Konnan Supports Mysterio-Reigns Showdown
Konnan voiced his approval while responding to an engaging fan question about the possibility of Mysterio squaring off against Roman Reigns for the coveted company's title.
As a seasoned booker for AAA, Konnan presented the idea of incorporating the Latino World Order (LWO) in a storyline involving Reigns' faction, The Bloodline. Interestingly, Mysterio and Reigns had already locked horns back in 2021 in a riveting Hell in a Cell match on the June 18 episode of "WWE SmackDown." Despite Mysterio's valiant efforts, Reigns emerged victorious.
Currently, the wrestling landscape is abuzz with rumors of The Usos potentially severing ties with The Bloodline, even as Mysterio provides unwavering support to his LWO comrades. Mysterio's career is a testament to his resilience and unyielding spirit, allowing him to attain immense success in a domain often dominated by larger competitors.
His remarkable achievements include clinching the world championship and becoming the first WWE competitor to secure a tag title alongside his offspring. Adding yet another feather to his embellished cap, Mysterio was inducted into the esteemed WWE Hall of Fame this year, a remarkable honor he received even before drawing the curtains on his illustrious career.
Providing a fitting tribute to his enduring friendship and professional camaraderie, Mysterio's Hall of Fame induction speech was eloquently delivered by Konnan.
