Rey Mysterio: World Title Win At WWE WrestleMania 22 Was The Peak Moment Of My Career
Mysterio won the title from Kurt Angle in a triple threat match
Rey Mysterio has recalled his World Heavyweight Championship win at WWE WrestleMania 22, describing the occasion as the 'peak moment of my career'.
Mysterio won his first World Championship in a triple threat match, also involving Kurt Angle and Randy Orton, at WrestleMania in 2006, with the victory coming just months after close friend Eddie Guerrero had passed away.
Speaking on the Kurt Angle Show, Mysterio reflected: "Incredible, that was the peak moment of my career. That’s when, okay, you have changed the sport. You have opened up the doors, and that was all thanks to the opportunities that I go to work to be able to prove to Vince and to the people in charge with the pen and paper that I am able to attract a different crowd. I can have fans back me up and believe in me, same with Eddie and Chris.
"For so long, they were waiting for them to become champions, and that moment came and it changed the industry forever. Same thing happened with me, and I’m really, truly blessed to have been given that opportunity. Not only that, but to have been able to share that moment with [Kurt Angle] and Randy [Orton], who are two of my favorites."
