In a recent interview with Chris Jericho as part of the Talk Is Jericho podcast, All Elite Wrestling superstar Sonny Kiss discussed several topics, including the origins of his ring name.
“Sonny is the nickname to my real name. My real name is Hassan, yes, very Middle Eastern. Kiss came from, I think it was because I was blowing kisses a lot when I came out to my entrance at the beginning. My dad is partly Middle Eastern and my mom is African American Native American.”
