Rollins, the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, hailed Mysterio as the best luchador of all time and thanked him for his contributions to professional wrestling. He also got down on one knee and told Mysterio that he is loved and appreciated.
The tribute was a heartwarming moment, but it was not the only thing that happened at the event. Rollins also defended his title against Mysterio’s son, Dominik, who has been at odds with his father since turning on him to join Judgment Day. Rollins was victorious in the match, but it was clear that there is still bad blood between the two men.

In other action, Mysterio teamed up with his Latino World Order cohorts Cruz Del Toro and Joaquin Wilde to face GUNTHER, Ludwig Kaiser, and Giovanni Vinci of Imperium. The LWO overcame the heel faction on the night, which should give Mysterio some momentum as he heads into the final of the United States Championship Invitational on next week’s “WWE SmackDown.”
The event in Monterrey was a success, and it was clear that the fans were appreciative of the tributes to Mysterio. Rollins’ gesture was particularly touching, and it showed how much respect he has for one of the legends of the industry.
