Kalisto Says He Heard Rumors Of The LWO Happening In WWE

Kalisto was no stranger to factions during his time in WWE as he linked up with Gran Metalik & Lince Dorado as the Lucha House Party.

With WWE housing some of the top luchador talent in the world over the years, many fans wondered if the company would ever bring back the Latino World Order given WWE's love of the New World Order and Eddie Guerrero.

In 1998, Eddie Guerrero formed the Latino World Order in WCW. The group took some of the top Mexican talents in the company and made a mockery of the New World Order, but lasted just three months.

Speaking to Lucha Libre Online (translation via Luis Pulido), Kalisto says he heard rumors of the LWO coming to WWE.

“I believe that there was never a moment. It would have been perfect after the picture we took in Saudi Arabia where we had Sin Cara, Humberto, and Cain Velasquez, and that’s my boy right there. I think someone did pitch it at some point, but I was not sure on whether it was only for T-shirts or if there was an agreement in booking the faction, but I constantly heard rumors saying that it was going to happen and I was like 'ok, let’s see what happens.' It did not materialize, but it would have been really cool, especially after my web promos where I threw jabs at Rey and company after I had their blessings to do so. It never happened because creative had their focus on certain people and it was always going to be difficult to fight for airtime on TV," he said.

Earlier this year, Rey Mysterio commented that he believes the LWO would be a success in 2021.

Kalisto was released by WWE in April. You can find his comments on his release by clicking here.
