Rey Mysterio Makes An Appearance At WWE’s Royal Rumble And Fans Lose It

Every year World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) hosts their Royal Rumble, a mega brawl where 30 wrestlers, well, rumble, until one is left standing. It starts with two fighters, then every minute another is added to the ring. Wrestlers are eliminated by being tossed out of the ring over the top rope.

This is one of WWE’s biggest events and this year there was a very special surprise appearance.

Oscar Gutierrez, commonly known as Rey Mysterio, became most popular during his time in the WWE in the early 2000’s. He’s an icon in wrestling and within the Latino community thanks to his skills, Lucha Libre mask, and the pride he showed for his Mexican heritage and hometown San Diego. Although Mysterio is short compared to other wrestlers, he is fast on his feet and known for his popular wrestling move called the “619,” which is the area code of his hometown.

Mysterio fans across the Internet were immediately taken back to their childhood as they saw the icon make his return to the ring.

I was so shook as soon as I heard his theme song being played at the match.

After the match, Mysterio talked about how blessed he felt to be back on the WWE ring, even if it was just for one night.

After hearing the crowd’s loud cheers, Mysterio said, “I’m truly blessed to come back and to realize that the fans don’t forget about you.”

And as a former Mysterio fan, I can say that I’ll never forget his Lucha Libre mask, unapologetic Mexican pride, and all those times I attempted the “619” on my brothers growing up.

It was nice seeing you on the ring again, Mysterio!
