Rey Mysterio

WWE Hall of Fame Rey Mysterio

On the March 10th edition of SmackDown, WWE announced the legendary Rey Mysterio will headline the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2023.

Mysterio is one of the best Luchadores in wrestling history. His ground-breaking performances in ECW, WCW, and WWE have inspired a whole generation of wrestlers.

His career has been stacked with amazing feats and astounding accomplishments. He won the Royal Rumble 2006 before capturing the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 22. Mysterio has also held multiple tag team, Intercontinental and United States titles throughout his WWE career.

In 2015, Mysterio left WWE after 13 years with the company. During this time, he went and performed all over the world on the independent scene.

He would work for NJPW, where he teamed with Jushin Thunder Liger and challenged for the AAA Mega Championship at Verano De Escandalo. He also teamed with Bandido and Rey Fenix against the Young Bucks and Kota Ibushi at the event that was the catalyst for AEW, All In.

Mysterio made a shocking return to WWE in 2018 at the Royal Rumble and in 2021 became the first-ever father-and-son Tag Team Champion in WWE history.

The Great MutaWWE Hall of Fame The Great Muta

On The Bump, two-time Hall of Famer Ric Flair confirmed the Great Muta would join Rey Mysterion in the Class of 2023.

Earlier this year the legendary Japanese star retired after nearly four decades of competition. Muto competed in his final match against former IWGP Heavyweight and Intercontinental Champion Tetsuya Naito at NOAH’s Keiji Muto Grand Final Pro-Wrestling “Last Love”. The special event took place on Tuesday 21st February at the hallowed Tokyo Dome.

The Great Muta also known as Keiji Muto is widely regarded as one of the greatest wrestlers of all time. He began his wrestling career in New Japan Pro Wrestling but he became one of the first Japanese stars to achieve international fame when he spent a year in WCW between 1989 and 1990.

During his time in the company, he was known as The Great Muta and captured the NWA World Television Title from Sting before going on to challenge Ric Flair several times for the NWA World Heavyweight Championship.

The Great Muta went on to capture that title from compatriot Masahiro Chono in early 1993 before losing the gold to Barry Windham at WCW’s SuperBrawl III show in February of the same year.

Muto held the IWGP Heavyweight Championship in New Japan Pro Wrestling, the All Japan Triple Crown Heavyweight Title three times as well as NOAH’s GHC Heavyweight Championship in addition to countless other accolades that make him one of the most decorated Japanese wrestlers in history.

His influence in wrestling has also been seen outside of the ring as he has served as President of All Japan Pro Wrestling and founded the Wrestle-1 promotion in 2013 when AJPW suffered an exodus of stars following Muto’s departure.

Andy Kaufman was a groundbreaking entertainer, comedian and performance artist. After working his way up from small comedy clubs in the 1970s he rose to fame on Saturday Night Live and then as Latka Gravas on the hit television show Taxi. However, it is his involvement in professional wrestling is still fondly remembered by fans to this day.

In the early 1980s, Kaufman entered the world of professional wrestling. He declared himself the Inter-Gender Wrestling Champion of the World. The star offered $1,000 to any woman who could pin him to the mat. This sparked a feud with Jerry Lawler in the Continental Wrestling Association in Memphis, Tennessee.

During the legendary feud, both men convinced the watching world that their feud was genuine, with Lawler slapping Kaufman in front of a shocked live audience on Late Night With David Letterman in 1982.

Kaufman had appeared on the show in a neck brace, claiming that Lawler had broken his neck with a Piledriver. Despite their on-screen rivalry, Kaufman and Lawler were good friends.

Kaufman passed away on May 16th, 1984, aged just 35 due to lung cancer. Kaufman’s life was immortalised in the 1999 movie Man on the Moon, with the actor played by Jim Carey. Kaufman’s old friend and wrestling rival Lawler appeared in the movie as himself.
