Rey Mysterio will receive a well-deserved honor this year as he is inducted into the 2023 WWE Hall of Fame. His name was the first one that WWE announced this year, and the night will be a very special one for Mr. 6-1-9. He will also have a very dear friend around to induct him.
According to a report from Dave Meltzer, Konnan has been tapped to induct Rey Mysterio into the 2023 WWE Hall of Fame. Although this announcement is not official, it has made the rounds since Meltzer tweeted the information out.
Konnan will be inducting Rey into the Hall of Fame. Rey asked for him and the company approved it. As noted last night, to me it was the only choice.
After his breakout success in WCW, Rey Mysterio signed with World Wrestling Entertainment in 2002, where he would go on to achieve even greater success. He quickly became a staple of the company’s cruiserweight division and won the WWE Cruiserweight Championship on multiple occasions. Although he did have a couple of hiatuses, Rey Mysterio has been active with WWE for the better part of the last two decades.
Rey Mysterio’s most memorable moments in WWE came during his feud with Eddie Guerrero in 2005, which culminated in a highly acclaimed match at WrestleMania 21. He would also go on to win the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 22, becoming the second wrestler of Hispanic descent to win the title.
We are still waiting on more names for the 2023 WWE Hall of Fame. Click here for a spoiler on another name that is expected this year.
This year’s WWE Hall of Fame will go down after the go-home SmackDown before WrestleMania. Since the company didn’t have to sell tickets for the event, they could take their time with induction announcements. Obviously, Rey Mysterio’s inclusion is a big attraction for the ceremony.
