Kalisto has taken to social media to announce his return and share some strong words for Rey Mysterio and his son, Dominik.
Kalisto made his last appearance in WWE on the kick-off show at Survivor Series 2020 when he took part in a battle royal.The WWE draft saw him separated from his former Lucha House Party teammates as Gran Metalik and Lince Dorado headed to Raw while Kalisto stayed put on SmackDown.
“The action! The surprise returns! The comeback! Guys, the comeback! Royal Rumble. That comeback. What is he thinking? What’s next? Oh, wait a minute, wait a minute. You guys aren’t thinking I’m talking about somebody else? No no no no no, the guy I’m talking about is standing right here looking at you.”
“Allow me to reintroduce myself. I’m the 773 Lucha kid. The Aztec Lucha warrior. I am Lucha. I am Kalisto, the greatest luchador of all time, and also in the best shape in my life. You know why? Because I believe in what I say and I believe in what I do.”
The masked superstar continued:
“So, you have the audacity to comment on my pictures and say that Rey is the greatest of all time. You are all brainwashed. See the difference between Rey and I is opportunity. Hey Dominik, I’m sure you’re used to all that, right? Opportunity at the Royal Rumble. That could’ve been me. I could’ve won that Royal Rumble. I could’ve beaten every single superstar in that ring, and you didn’t. You’re weak. Rey, you have a weak son and he has a lot to learn. I know what to do and I know my motivation. So, Rey, it’s time for you to step aside and let the GLOAT take over. I am done sitting on the sidelines.”
The self-proclaimed ‘Greatest Luchador Of All Time’ will have kept a close eye on Dominik Mysterio as he defeated King Corbin on Friday Night SmackDown.
