UPDATE x 2: Although it was reported on Tuesday via Reddit user “MetsFan4Ever” that WWE officials were considering changing NXT star Kalisto’s gimmick to that of a gay hair stylist, WWE sources reached out today and claimed that is not the case, and that Kalisto will not be changing characters at all.
UPDATE: As reported last night here on the website, one of the reasons that WWE had The Lucha Dragons, Sin Cara and Kalisto, drop the NXT Tag-Team Championships recently is because they are contemplating giving Kalisto a new gimmick.
Verified Reddit user MetsFan4Ever noted recently that WWE is looking for a new masked Superstar to take over the void that Rey Mysterio will soon be leaving, however they have recently tried using Kalisto under a new, unmasked gimmick — that of a homosexual hair stylist.
WWE officials were reportedly pleased with Kalisto’s performance as that character and as a result, they are said to be seriously considering having him do that gimmick permanently instead of continuing with his current Kalisto character.
ORIGINAL: WWE insider MetsFan4Ever has dropped a new bit of information, this time about NXT star Kalisto. The Reddit user reports that the Lucha Dragons dropped the NXT Tag Team Titles because creative is considering a new gimmick for Kalisto.
According to him, WWE is trying to find a new Latino star with Rey Mysterio on the way out. Since Sin Cara was more or less a bust, they’re planning to go with Kalisto in the unmasked gimmick of a gay hair stylist.
Kalisto reportedly did very well in the gimmick and officials are seriously considering moving ahead with that gimmick instead of his current one.
Please take this STRICTLY as a RUMOR for now considering the source.
