Standing only 5-foot-6 and weighing barely 175 pounds, a lack of size did not stop the incomparable Rey Mysterio from achieving giant dreams. As a professional wrestler, Rey Mysterio has captured the WWE Championship and outlasted 30 Superstars to win the Royal Rumble. Whether he was standing up to a dangerous giant like Kane or flying down from the top of a steel cage, The Ultimate Underdog is known for refusing to be intimidated inside ring.
First establishing himself in the cruiserweight and tag team divisions, the Mexican Superstar soon proved that size doesn’t matter when he beat the odds to win the Royal Rumble Match in 2006. From there, Mysterio accomplished the inconceivable when he won the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 22, becoming the smallest Superstar ever to hold that title.
Mysterio’s accomplishments did not end there. At Fatal 4-Way 2010, the high-flyer captured his second World Heavyweight Championship against Big Show, CM Punk and Jack Swagger. In July 2011 on Raw, Mysterio scored his first WWE Championship with an emotional win over The Miz. The reign was short-lived, however, as he lost the coveted title that same night when he went one-on-one with fellow fan favorite John Cena.
On May 12 you can join celebrity wrestler Rey Mysterio and WWE World Champions for an action-packed night of Lucha Libre Wrestling at Sycuan Casino’s intimate entertainment venue, Sycuan Live & Up Close. Rey Mysterio’s Lucha Libre Mayhem lineup features several well-known stars including Rey Mysterio, John Morrisson, Taya, Brian Cage and many more.
With his revolutionary style, Mysterio overcame the odds to enjoy a championship career that is respected by fellow Superstars and the WWE Universe alike, making him one of the most well-known and beloved competitors of all time!
