Rey Mysterio: Bio

Rey Mysterio

He stands only 5-foot-6 and barely weighs 175 pounds, but a lack of size hasn’t stop the incomparable Rey Mysterio from achieving giant dreams in WWE including capturing the WWE Championship, two World Heavyweight Championships, two Intercontinental Titles, three United States Titles, five Tag Team Titles, three WWE Cruiserweight Titles, or outlasting 29 other Superstars to win the Royal Rumble as the No. 2 entrant. Whether he is 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 the ring.

Trained in the proud Mexican tradition of lucha libre before he was even old enough to drive, Rey Mysterio adopted his ring name in tribute to his uncle and hid his face under a mask as lucha custom dictates. In a world of hooded highflyers, the exhilarating Mysterio stood out enough to earn the attention of ECW and WCW, where his thrilling bouts with such rivals as Eddie Guerrero and Psicosis became the stuff of legend among sports-entertainment fans. His greatest successes, however, were realized after joining WWE in 2002.

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.

After taking a sabbatical from WWE, Mysterio made his jaw-dropping return in the 2018 Royal Rumble Match. He hasn't missed a beat since as he reclaimed the United States Title in 2019 and added several thrilling matches to his already incredible resume.  Along the way, Rey achieved a dream when he formed a tag team with his son Dominik. Together, they would become the first father/son tandem to win the SmackDown Tag Team Titles! That dream, however, became a nightmare when Dominik turned on his dad and joined the vitriolic Judgment Day. Mysterio was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2023, one night before he defeated his son at WrestleMania.

Mysterio went on to align with Legado del Fantasma and reform The LWO, later adding the returning Carlito to the fold. With The LWO by his side, Mysterio captured the United States Championship for the third time.

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.
