Rey Mysterio has competed in countless matches throughout his illustrious career so its normal that some of his WWE matches flew under the radar.
2022 will mark Rey Mysterios two decade anniversary with WWE. The Ultimate Underdog has left WWE during that time frame for four years but his contributions to WWE have not gone unnoticed. Mysterio is a three time WWE World Champion and a two time Intercontinental Champion and he has won plenty of other championships throughout his stints in WWE and WCW.Mysterio is not the biggest competitor by any stretch of the imagination but he makes up for his small stature with his in-ring awareness and his speed. Mysterios triumph in the 2006 Royal Rumble match his battles with Eddie Guerrero in 2005 and his World Heavyweight Championship victory at WrestleMania 22 are some of his remembered battles. As expected, some of Mysterios matches are forgotten about but it does not mean that some of them lacked quality.
Rey Mysterio and Randy Orton have had several battles throughout their legendary careers with their feud heightened in 2006. However they revisited their feud 12 years later and they collided in a forgotten chairs match at the TLC 2018 pay-per-view.The veterans provided fans with an entertaining chairs match and the length was perfectly fine. They know each others styles extremely well and Orton was back to his sadistic ways. Nevertheless it was Mysterio who got the bragging rights on Orton with a hurricanrana for the victory.The Royal Rumble match is the main selling point of a Royal Rumble pay per view and sometimes the undercard can get lost in the shuffle. Thats what exactly happened at the 2004 Royal Rumble when Rey Mysterio put the WWE Cruiserweight Championship on the line against Jamie Noble.
It was the first time that the Cruiserweight Championship was defended at the Royal Rumble. This was one of the shortest matches in the history of the Rumble with the bout lasting three minutes and 12 minutes. Despite the shortness it was a decent battle with Mysterio retaining his title.Continuing with the theme of the Cruiserweight Championship Rey Mysterio was looking to regain the title and he battled Chavo Classic who was the father of Chavo Guerrero Jr. and the older brother of Eddie Guerrero. Chavo Classic was the oldest Cruiserweight Champion in WWE history and he was far past his prime.Chavo Classic surprised fans with a moonsault. However Mysterio was largely untroubled and he connected with a seated senton. He executed the 619 on Chavo Classic and he finished him off with a leg drop to once again hold the WWE Cruiserweight Championship.
