Thunder Rosa Recalls Meeting Rey Mysterio For First Time

AEW star Thunder Rosa recently spoke with Heel Squad on a number of topics including meeting WWE Hall of Famer Rey Mysterio for the first time.

Rosa said, “When I met him, he had no mask and I remember I was in the waiting room and he came to the side and he’s like, ‘Hi, I’m Oscar.’” “I was like, ‘Hi, nice to meet you,’ and then three seconds later I was like, ‘Rey Mysterio!’ and he was like, ‘Yeah, that’s me.’”

“He was so kind and watching him and like the perfection and like the timing and just everything about him, I was like, ‘Wow, I’m in the presence of royalty.’ You know, it was just … it was really cool. It was the best experience for me as a performer and also as a wrestler because their tenacity and, like, their perfection of some of the people that I work with really motivated me to do better and to be more, and to like really — it was like a fast track to everything else that I was going to do in life.”
