If it sometimes feels like Rey Mysterio has been around forever, it’s because he kind of has. There’s also a reason why whenever he comes jumping out the sky, it doesn’t take long for someone to remark about how great he looks for his age.
The legendary luchador has been doing this pro wrestling thing for a long time. As of April 30, for exactly three decades, as it turns out.
Both WWE and Mysterio marked his 30th anniversary in the business on Twitter this afternoon:
On this day at the age of 14 I made my debut and it’s a very special day in Mexico “ Día del niño” “Day of the Kid” if I had the opportunity to re live these 30 yrs I would do it all over again. Thank you to all my fans!! Much love and respect! https://t.co/4imFIXyQvO— ♛Rey Mysterio❔ (@reymysterio) April 30, 2019
Mysterio picked up a win over Samoa Joe on Raw last night (April 29), perhaps as part of his anniversary celebration.
Congrats, Rey! Here’s to many more!
