Rey Mysterio has truly accomplished everything a pro wrestler would want, with over three decades under his belt. Being hailed as the greatest luchador of all time, Rey Mysterio also knows the physical toll his in-ring style took on his body. It appears that Mysterio even advised El Hijo Del Vikingo to tone down his own insane pro wrestling style.
The Master Of The 619 was inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame a couple of weeks ago and he then decided to share his near-limitless wealth of knowledge to the new generation of luchadors.
Mexico’s El Hijo del Vikingo has become one of the most talked-about names in pro wrestling recently. This is largely due to his incredible match against Kenny Omega on a previous episode of AEW Dynamite.
Vikingo’s daredevil antics inside the ring certainly keep fans at the edge of their seats. That said, his kind of in-ring style is simply not suitable for the long run. While speaking on his Keepin’ It 100 podcast, Konnan revealed that Rey Mysterio advised El Hijo del Vikingo to tone down his in-ring style.
“Not only have I told him, I had Rey Mysterio tell him. He already needs a knee operation, and Rey has had 14, so I told him to talk to Rey, and Rey’s giving him very good advice because I want that guy to last. He’s talented, and he’s a good kid.”
We will have to wait and see whether El Hijo del Vikingo will pay heed to Rey Mysterio’s advice. In the meantime, Rey Mysterio will continue imparting his wisdom to the stars of tomorrow and that’s all that matters.
