Salida del Sol
2015 ‘OMG!’ Shocking Moment of the Year Slammy Award winner; United States Champion
Blink and you’ll miss Kalisto, a hybrid Superstar who has always felt destined for big things. Born in Chicago, but raised in Mexico City, this luchador has been both a student and innovator of sports-entertainment since the first time he laced up his boots.
Known for his innovative speed and agility, Kalisto conquered Mexico before transporting his skills to the United States and finding a footing in NXT. “The King of Flight” eventually spread his wings in the tag team division, uniting with veteran mask Sin Cara under the name of The Lucha Dragons. They brought, appropriately enough, the heat, upending The Ascension to cut short their record-setting NXT Tag Team Championship run.
The astonishment continued when The Dragons made their way to the main roster, with Kalisto often providing highlight-reel worthy moments each night he competes. Nowhere was this more apparent than when the Superstar captured the United States Title from Alberto Del Rio.
The self-styled Dragon has truly taken flight towards greatness and continues to move closer to WWE lore every time he steps in the ring. What will he do next? Don’t blink or you just might miss it.
