Rey Mysterio is a true veteran in the world of professional wrestling, and his influence in the industry is undeniable. Mysterio is proud of his heritage and his friendship with the late, great Eddie Guerrero. He also brought back the LWO and now it appears Mysterio surpassed a major LWO record held by Eddie Guerrero.

WWE re-introduced the LWO stable right before WrestleMania 39 and they have been carrying on the legacy of Eddie Guerrero ever since. Fans were surprised to see Legado Del Fantasma turning babyface but they have now gotten used to it already.

Obviously, the LWO was initially introduced by Eddie Guerrero and its re-introduction is a homage to the late pro wrestling legend. Guerrero originally led the faction in WCW between October 5, 1998, and January 1, 1999. His 88-day run with the faction came to a halt after he sustained injuries in a car accident.

Rey Mysterio has been the leader of the faction after reviving it on March 31st. The Master of The 619 has officially crossed 89 days as the leader of the faction, thus he has surpassed Eddie Guerrero’s record of 88 days as the LWO’s leader.


Triple H also initially rejected pitch to bring back the LWO in WWE. Now it remains to be seen what the company has planned for the faction, as they continue to be beloved babyfaces even now. After all, even Konnan is open to rejoining the faction somewhere down the line.

What do you think of this achievement? Do you think The LWO will become the best faction in WWE in the future? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
