In case you’ve been living under a rock, there’s an ongoing situation with Rey Mysterio and WWE wherein Vince McMahon has essentially held the former world champion captive for the next year. Rey’s contract was technically set to expire earlier this year, and according to reports there was a handshake agreement in place with Triple H that he would not be renewing his deal. However, because he missed over a year of ring time due to injuries over the course of his last run, McMahon – or more likely, a team of different WWE executives – decided to exploit a small loophole in Mysterio’s contact that basically allows the company to auto-renew his deal for another year, to make up for those absences.
This situation has caused a lot of drama and animosity between both sides, with several notable wrestlers banding together online, trying to get social media to “FreeREY”.
You can make up your own mind about the Rey Mysterio situation, but while we await more information on his future, let’s take a look at some of the best matches from one of the greatest professional wrestlers in history. The matches that make up a Hall of Fame-worthy career, of a man who has won three world titles, the Royal Rumble match, eight Cruiserweight titles, eight tag team titles, two Intercontinental titles, and successfully defended his mask ten times over a twenty-five-year career.
