The following is from WWE.com:

Intercontinental Champion Rey Mysterio recently toured Spain where he invited Cristiano Ronaldo, Raul and their Real Madrid teammates to WWE’s upcoming SmackDown and ECW live event in Madrid on Sept. 24.

"It was an honor to be invited to visit Real Madrid’s training ground and meet Raul, Ronaldo, Kaka and all the other footballers that play for such a successful team,” Mysterio said. “I am looking forward to seeing them again in September when I am back in Madrid and to give them a taste of my own kind of athleticism!”

Real Madrid is a professional club and the most successful team in Spanish football history. They’ve won a record 31 La Liga titles, 17 Spanish Cups, nine European Cups and two UEFA Cups.

"Rey, it is a pleasure to meet you,” Raul told the SmackDown Superstar. “Thank you for the invite to see you in Madrid. My kids love your show.”
