Andrade El Idolo vs. Alberto Del Rio.
