Yesterday, Rey Mysterio took to Instagram to reflect on a triple threat match that he had on the independent scene with CM Punk and Eddie Guerrero.
This match took place just before Eddie Guerrero returned to WWE in 2002 and Rey Mysterio made his debut with the company in that same year.
In the comment section, CM Punk also took some time to reflect and Express gratitude towards the two veterans or helping him along at such an early point in his career:
“People should know how good Eddie really was. He was in a rough spot. Recently fired, home front was turbulent. He came to this show and looked tired. Said to me “I hate three ways. If it’s okay with you, can you and Rey put something together and just call it to me?” I wasn’t sure that was possible. He didn’t miss a beat. And you Rey, so open and giving to a little punk Indy kid. You laid out a masterpiece and I wasn’t sure I could keep up. One of the early times I remember being in the ring and thinking to myself, “this is fucking MAGIC!” A pleasure. An honor. I miss Eddie, truly fortunate to have worked him as many times as I did. I feel the same about you Rey! Legends, who treated me like an equal, and I’ve never forgotten it. Viva la raza!”
