Legendary masked luchador and former “Lucha Underground” wrestler Blue Demon Jr. was interviewed by Rodolfo Roman of The Roman Show during CCW’s Cinco de Mayo card on Friday, May 5 at COYO Taco in Wynwood-Miami.
Blue Demon Jr. dicsussed working with NWA’s new owner Billy Corgan, Mexican promotion AAA, teaching Pentagon Jr, and his thoughts on Alberto Del Rio. He also spoke about his experience at “Lucha Underground.”
“It was a great experience,” he said in Spanish. “We didn’t finish on good note. There were many things that remained. The writers left a lot on the table, and they focused on other things. If you look at ‘Lucha Underground,’ it’s no longer Mexican lucha libre, which what was intended to be. Since it wasn’t like that, I left.”
The former NWA champion said he will soon be talking to the new owner of the company, Smashing Pumpkins singer Billy Corgan.
“I think you might see me in NWA,” he said. “I have a stake in NWA Mexico. I need to speak with the owner to see if we continue with our alliance, and we’ll let you know the good news.”
He also talked about lucha superstars and brothers Pentagon Jr. and Fenix as well as Alberto Del Rio.
“Pentagon and Rey Fenix were my students,” Blue Demon Jr. said. “I can tell you Alberto Del Rio is a great wrestler since the time he was Dos Caras Jr. He went to WWE. He took advantage, and now he is now ready to show what he did in WWE to the world.”
Blue Demon Jr. was one of the originals of the Mexican promotion AAA. He shared his thoughts about the company.
“AAA has been controversial,” he said. “In whatever promotion I am, I try to close my cycle and say my thanks, even if I leave with problems. I don’t like to talk about the problems. The relationship you have with a promotion should be private. But it comes to the point were the talent isn’t happy or information is being circulated that isn’t good, and then the rumors start. I can tell you it is controversial. It is the lead promotion in Mexico just like CMLL. Everyone has their following. “
Hear him talk about facing Chavo Guerrero, training Pentagon Jr. and more.
