World Famous CB Recalls Rey Mysterio Almost Forgetting His Mask At All In
Mysterio somehow forgot his mask
Rey Mysterio, famous for donning a mask across the globe, almost forgot to wear his at All In, The World Famous CB has recalled.
The Master Of The 619 was involved in the main event of All In, the show promoted by Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks, alongside Bandido and Rey Fenix against The Golden Elite. The match was supposed to last nearly thirty minutes but it had to be cut down to just under 12 minutes because Kazuchika Okada vs. Marty Scurll went way over its allotted time.
While the competitors were rushing around to ensure the main event had as much time as possible, Mysterio forgot to bring his mask to the Gorilla position and he had to run back and get it before the entrances could take place, World Famous CB recalled to Fightful.
"That incredible main event they pulled off in like eight minutes somehow and saved the pay-per-view, if you watch that - I think the full match is up on ROH's YouTube - 'cause obviously the show is very pressed for time. So, it's like, 'Alright, we gotta go, we gotta go. We only have ten minutes to pull the main event off.' So, if you watch the entrances, Rey Mysterio's music starts playing. Everything's discombobulated because, again, they're very short on time," CB said.
"But they're waiting for Rey - Fenix and Bandido - Fenix and Bandido, they just have to go out without Rey while Rey's music is playing. Because what happened backstage is Rey is sitting backstage and they go, 'Yo, we gotta go, we gotta go.' So, Rey starts running - and the arena's huge - so he starts running across the arena, he forgets his mask in the locker room. He stops and has to turn around. Somehow Rey Mysterio, of all people, forgot to bring his mask as he's running to Gorilla. He sprints back, grabs his mask, comes back, sprints to Gorilla, has to put it on, has to tie it and go out the curtains," he continued.
"Like, he did three wind sprints back and forth before he even went out to the ring. It was wild. He was just racing across the arena. I was like, 'How did Rey Mysterio, of all people, forget his mask? So, Rey's entrance ended up being like five minutes. Fenix and Bandido are waiting, then they go out. A minute later Rey finally comes out."
Shortly after the independent wrestling event, Mysterio would re-sign with WWE and he has remained with the company ever since.
