Rey Mysterio is considered by many to be one of the greatest high flyers in the history of professional wrestling, and there’s no denying that he’s been an innovator throughout the course of his career.
It’s safe to say that when it comes to high flyers, Rey’s opinion holds some weight, and during a recent appearance on X-Pac 1,2,360, he was asked to name the best high flyers in the wrestling business today.
“I want to say, I guess this answer’s fair because they’re from different countries so I’m going to do one from each country. Mexico Rey Fenix, US Ricochet, and UK Ospreay. I would love to see them in a three-way.”
The former WWE World Heavyweight Champion also talked about the path that Cody Rhodes has walked since leaving WWE, and he noted that he’s looking forward to hopefully facing him again someday.
“I actually do hope to work with him (Cody Rhodes) and meet outside of the WWE, I think after you’ve been in the WWE and you know what the grind is like and at some point you feel that it’s not for you and you need a break, you need to speak up, be heard. And I think that’s what he did…but now he’s pretty much doing what he loves, he’s still wrestling. He’s working with I’d say one of the biggest companies in Japan that is starting to make a big impact here in the U.S as well, but I truly hope to see him in the ring one day for New Japan.”
