It has been reported that WWE has now scrapped their planned push for Kalisto because he is "too short" for what they had in mind.
The Lucha Dragons star has already won a Slammy in his debut year on the main roster after what was a fantastic spot from the top of the ladder at TLC.
The exciting tag team still came up short that night despite this, just as they did on Smackdown this past week when they faced The New Day for the Tag Team Championships.

NEW MEXICAN STAR?
It was reported that WWE wanted someone with Alberto Del Rio's physique and Rey Mysterio's merchandise sales and sadly that isn't Kalisto, which could be the main reason that Del Rio was brought back.
It was thought that when The Lucha Dragons did finally split that Kalisto would be the bigger star given that he has an added edge in the ring over Sin Cara, who is mostly known for his botch style.
Instead, it seems that WWE may be keeping the team together for a while longer since they current have nothing for the 170-pound superstar going forward. The Human Pinball has set WWE alight since his debut on the main roster along with Sin Cara a few months ago and it has never seemed like his size has caused him any problems.
NEVER DOUBT THE SMALL GUYS
Rey Mysterio won the World Heavyweight Championship when he weighed just 175 pounds so there is no reason why Kalisto couldn't go down the same path.
People like Daniel Bryan, Eddie Guerrero and CM Punk have taught WWE that they should never judge a superstar by the size that they are. The WWE Universe likes to support an underdog and Kalisto would be the perfect underdog in a World Title feud.
The fans are very much behind Kalisto right now and if WWE uses him effectively over the next year then there is no reason why he couldn't be a front runner for a World Title opportunity in a year's time.
When Kalisto defeated Ryback a few weeks ago as part of the WWE World Heavyweight Championship tournament, it looked like WWE were set to give him a decent run, but now it's anyone's guess as to whether or not the company will allow him to become a top superstar.
