Rey Mysterio


Rey Mysterio is considered by many to be the greatest luchador in wrestling history. Rey Mysterio is

known for his trademark 619 manoeuvre and for inspiring countless ‘smaller’ athletes to succeed in

the land of giants.


After an independent career in Mexico, Rey Mysterio came to ECW in 1995. He made a name for

himself, feuding with the likes of Psicosis and Juventud Guerrera. However, he could soon move to

WCW, at the height of the Monday Night Wars.


Rey Mysterio quickly became a part of WCW’s Cruiserweight Division and went on to feud with the

likes of Eddie Guerrero, Dean Malenko and Chris Jericho. He won multiple Tag Team Championships

and also Cruiserweight Championships. Rey Mysterio was unmasked during his time in WCW. He has

spoken about how much he disliked this angle, because of what the mask represents to a luchador.


While WWE has always known to favour the larger guys, Rey Mysterio has had a career in the

company that few can boast of. While Rey Mysterio was known as Rey Mysterio Jr. outside WWE,

the Jr. bit was dropped for WWE. He has had memorable feuds with the likes of Kurt Angle, Randy

Orton, Shawn Michaels and Cody Rhodes. In his WWE career, not only has he won the World

Heavyweight Championship and the WWE Championship, he has also won the 2006 Royal Rumble.

Lucha Underground

Rey Mysterio took some time off from WWE in 2015 and went on to work for the independents. He

was in the second and third seasons of the show. Rey Mysterio even won the Trios Championship

with Prince Puma and Dragon Azteca Jr.

Return to WWE

Rey Mysterio made a comeback to WWE in 2018, on SmackDown 1000. Rey Mysterio had a heated

feud with Randy Orton since then, two men who are no strangers to one another. The feud

culminated in a chairs match at WWE TLC.
