Konnan on Lucha Underground
Konnan recently did an interview with Marc Madison where he goes into breaking into Wrestling, AAA, Eddie Guerrero, Super Astro, Rey Misterio Sr., ECW, and Lucha Undergound. If you’re a fan of Lucha Libre, this is a great read. It’s incredible because you know what Rey Mysterio and Juventud and Psychosis and all those guys did, Hector Garza did back in 1997 in WCW to me was the forbearer of what we are seeing here today in Lucha Underground, fifteen years later. This is what happened and the most beautiful part for me is when I came to WCW and I talked to Kevin Sullivan and Eric Bischoff about bringing in Luchadores it was an all Mexican thing. They were all Mexicans and when you look at Lucha Underground you have Puerto Ricans, Blacks, and White Boys you’ve got everybody now doing Lucha Libre. That is so beautiful to me. The thing is Chris DeJoseph Eric Van Wagenen, John Fogelman, the guys that run the show, I don’t think they have ever done anything Lucha related and they aren’t latino, which was a huge concern for me. But unlike, Bischoff, Dixie, Jarrett and Vince, they have a profound respect and pride in the Mexico heritage and lucha libre and they are very open minded and great to work with plus I would be remiss if I did not thank the behind the scene latinos who support this 100% Dorian Roldan, Antonio Cue and Alex Garcia.”
