Fuego Del Sol On Rivalry With QT Marshall: We Built It Up For Months And A Match Wasn’t Ever Supposed To Happen

Fuego Del Sol has become quite the internet wrestling darling over the past few months.
“The match with QT Marshall. Not for the moves but more for the story. Everything we did was technically sound but that didn’t matter as much as the whole build up. For months we built up a match that was never supposed to happen. It showcases my personality and QT’s asshole side so much so that it is launch his program with Cody. We were planning to do the match at the factory because we thought AEW had no interest in booking it, until Tony heard about the plan and said it had to be on dark! It meant so much to me because people cared. I hadn’t won a match in AEW and theoretically they had no reason to but we made them. We filmed that match for dark at 2 AM after we had already taped 20 dark matches and QT and I both had already wrestled once that night, the extras and wrestlers were all tired but when the match happened they woke up, the signed wrestlers all came out to watch, so many of my peers cared and then the match was really good. So I feel like it delivered in every way possible… except that I loss… rematch maybe? Regardless it’s my favorite because I don’t think I ever had the opportunity to tell a long term story in wrestling and I realized those were the stories I want to tell!”
