Last Word on Pro Wrestling had a chance to talk with Gringo Loco about his history in the wrestling industry.

LWOPW: Who was your favorite wrestler growing up and who’s your dream opponent, past or present?

“Tajiri was my favorite wrestler growing up and is my “past” dream opponent. Volador Jr was my modern dream opponent but the match took place in 2019.”

LWOPW: What would you say is your greatest contribution so far in pro wrestling?

“Getting the chance to bring more and more Lucha Libre talent here to the USA and showcasing them.”

LWOPW: Do you have any advice for anyone wanting to get into the business?

“If you really have the drive and passion to be a professional wrestler, the best advice I could give is that when the going gets tough, don’t quit. You never get the time back that you lose when decide to quit wrestling for a while.”

LWOPW: If you could change one thing about the current landscape of wrestling, what would it be?

“I wouldn’t change anything.”

LWOPW: Did you have any doubts about wanting to become a professional wrestler and how did you overcome those doubts?

“I had doubts of course. Wasn’t the easiest start for me, felt like I didn’t belong and wasn’t accepted into the US independent scene in the beginning because I was a Lucha guy and had a different style than everyone else. I overcame those doubts by becoming one of the best bases in the business and helping some of the best flyers look really good.”
