• Rey Mysterio On What Made WCW Unmask Him

During a recent interview with Ariel Helwani, former WWE Champion Rey Mysterio was asked about being unmasked in WCW and why that decision was made.

Here’s what Mysterio said:

“From my understanding, there was a rumor that was spread out by one person and one person only – Scott Hall.

Scott Hall was like ‘Rey, what are you doing with that mask, you’re a pretty motherf****r man’. I was like ‘come on man, don’t start rumors’ and that led into another thing and you know, eventually they felt that it was time for me to wrestle without the mask.

Now, we didn’t market the mask like it should have been marketed in WCW which later on, Vince capitalized on that because WWE has always been good at expanding the merchandise sales.

In WCW it was never made, they never gave it that push that the mask deserved and the history behind lucha libre. Again, I believe it was one comment made by Scott which then a couple of years later ended up with me taking off the mask.”
