In honor of The Rock’s newest show, “The Hero,” WWE.com took a look at superstars over the year that define who a hero is. Of course, our boy Rey Mysterio was featured as he sure is a heroic icon! WWE.Com posted:
Reminiscent of the masked guardians that grace the covers of your favorite comic books, Rey Mysterio lives by a strict moral code that drives him to battle the forces of evil. Even when seemingly outmatched by larger opponents, including the likes of Batista, Kane and even Big Show, The Master of the 619 has never backed down, dazzling the WWE Universe with his aerial offense in the process.
In one of his most miraculous feats, The Ultimate Underdog entered at No. 2 in the 2006 Royal Rumble Match, outlasting 29 other Superstars to win the bout and go on to contend for the World Heavyweight Championship in a Triple Threat Match at WrestleMania 22. Facing both Randy Orton and Kurt Angle, Mysterio would overcome the odds to claim his first World Championship on The Grandest Stage of Them All.
Thanks to an indestructible connection with the WWE Universe, Mysterio’s incredible feats of heroism in the face of adversity have cemented the highflier as one of the most beloved Superstars of all time.
