In an intriguing blend of mixed martial arts and professional wrestling, legendary luchador Rey Mysterio has publicly expressed his desire to see UFC star Brandon Moreno make a grand entrance into the WWE realm. Mysterio, who has never shied away from showcasing his support for Moreno, was present at UFC 290 earlier this year, passionately cheering on Moreno as he defended his Flyweight title against Alexandre Pantoja.

During a candid conversation with The MMA Hour, Mysterio didn’t hold back his enthusiasm at the prospect of Moreno bringing his fighting prowess to the WWE ring. "I caught a glimpse of the action on social media. Moreno and I, we had this podcast around a month ago, and I was half-jokingly persuading him – ‘Show me some of your MMA moves, and I’ll give you a crash course in wrestling.

Let’s hit the ring together.' He was all in for it," Mysterio shared, chuckling at the memory. "We were having a bit of fun with it, but deep down, I truly believe he harbors a genuine passion for both wrestling and lucha libre.

I'm looking forward to future collaborations with him, and who knows? Maybe we'll see him making waves in a WWE ring one day," he added, optimism lacing his words. [H/T Fightful] Moreno is no stranger to the glitz and glamour of professional wrestling, having previously participated in AAA's Triplemania 31.

His potential future with the WWE, a renowned Stamford-based entertainment company, remains a tantalizing topic of speculation.
