Former WWE Superstar Kalisto recently spoke to Lucha Libre Online. The former 205 Live Superstar discussed several topics during the interview, including talks of a potential revival of the Latino World Order faction.

The LWO was part of WCW back in the late 90s/early 2000s and featured Eddie Guerrero, Rey Mysterio Jr, Juventud Guerrera and Psychosis, among others.

Kalisto revealed during the interview with Lucha Libre that WWE was actually looking at bringing back the faction for modern-day WWE.

Kalisto talks the Latino World Order

“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,” Kalisto began.

“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,” Kalisto continued. “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”, the former WWE Superstar would conclude.

The top current latino influenced faction is based in NXT, Legado el Phantasma featuring Santos Escobar, Raul Mendoza and Joaquin Wilde.
