Nah he's terrible on the mic, i'm a fan and even i can admit that. His delivery is what bothers me the most, he stutters alot and it seems like he forgets what he's supposed to say.

Re: Rey Mysterio Jr, Underrated?

Very underrated (although seeing these responses, maybe not quite as much as I thought.) I never understood why Rey gets so much shit for his ringwork. I've seen quite a few people calling him a bad worker... Uh, fucking HOW? While not all of his matches are 5 star classics (but really, who can claim that?), he may have the least subpar matches out of any wrestler I've seen. His matches are decent at worst, mindblowing at best. The only reasoning I see behind bashing his work is that "he"s a spot monkey," which is just wrong. People seem to think that high flyers = spot monkeys these days.

That being said, I wouldn't call myself a particularly big Mysterio fan. His WWE moveset is really contrived and impossible to believe, he's pretty bad on the mic, and imo he gets a little boring when he gets overexposed. There's also his awful WHC reign, but that was booking's fault, not his. All in all, I consider him RIDICULOUSLY talented, I'm just not really a diehard fan. I've always seen Eddie as more of a complete package.

^furious, projects self-image onto others^

Talent/charisma draws. Not size.

Re: Rey Mysterio Jr, Underrated?

Smallest man to hold the wwe and whc belts. That's quite an achievement considering who owns the company. But that aside, he's the greatest highflyer/cruiserweight of all time. One of best workers in the company's history (but we're supposed to believe it's hbk and that's only because vince was playing guitar in hbk's theme music) and a great babyface. Plus, he sells merch. After wwe bought wcw, wwe should have brought in konnan as his babyface mouth piece
