During his interview with Lucha Libre Online, Kalisto spoke on whether the L.W.O. gimmick was ever pitched in the WWE. Here’s what he had to say:
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.
