As seen on this week’s edition of Monday Night Raw, Rey Mysterio made 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.
I am a die-hard wrestling fan and I like to go back watching old, classic matches of wrestling. From now on these columns will go back and relive some of these matches. The first edition is for the World Heavyweight Championship from SummerSlam of 2004 involving the Champion in Chris Benoit and the challenger Randy Orton.
I’ll be the first one to tell you that I cannot stand The Miz no more than anyone else. If you think about it, why do we dislike him so much? Is it the fact that is cocky, annoying, and obnoxious? He has been pushed down our throats? If you look at his history then maybe you will have a different opinion on “the awesome one”
Now everyone knows about how he got onto WWE through “the real world” reality show on MTV then onto tough enough back in 2004. He did not win the show but a job in the land of the giants. Now The Miz didn’t pay his Indy dues but the WWE one no doubt.
He worked dark matches in 2005 then made his WWE TV debut on SmackDown in 2006 as a host. Now he was a good host no doubt. He has that talking, walking attitude where he is was over confident.
Marvel.com recently spoke with World Heavyweight Champion John Cena. Here are some highlights:
Marvel.com: You just returned from a major injury way sooner than everyone expected. What motivated you to come back so soon?
John Cena: I just don’t like [being out]. I really like the job and it comes with ups and downs and I know not necessarily everyone at my job loves me but that shouldn’t sour me from my place of employment. I’ve truly found a home in the WWE and when I’m not there all I want to do is be there. I think that helped me get back really soon because everything I did was focused on getting back sooner and sooner.

Stone Cold Steve Austin versus Triple H at WrestleMania 30 would be a waste of both legendary names.
A few weeks ago, rumors and reports from the Wrestling Observer claimed one creative idea pitched was if Austin was medically cleared, to have him represent Vince McMahon and take on Triple H in a match for full control of the company.
The battle for control of the company doesn’t surprise me. I wrote about how I think it will happen back in May. It should not be with Austin versus Triple H.
