Kalisto vs. Ariya Daivari is now official for next Tuesday’s WWE 205 Live episode.
Kalisto issued a challenge to Daivari, accusing him of being the one to attack Gran Metalik backstage last week.
Below is video of Daivari talking to Cathy Kelley after the show, and accepting the challenge.
“Kalisto challenged me to a match? It’s very big of Lucha House Party to talk about me behind my back while I’m in the middle of the ring. All I’ve been trying to do for the last couple of weeks is prove to Lince Dorado that he doesn’t need those losers, he doesn’t need that dead weight. Lince Dorado does not need Lucha House Party. So, if Kalisto wants to challenge me to a match, because he thinks I attacked Gran Metalik, great. Grand. Wonderful. I’ll see him next week,” Daivari said.
On a related note, there’s been speculation on WWE separating Dorado from Kalisto and Metalik. Dorado took to Twitter last night and insisted he was not the one who attacked Metalik last week.
Dorado tweeted, “I didn’t do it! I didn’t drop my boy @WWEGranMetalik on @WWE205Live! #luchahouseparty”
