The entire experience of interviewing Rey Mysterio was absolutely incredible. Rey is a wrestler I’ve looked up to for years. I remember watching his amazing high-flying moves and iconic ring entrance where he’d share a pre-match message with his fans who were kids; everything about this man was endearing and heartwarming, and something about that connected with me at a young age. Plus, the badass masks were a nice touch for my whimsical, young mind. While at BCW in Windsor, I not only got to host a backstage promo with Rey Mysterio — which blew my mind, having watched countless promos of his growing up — but I also had the opportunity of interviewing the legend. Dive into the conversation on AMBY as we discuss hanging out with rap artists, what he says to kids in the crowd, being a car fanatic, words of wisdom, and inspiring underdogs everywhere.
