Angelico says that the Mexican style of wrestling is surely fitting in with American wrestling fans.

The former “Lucha Undergound” trios champion says fans are into it thanks to all of the action a three-on-three provides.
Angelico joined The Roman Show for an interview and voiced his opinion.
“It's more difficult in some ways and fun in some ways,” he said. “I look at it as a plus. Instead of having four, you have six wrestlers. More activity comes out of six than four people. It’s non-stop action.”
The South African also shared his experience training professional wrestling in his native country. He trained at a company where WWE Hall of Famer Booker T. played a role.
“I don’t know how much a role he had. He was never there. They had the same facility he had in America,” he said. “It was like a sister school. It was open for six months. Wrestling is not as popular there like in America. It didn’t’ last long.”
He added, “You can get to a certain level, but if you want to kick it up to another level, you need to get more experience with people who have more than you.”
The AAA star also shared his experience training with Japanese legendary wrestler Ultimo Dragon.
“That was amazing,” he said. “I met him in a European tour. We trained and lived in a dojo. At midnight we would get in the ring. He wasn’t too much involved in the training. He gave real advice. He wouldn’t get in the ring, but he watched us from the side.”
