FALLS COUNT ANYWHERE: WWE Light Heavyweight Division?
Remember the Light Heavyweight division in WWE? This is one part of WWE/WCW programming I truly missed. It wasn’t always the show stealer; however it provided a great mix to tag team, and heavyweight type matches. With minor shows such as Main Event, and Superstars, there isn’t really a lot of viewership, basically because nothing usually happens worth talking about. If a Light Heavyweight division was created as a staple to these shows, this could give people a reason to actually tune in. Who in the WWE could compete in such a division?
The legendary Mysterio has been exciting crowds for what seems forever. This lucha libra is getting older, and is more prone to injury, but still draws a crowd. He could bring a lot of attention to a Cruiserweight Division. Arguably the greatest light weight of them all.
As seen on this week’s edition of Monday Night Raw, Rey Mysteriomade his return once again to WWE. Now I knew that he would be returning at some point but when I saw his music played and ran down to the ring I was not excited. When I was younger I was a fan of his. I watch his matches back in ECW and WCW; he made his WWE debut in 2002 but is he that special? He was World Heavyweight champion twice and not for that long. He was WWE champion for a night but was defeated by John Cena. He is very injury prone but every time he gets injured, he has a spot waiting on him when he becomes healthy again.
I want to go back and see if he is really this great or just a fan favorite.
WWE.com is reporting that Rey Mysterio suffered a concussion during his match with The Miz for the WWE Intercontinental Championship this past Sunday at SummerSlam. Mysterio is not medically cleared to return to the ring at this time.
