Rey Mysterio is one of WWE’s most popular cruiser-weights of all time and he recently spoke about the wrestlers that he wishes to wrestle with. Rey is quite old now but he has a lot of experience. He started wrestling when he was a teenager and since then has performed against some of the best superstars of all time.
Rey can still perform complex wrestling moves quite easily, even though he is old. He is close to retirement but he was featured on the cover of WWE 2K22, which is WWE’s official wrestling video game. He spoke to Metro.co.uk about the game.
He stated that although most of the fantasy bouts can only happen digitally, there are some wrestlers that he wishes to face in real life, and that can actually still happen.
Rey Mysterio Speaks About Being on The Cover of 2K22
“I’ve been keeping a close eye on Kevin Owens,” Mysterio.
“He and I have never clashed one-on-one. It’s always been in a Four-Way – not too long ago, with Seth, and Finn, and myself. But Kevin Owens is a guy that I’ve had my eyes on”. He also wishes to fight former NXT Champion and Universal Champion Finn Balor.
Balor is still considered one of WWE’s top stars, even though he is no longer performing regularly at main events. “Finn Balor is another guy that I would love to go out there and just compete [with] one-on-one,” Mysterio said.
“Those two guys are definitely at the top of my list right now”. Rey made an appearance on game covers before. His most notable appearance was on Smackdown vs RAW 2011. He was with 4 other superstars on the cover.
This time, he is alone on the cover. “It is something that is very special to me,” Mysterio said. “Because of all the years I put into this business, a lot of the feedback that I get back from fans is, ‘Rey, you’re one of my favorite superstars that I love to pick when I play WWE 2K,’ Mysterio said.
“So to hear that and now be on the cover this is it”. He also stated that this came at the right time for him as he is nearing the end of his career as a professional wrestler. “I think it is a great time for me too because I don’t know how many years I have left in this career,” Rey Mysterio said. “This timing was right on point and just put the cherry on top”.
