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.

Talent/charisma draws. Not size.
