He was known as Rey Mysterio Jr. (Spanish for “King of Mystery”) during his tenures with Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) and World Championship Wrestling (WCW). According to ESPN, he is “widely regarded as the greatest cruiserweight in pro wrestling history”.

Mysterio is known for his high-flying Lucha libre wrestling style, which is credited with having helped kick-start the emergence of cruiserweight wrestling in the United States in the mid-1990s. Championships held by Mysterio over the course of his career include WWE’s World Heavyweight Championship, the WWE Championship, WCW/WWE Cruiserweight Championship, WCW World Tag Team Championship, WCW Cruiserweight Tag Team Championship, WWC World Junior Heavyweight Championship, WWE Tag Team Championship, and WWE Intercontinental Championship. He is also the twenty-first WWE Triple Crown Champion, the twenty-first WWE Grand Slam Champion, and the winner of the 2006 Royal Rumble match.

In 2021, Rey & Dominik became the first-ever Father & Son team to win a tag team championship in WWE. In 2023 on the day before WrestleMania 39, he was inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame by Konnan while still being an active full-time competitor in the company.
