If you diagree that's fine but to add ridiculous input like that doesn't do your arguments any favors. I've seen all of El Generico's best matches, along with Rey's with Guerrero, Malenko, Psychosis, his wwe work, etc.. And reasonably believe El Generico is a much more well rounded worker.
First of all, I don't think comparing Rey and Generico is a good idea. Mainly because they are so different. I need to watch more Generico stuff but I watched his matches with Daniels over the TV title and didn't like them. The matches were built around Generico's comebacks, and that works if you're invested in the character, but if you're a guy who had just started watching ROH like me, then you won't be into it.
I don't think I'm in a position to be truly fair to Generico because I have seen so few of his matches. I will say that he was obviously able to connect to the ROH fanbase, so good for him. I had no desire to see him again after those matches with Daniels.
The only reason they were compared next to one another is b/c they both wear masks. What riveting breakdowns. Other than that there is no need for a comparison. Both are excellent workers. Mysterio wins overall - his tenure assists him without even going into the overall details of his talent. Not a slight towards Generico in any, way shape, or form. Mysterio beats MOST workers in the history of the sport. Generico is close though. I'll give him that. On a personal note I even prefer Generico. Of course, that isn't the point here. Career spanning talent is. Generico is in his prime and Mysterio is in his final chapter. It's where things are at today.
If Santino is gimmicked from Italy, Jindar Mahal from India and both are born and raised Canadians, maybe Generico will be booked from elsewhere since he can speak many languages. What nationality is "Sebei"?

You'd think HHH would have pushed to keep the old gimmick. He's kept most of the other indie stars gimmick integrity on point, so why not Generico?
It would be kind of cool if he had this unmasked gimmick and then 'discovers' the mask, cape etc.. and starts to slowly transform into El Generico on TV. A way to maybe help WWE casuals understand him more. That's all the optimism I have though lol.
