The Master of the 619
It is no surprise that Rey Mysterio is a hero and an inspiration to all of his young fans. With his brightly colored masks and incredible acrobatic maneuvers, Mysterio adds charisma and excitement to the world of sports entertainment. Mysterio's passion, enthusiasm and will to persevere have won him fans of all ages.
While growing up in San Diego, Mysterio always wanted to be a WWE Superstar. As a young teenager, he followed his dreams by training under the tutelage of his uncle in the unpredictable and high-flying Mexican style of wrestling known as Lucha Libre. He began his career in Mexico working with the wrestling promotion AAA (Asistencia Asesora y Administracin). While there, he won the AAA Welterweight Title 5 times and the AAA Light Heavyweight Title twice. His training and career in Tijuana, Mexico led him to even bigger stages first in ECW and then WCW before joining WWE in July 2002.
The Master of the 619 (named after the area code of his hometown of San Diego) is a former WWE Champion, World Heavyweight Champion, Intercontinental Champion, Cruiserweight Champion, WWE Tag Team Champion, WWE Royal Rumble winner in 2006 and was the 21st Superstar in WWE history to win the Triple Crown.
Mysterio's talents extend beyond the ring. He was featured in an episode of the hit NBC series Heroes, where one of the characters used a variation of his signature 619 maneuver. Mysterio has also appeared on several television programs, including Mas Vale Tarde, Titulares Y Mas and Ritmo Deportivo on Telemundo, Disney's Zeke and Luther, Fox News Channel's Fox & Friends and The Sauce on Fuse.
Mysterio's appeal to Hispanic fans is a key part of his success. With the banner MEXICAN proudly tattooed across his torso, he is a constant reminder of the success and progress made by Latino Americans. He won the award for Favorite Extreme Athlete at the 2008 American Latino TV Awards; was a presenter at the 2008 Latin Hip-Hop Awards Show and Tecate Premios Deportes Awards; and appeared on Univision's Premios Deportes Sports Awards. He has also been featured in magazines including People En Espanol, Revolver, Rego and Urban Ink.
Mysterio is also deeply involved in educational and charitable ventures. He has worked with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the WrestleMania Reading Challenge and WWE's Tribute To The Troops, which brings a taste of Americana to U.S. military personnel stationed on the front lines during the holiday season.
You can catch Rey Mysterio on USA Network's Monday Night RAW at 9/8c.
