Samuray Del Sol, formerly known as Kalisto was released by WWE in April 2021.

His departure ended an eight-year run with the company which saw him become the United States Champion, Cruiserweight Champion, and NXT Tag Team Champion.

In January 2022, the star revealed that he had suffered a serious health scare in August 2021 and spent time in the hospital.

Speaking in a new interview with Renee Paquette on The Sessions, the star reflected on his health problems, explaining that he initially ignored his symptoms, before finally ending up in the hospital.

“After getting released from WWE, I was like, ‘I’m going to get back on the grind, I’m motivated,’ [COVID] just hit me out of nowhere. I waited two weeks because I didn’t want to pay a damn hospital bill. That was my mistake because I was starting to be delusional. My brain was fried. My wife was sick, but not as sick as me. My fever wouldn’t go down, I was coughing up blood every day for two weeks. I guess I passed out a couple of times and hit my head. I was white. I didn’t tell anybody, not even my parents. They were pissed off,”

Del Sol added that he was in the ER for two and a half months, and his wife feared that he would die.

“I don’t like showing my medical history to the world and I don’t want any sympathy. I’m a private person. I can take care of myself and do this. It scared the shit out of me. In the hospital, they were going to put me in a coma, but my wife said no. ‘He’s not going to come back. He’s going to die.’ My heart stopped beating, they needed to revive me. My heart stopped and kicked back. It was like three times. I was in and out with that. I was super tired and just wanted to sleep.

From what my wife was telling me, it was really bad. I ended up staying in the ER for two and a half months. I was on close watch because my heart kept stopping. It was scary because I was alone. Only a few people knew.”

After leaving WWE, the star appeared as Samuray del Sol on AEW Dynamite in November 2021 teaming with Aero Star. In the match, the pair took on FTR, and Del Sol said he appreciated how much they looked after him. Incredibly, he revealed he was still using an oxygen machine when he took the match.

WWE Miss Out On AEW Star

On April 11th it was reported that Brain Cage had signed a new multi-year deal with AEW. The news comes after it was reported that there were some influential people in WWE were pushing for the company to sign the star.

However, that interest has come to nothing.

It was noted that AEW had worked hard in recent weeks to get the deal over the line.
