Rey Mysterio Says It Was An “Honour” To Bring Bad Bunny Into The LWO

Rey Mysterio

Rey Mysterio is widely considered one of the best professional wrestlers in modern times. He’s also one of a very small handful to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame and still continue wrestling consistently afterwards.

But despite all his praise and accolades, he’s still a humble man at heart and he knows another big star when he sees one. That’s why he was so happy to let Bad Bunny join the Latino World Order.

Although Rey Mysterio won’t be in a match of his own at Backlash later today, he will be involved in a match as Zelina Vega’s second when she challenges Rhea Ripley for the SmackDown Women’s Championship.

And because he will be returning to Puerto Rico, Rey Mysterio took the opportunity to reflect on his experiences in that building and being among its people.

“Every time I’ve been to Puerto Rico, I feel like I’m at home. 2001 was my first time visiting this beautiful island, and the crowd was just incredible. I came back maybe three times after that, and now it’s been almost two and a half years since I’ve returned, but it’s like I never left.

The connection we have here is solid. The fact that, not only is it solid, but what we represent in the LWO, every hard-working Latino around the world, they see that. They feel it, and they’re with us 1000%”

Additionally, he sees that same passion in Bad Bunny, which is why he let the artist join the Latino World Order despite not being a wrestler.

“We feel privileged and honored for Bad Bunny to receive the shirt, put it on gracefully, and represent what we represent, the Latinos. It’s incredible. I don’t think Bad Bunny needed superpowers for tomorrow because he will take Damian Priest down. I know it, I’ve seen him train.

He works hard and he’s dedicated. He’s been a fan since he’s a kid. But if that LWO shirt brings him some type of superpower, it would be incredible, man. The representation is to the fullest right now for all the Latinos.”
