Ultimo Dragon Explains Why His WWE Stint Was Short

Former WWE star Ultimo Dragon was interviewed by Steve Fall’s Ten Count this week where he spoke about a wide range of topics. Here are the highlights: 

Why his WWE stint was short:

“WWE wanted to change his image and look and remove who he was and remove who he was, so he requested to leave because he wanted to maintain who he was. He stayed. There were no bad terms, but he wanted to be who he was and did not want to change who he was.”

Whether WWE wanted to remove his mask:

“Yes, they wanted to take his mask off. He wasn’t against the idea, but they had a lot of ideas for him to remove his mask. They just figured it would be something that would be better for them and him. He was open to it, but there wasn’t something really there for it.

“What they said was, being that Rey Mysterio was so popular, they didn’t see a need to have two masked wrestlers, so they wanted to keep Mysterio as the only mask and then remove him from being masked, and he says he understands. He said he understands that as a promoter, he understands why and I agree with them, but it wasn’t what I wanted to do.”

“In the end, it’s their company and they have their own decisions as to how they want to make it work. I will follow suit. I’m their employee, they’re my employer, so I’ll do what they need me to do and that’s how every wrestler should be. Listen to what the boss wants and and do. Obviously if it doesn’t work for you, then you can discuss, but in the end, without the boss you know, then there’s no work and there’s no wrestlers.”
