Rey Escorpion – First showed up on the national stage as Escorpion Negro appearing on AAA in 2008 as part of Los Guapos VIP prior to that group disbanding and several members leaving AAA. Joined CMLL in 2009 as Escorpion were he mainly worked under card matches. He disappeared for a period of time and made his return to CMLL in August of 2010 again working low on the card, but this time he began to move up since he had shown he was quite good. In fact, he was one of the more underrated guys who popped up on TV for both AAA and CMLL up until that point. Early in 2011, he began to receive a push. He teamed with Ultimo Guerrero to win the Torneo Gran Alternativa. He then participated in the Forjando Un Idolo series were he again shined and from that point forward has worked semi- and main event level matches quite often. He replaced Atlantis in the Guerreros faction. He shows tremendous rudo charisma and has been one of the top performers in CMLL for 2011.
Rey Mysterio – WWE star that has left an incredible legacy throughout the wrestling world. Began his career at a very young age as el Colibri, but would soon make the switch to Rey Misterio Jr. He started mostly wrestling on shows in the Tijuana/Baja California and Southern California areas. When AAA was formed by Antonio Pena, Konnan recommended Rey Jr. to him. Rey became a hit mostly due to being a small guy, who would do some of the more amazing aerial moves that folks had seen. He had long-running feuds with Psicosis and Juventud Guerrera. Also unmasked all three of Los Destructores (Tony Arce, El Vulcano & Rocco Valente). By 1995, he would tour Japan with the WAR promotion and he and Psicosis took their feud there were they had a show-stealing match at the 2nd Super J Cup that was promoted by WAR. He soon made his way to the US for ECW along with his regular rivals Psicosis and Juventud Guerrera. After that brief stint in ECW, Rey was signed by WCW and would soon have memorable feuds with Dean Malenko, Eddie Guerrero, Syxx (Sean Waltman), and a long-list of cruiserweights who made their way to WCW. The Rey Misterio Jr. vs. Eddie Guerrero feud was phenomenal as it included Eddie at one point donning a mask as “El Caliente” to gain revenge on Rey, but was unsuccessful. At about that time, Eric Bischoff decided he would rather have all the luchadores unmasked, which of course could be added to the million dumb ideas in the history of WCW as masks would have generated some good revenue for a promotion that was throwing away money on a daily basis. After Bischoff was talked out of this unmasking idea (at least the first time), Eddie and Rey had one of the most memorable matches in the history of WCW at Halloween Havoc 1997. Rey came out victorious, but the rivalry would continue over the years. Rey eventually dropped his mask at SuperBrawl XI in a tag match (teaming with Konnan) against the Outsiders (Scott Hall & Kevin Nash). He wrestled unmasked in WCW up until the day they shut their doors and went unmasked to wrestle briefly in CMLL. After a brief stint in CMLL, Rey made his way back to the US as part of the WWE. They changed his name from “Rey Misterio Jr.” to “Rey Mysterio” and they made one of the smarter decisions in wrestling history by putting the mask back on Rey. He continued to feud with Eddie Guerrero in WWE and briefly had his son involved in an angle. He’s had memorable matches against some of the bigger names that have stepped foot into the WWE in the last decade including Kurt Angle, Los Guerreros (Eddie teaming with Chavo Jr.), Randy Orton, JBL, King Booker, Chris Jericho, CM Punk, and Alberto Del Rio. Rey also became a big merchandise mover and a draw on Smackdown as he was a big star for Hispanics. He also has held countless championships throughout his career. He recently had an incredible run of good matches were he won the WWE Title in a tournament against the Miz, only to drop the title one hour later to John Cena. Rey has had a number of injuries throughout his career and recently needed to take some time off, so the plan was for him to suffer a storyline injury at the hands of Alberto Del Rio, which he did. However, during the match Rey went all-out and suffered more damage. He’s expected to be out for a long time. Rey has placed himself as one of the all-time great wrestlers and his innovative high-flying influenced many wrestlers who have since followed.
