Rey Mysterio reveals if WWE pitched losing his mask

WWE legend Rey Mysterio is one of the greatest masked wrestlers of all time. His mask is an important part of his character. Fans might have wondered whether WWE ever pitched a storyline about him losing the mask. It seems that has not been the case in his prolonged career with WWE.

Rey Mysterio reveals WWE never pitched such idea

‘Not at all,’ was the answer Mysterio gave to ‘BT Sport’ when he saw down with Ariel Helwani, with the former WWE Champion making it clear that there have been no creative ideas for him to be unmasked. Of course, it is not unknown that during his career, there have been plenty of storylines where wrestlers have taken Mysterio’s mask off, such as Randy Orton and Chris Jericho, but he has always been able to cover up after.

Even in matches where his mask has been on the line, Mysterio has always won with WWE never pushing for him to legitimately be unmasked behind the scenes. The WWE veteran has a reason why he thinks that hasn’t happened:

‘I truly feel, and I haven’t sat down to talk about this with Vince, but I feel Vince sees the respect that I have for the mask, and he respects that,’ he said. ‘Rey Mysterio, I think, is marketable with the mask, and he’s always been. WCW didn’t take advantage of that opportunity, but Vince did, and man, did it work.’

Mysterio is celebrating his 20th anniversary since debuting with the company. He is teaming up with his son Dominik Mysterio. The Mysterios will be in action this Saturday at WWE SummerSlam in a No-Disqualification Tag-Team match against The Judgment Day’s Finn Balor and Damian Priest.
