Former Lucha Underground Champion Marty Casaus (Marty “The Moth” Martinez) has explained his current relationship with AEW.
Following a severe back injury, Marty Casaus made his wrestling return on AEW Dark in April. Casaus’ latest match for the company was in May, losing to Matt Sydal on AEW Dark.
Speaking with Wrestling Inc, Casaus recalled Tony Khan praising him following his matches. Revealing that AEW told him they’d give him a call when nearby, Casaus said:
“Right now, they told me when they come near my local area, they’ll give me a call. That’s what that is so far. I have a good relationship with everybody, so I don’t think I have any heat with anybody, but I know they are just transitioning now from the pandemic world to being on the road again. They’ll see where the dice falls once they’re back on the road, and then we’ll see what the future holds for me.
“Tony Khan was always constantly moving like Vince McMahon was when I was doing WWE stuff. He was very hands on. He came up and said ‘great match’ to me every single time. He gave me a little bit of feedback on certain things. I do a thing in Lucha Underground where I pretty much am a serial killer in Lucha Underground.
“I grab people by their mouth and drag them like dead bodies, like a serial killer would, and it was super fun for me and individualistic, but they said, ‘Hey, anything with the mouth is kind of Britt Baker’s thing right now so kind of adjust around that.’ I kind of adjusted a few things.
“I went to a choke thing instead of dragging people by their mouths. A few adjustments but he came up to me after every single match and said, ‘Hey man, good job.’ He came up to me the next day, after two out of the three matches and said, ‘Hey man, great job. It’s good to see you,’ but while he’s doing that, he’s also running and jogging back pedalling to get to work.
“It’s always like, ‘Hey, thanks man. Good job. Thanks for having me. Okay, good seeing you Tony.’ He was very kind to me while I was there and gave me a little bit of feedback for stuff to change. I changed it, and we’ll see what happens in the future with that.”
Casaus has confirmed that he submitted an application for WWE’s SummerSlam week tryouts. He previously appeared for WWE as a promising contestant on Tough Enough in 2011.
