WWE: Rey Mysterio on losing his mask in WCW

Last updated

WWE Superstar and former WCW performer Rey Mysterio appeared on The Kurt Angle show podcast and discussed several topics from his career.

One of the topics covered was when Mysterio lost his mask back in WCW, and the Mexican luchador legend revealed if he regretted having to go through with that on-screen.

‘I don’t think so, Kurt. I think when I lost the mask, the next night I faced Kevin Nash, and that’s what the giant killer came up. Sometimes, I think to myself, if I wouldn’t have lost the mask, would I have had the push that I got against all these bigger guys?

“I don’t know. But because it happened, there was a positive side to it. And that’s when I started working with the bigger guys, which eventually opened up the doors for me in WWE.’
