WWE Hall of Famer Rey Mysterio recently made his presence felt at the recently concluded UFC 290. While wrestling fans were thrilled to see him at the MMA event, many pointed out an embarrassing botch from the Dana White-led organization.
UFC shows regularly feature personalities from various sports, and it’s no secret that many WWE stars are also avid followers of Mixed Martial Arts. UFC 290 was headlined by a title unification bout for the Featherweight championship between Alexander Volkanovski and interim champion Yair Rodriguez.
Brandon Moreno also put his Flyweight title on the line against Alexandre Pantoja, which was among the five fights on the main card.
The cameras always focus on celebrities during UFC pay-per-views, and as expected, Rey Mysterio received a massive pop from the T-Mobile Arena crowd when his face flashed on the big screen. However, the production team made a huge blunder as he was referred to as “Ray Mysterio” during the broadcast.
That @reymysterio pop 🥵
This man always has impeccable drip ❄️

Here are some of the reactions of the fans on social media:
- “@btsportwwe @reymysterio @btsportufc the disrespect man they couldn’t even spell his name right”
- “@btsportwwe @reymysterio @btsportufc Bet Santino Marella was in charge of Mysterio’s spelling 💀”
- “@btsportwwe @reymysterio @btsportufc They really spelled bro’s name wrong 😭
- “@btsportwwe @reymysterio @btsportufc No way they said RAY”
The WWE Hall of Famer Rey Mysterio recently revived the Latino World Order (LWO) in March 2023, during the peak of his feud with his son, Dominik Mysterio, and The Judgment Day.
LWO currently consists of four members in addition to their leader Rey Mysterio: Santos Escobar, Joaquin Wilde, Cruz Del Toro, and Zelina Vega.
