There is absolutely no doubt that Rey Mysterio is one of the most popular and greatest luchadors to have ever stepped foot inside the world of professional wrestling and remains a beloved Superstar in WWE. He competed in Mexico a lot as well. On the WWE WrestleMania Backlash pay-per-view, Rey Mysterio and his son Dominik Mysterio challenged Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode for the Smackdown Tag Team Titles. They would go on to defeat Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode for the Smackdown Tag Team Titles and become the first-ever father and son duo to win the WWE tag team titles in the company’s history. Rey Mysterio’s daughter Aalyah Mysterio is also gone for a bad reason.
Recently Mexican pro wrestling legend José Luis Alvarado Nieves, aka Brazo de Plata and Super Porky, has passed away at the age of 58. The talk show Mas Lucha announced his sad passing during their show on Monday night. CMLL, AAA, and wrestlers from all over the world paid tribute to the late legend.
