Fuego del Sol has not been one of the most successful AEW wrestlers when it comes to win-loss record. The undersized underdog often shows heart, but since finally earning his AEW contract, he always seems to lose no matter what. He left AEW earlier this month and it appears The Young Bucks didn’t know he was getting released.
Fuego Del Sol made his way to AEW a couple of years ago and was largely seen as enhancement talent. However, his feud with Miro ultimately helped him secure a contract and become an official member of the AEW roster.
Fuego Del Sol was also out of action due to foot injury and underwent surgery for the same back in March. It was then revealed that he has parted ways with AEW after his contract expired on July 1st.
While speaking with Nick Hausman for Inside The Ropes, Fuego Del Sol talked about his time in AEW and then his eventual departure. Del Son revealed that The Young Bucks didn’t know he was getting released.
“However, I have to turn around and say The Bucks have been phenomenal to me since day one. They treated me like a brother, a wrestler, one of the boys. They never treated me like I was an extra They never acted like they were above me because they were EVPs, they’ve both checked on me since I got hurt. And since I got released, I got messages from both Matt and Nick saying ‘We had no clue we’re so sorry. Hope for you wish the best for you,’ because they were always good to me.
So I’ve had great interactions with everybody at the top, more so The Bucks and Punk, than Kenny [Omega], but Kenny does a lot of stuff with the female division. But anytime I had questions about going to Japan, or what he thought of my matches, he was incredibly nice.
So there’s a lot of talk about the butting heads at the top, but a lot of our top guys really want the best for the industry and help the younger guys out tremendously.”
Fuego Del Sol had some memorable moments during his AEW career, but his time has now come to an end. We will have to wait and see what the future holds for Fuego Del Sol.
