Seth Rollins Raw

Seth Rollins gave thanks to Rey Mysterio at a WWE live event in Monterrey, Mexico.

In the eyes of many, Rey Mysterio helped revolutionise the landscape of professional wrestling and helped change the perception of what the art form could look like inside the ropes.

While Mysterio was far from being the first Luchador, he took Lucha Libre to new heights, starring in ECW and WCW in the 1990s while still in his early 20s. His status has only been solidified through his work in WWE, where he’s won the World Championship three times.

Despite being much closer to the end of his career than the start, Mysterio continues to perform at an incredibly high level, something that hasn’t gone unnoticed by many fans and colleagues, including Seth Rollins.

At a live event on July 23rd, Rollins defeated Dominik Mysterio in the main event to retain his World Heavyweight Championship. After the match, Rollins paid tribute to Rey Mysterio and hailed him as the greatest Luchador in history. In the heartwarming moment, Rollins also found time to throw in a joke about their “Eye for an Eye” Match at Extreme Rules in 2020 before kneeling in front of the star and thanking him.

“We may not have always seen eye-to-eye [crowd laughs] but ladies and gentlemen, this right here is the greatest Luchador of all-time. Let’s hear it for the one and only, give it up for Rey Mysterio!

Thank you for everything you’ve done for me, and everyone else in this business. We love you, you are the best.”
