Eric Bischoff, a renowned figure in professional wrestling, recently voiced a strong opinion on the iconic 'Mount Rushmore' of wrestling, singling out WWE Hall of Famer Rey Mysterio as a deserving candidate for this prestigious recognition.

Speaking on the latest episode of "83 Weeks," Bischoff passionately argued for Mysterio's inclusion among the ranks of wrestling legends such as Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Steve Austin, and John Cena. His endorsement of Mysterio is not just a nod to the luchador's skill but also a tribute to his remarkable longevity in the sport.

During the episode, Bischoff specifically highlighted Mysterio's performance against Logan Paul at the recent Crown Jewel event. Despite the changes in his in-ring capabilities since his debut in the mid-90s, Mysterio continues to deliver performances that exceed expectations.

Bischoff praised Mysterio's ability to keep the match with Paul engaging and credible, attributing part of this success to the excellent color commentary, especially by Wade Barrett. Barrett's insights, according to Bischoff, greatly enhanced the storytelling aspect of the match, bringing viewers closer to the minds of the competitors.

Bischoff Advocates for Mysterio

At 48, Rey Mysterio continues to impress with his in-ring prowess, leading Bischoff to suggest a revision of the traditional Mount Rushmore concept. He believes that Mysterio's influence in popularizing Lucha Libre and his consistent professionalism warrant his inclusion in every discussion about wrestling's greatest icons.

In 2018, Bischoff's version of wrestling's Mount Rushmore featured Hulk Hogan, Vince McMahon, Ric Flair, and Steve Austin. His recent endorsement of Mysterio for this elite group underscores the evolving nature of professional wrestling and the lasting impact of wrestlers who continue to inspire and entertain fans across generations.

Rey Mysterio's journey in professional wrestling is a testament to his enduring appeal and versatility. From his early days in the high-flying world of Lucha Libre to becoming a celebrated WWE Hall of Famer, Mysterio has carved out a unique niche.

His ability to adapt and excel at various stages of his career has not only won him countless fans but also the respect of industry stalwarts like Eric Bischoff. As the conversation around the sport's greatest ever continues, Mysterio's name is increasingly featuring prominently, a fitting tribute to a wrestler who has truly transcended boundaries and expectations.
