Rey Mysterio Speaks On Lucha Underground’s Schedule And Chris Jericho

v
Rey Mysterio spoke with SI.com to promote Lucha Underground. Here are the highlights.

On Lucha Underground’s schedule:

“The schedule works perfect for me,” said Mysterio. “I can pick and choose right now the amount of days I get to work throughout the year. Keep in mind that one season of Lucha Underground is forty episodes–but I’m not necessarily wrestling on all forty of those episodes, so we’re talking even less days. And that, to me, is a blessing.

“As you get older, your body doesn’t hold up as much. My body isn’t even as good as it was in my 30’s, and I felt like I was in my prime then, but I can still go and still entertain the fans like I want to.”

On Chris Jericho:

“I’m amazed by Chris–and not only with his wrestling,” said Mysterio. “He’s all over the place. He has his podcast, he has his rock band, and that’s the Jericho I’ve always known. I’ve got big props for what he’s doing.”

On Lucha Underground’s product:

“Lucha Underground is the evolution of wrestling,” said Mysterio. “It’s high style, high flying, fast-paced hybrid style wrestling, and we’re actually paying homage to lucha libre for the first time. The feel that it has with character development and backstage vignettes is very cinematic. If you thought you’d seen it all in wrestling, check again.”
