Rey Mysterio, Jr. has been one of the most entertaining lucha-libre wrestlers this company has ever seen. Mysterio has been an exciting performer to watch way before his debut in WWE, as he made his move from ECW to WCW.
Eddie Guerrero and Mysterio were pretty much the first professional wrestlers to introduce World Championship Wrestler to the lucha-libre style of professional wrestling. Full of high flying/quick maneuvers, both of these men performed more matches together than they have with any other opponent.
Now Mysterio hasn’t made a television appearance for the WWE in a long time. He’s been battling countless knee injuries and it’s now starting to catch up with his age. He hasn’t necessarily been the same wrestler he once was, but he was still a top performer when the spotlight was on him.
It would have been nice to see Mysterio return at some point during this whole ‘Good for business’ deal with Triple H/Randy Orton and Daniel Bryan thing plays out. Triple H doesn’t see a small guy like Bryan being the WWE Champion/face of the WWE, but Mysterio held both the WWE Championship and World Heavyweight Championship in his career.
Yeah he only held the WWE Championship for maybe a total of 15 minutes because John Cena had to take it from him, but he was still champion regardless. I thought he could play a small role in this, as he did pinned Randy Orton in a Triple Threat match at WrestleMania 22.
Now when it comes to his recent involvement, Mysterio has been billed for a ‘one night only’ return during a WWE Live house show on Saturday at the State Farm Arena in Hidalgo, Texas.
Hopefully this opens up a shot at him to get back on live television as it could be based on his performance.
