We’ve all watched Rey Mysterio’s epic match, but what other notable matches has he won? Here are some of my personal favorites: Shawn Michaels vs. Rey Mysterio, John Cena vs. Rey Mysterio, Konnan vs. Rey Mysterio, and Kurt Angle vs. Kurt Angle.
Shawn Michaels vs. Rey Mysterio
Rey Mysterio and Shawn Michaels faced battle on Smackdown last night. They had previously met on Raw when Mysterio was mourning Eddie Guerrero’s death. While the battle was promoted as the first on Smackdown, it was a back-and-forth affair with excellent moments for both high-flyers. Michaels, of course, was a forerunner in the WWE’s high-flying style, and his match with Shawn was a fitting tribute.
After his victory over HBK, Rey Mysterio reflected on Eddie Guerrero, who had become a popular face in the United States. His ring performances were amazing, and spectators adored him. After that, he spoke about Michaels’ gesture toward him after Eddie’s death. After the match, the two men hugged each other, a sentimental moment in WWE history.
John Cena vs. Rey Mysterio
One of the best matches in WWE history is Rey Mysterio vs. John Cena. The fight took place at the RBC Center in Raleigh, North Carolina, which has since been renamed the PNC Arena. Mysterio won their first match by submission, but it was not without drama. Y2J ripped Rey’s mask off at one point, causing a distraction for Mysterio and a near-fall for John Cena. After a brief exchange of blows, Mysterio slammed his opponent’s head into the floor, nearly knocking him out. Edge also tossed Mysterio outside the ring, where Mysterio slammed him.
Because Mysterio was the smaller man, he avoided being eliminated by monsters such as Angle and Big Show. His ring wrath lasted more than a year, and he defeated Randy Orton, Triple H, and Kane to win many belts. Mysterio has defeated numerous legendary wrestling legends, including John Cena.
Kurt Angle vs. Rey Mysterio
Rey Mysterio vs. Kurk Angle is one of the most famous matches in WWE history. On a poor program, the old enemies met for the first time in September, and their match was quite entertaining. The Angle used shortcuts, and a chair was thrown into the ring to win. Angle regained his composure later in the match, but it quickly degraded into spot-heavy action with repeated finisher kick-outs.
There were numerous significant matches between the two. The first was Angle’s victory against Mysterio at SummerSlam 2002, which earned the match the Wrestling Observer Award. On the other hand, Angle died of heart failure the following year. The Royal Rumble was won by Rey Mysterio, who dedicated the victory to his late buddy Eddie Guerrero. Then, at WrestleMania 22, he won the World Heavyweight Championship.
During the match, Kurt Angle suffered a neck injury. He announced his retirement from the sport following the match. He had been battling for two decades and had won numerous championships. On the other hand, Angle won the WWE title by defeating Austin Aries in his most recent encounter. The encounter was contentious, and the supporters dubbed it a “Farewell Tour.”
Konnan vs. Rey Mysterio
Rey Mysterio was the first Superstar to enter the cage in a nearly 30-minute match. He defeated Rob Van Dam and Triple H while avoiding the elimination of monsters like Big Show and Kane. The match was a highlight for Mysterio, the tiniest man in the ring. The triumph of Mysterio over Randy Orton was particularly noteworthy in this match.
Rey was seated on a table sandwiched between the guardrail and the ring apron. He tried to do a back elbow cartwheel but was caught by Eddy. Eddie eventually delivered a side suplex to put Rey down. This bout had a lot of high points and demonstrated how to employ flippy wrestling in today’s society.
