On teaming with with his brother, Alberto Del Rio, for the first time:
“I’m really, really excited about this,” Montenegro said, “and I can’t wait. Even training, I never did something like this, a tag team with him, but I think everything is going to be very good, because we’re brothers. We know each other.”

On learning from his brother and his father's opinion:
“My dad loved it,” Montenegro said. “In Mexico, it’s a good business, but here it’s bigger, and it’s a bigger opportunity for me. My dad said in the future if something happens, ‘you’ll have the background working in the states, and it’ll be easier for you to work in Japan, Europe and even in Mexico. My dad likes that I’m following in the steps of my brother. My brother followed in the steps of my dad, and I’m following in the steps of my brother."
