Ultimo Dragon Says It Was An Honor To Work Under Vince McMahon

Pro wrestling legend and top DRAGON GATE Star Ultimo Dragon recently spoke with Sports Illustrated on a number of topics such as the springboard moonsault being named after him.

Ultimo Dragon said:

“I remember when it was named the Asai Moonsault when I was in WCW. I am very honored because there are only three moves named after Japanese wrestlers—[Antonio] Inoki’s enzuigiri, the [Yoshiaki] Fujiwara armbar, and the Asai Moonsault.”

Ultimo Dragon also spoke about how it was an honor to work under Vince McMahon even though he did not give him many opportunities.

Ultimo Dragon said:

“A lot of people always tell me [I should go back with Levesque in charge], but to me, it was an honor to work under McMahon. Even though he did not give me many opportunities, I learned a lot backstage about the business. I am too old to work for the WWE now.”

Ultimo Dragon then spoke about he didn’t want to become a mask man early in his wrestling career, but he realized that he is the only Japanese wrestler who became a mask man in Mexico.

Ultimo Dragon said:

“At that time, I didn’t understand many things and I didn’t want to become a mask man. After many years, I realized that I am the only Japanese wrestler who became a mask man in Mexico, so it is something very unique and special.”
