Former WWE Superstar Tommy Dreamer recently spoke about Rey Mysterio switching brands and joining SmackDown.
This week, Rey approached Triple H on the blue brand with the idea of hanging up his boots. However, the game convinced the masked luchador to switch to the blue brand. The Head of Creative got him a spot in the fatal foursome to determine the number one contender for the Intercontinental Championship, which he ended up winning.
On the post-SmackDown episode of Busted Open Podcast, Dreamer mentioned that moving to SmackDown is a great opportunity for Mysterio to work with a generational talent like Gunther. He explained that there were still open deals with Dominik Mysterio that Rey could turn to later.
“Luckily we can see this matchup. Again, Rey Mysterio defies the odds. He and Gunther are going to be off the charts.” Tommy continued, “It’s a great change of pace for Rey Mysterio. It’s going to be a great, great match. And like I said, I think it was done for a reason, no, so much for anything else’s storyline, because I still felt it was miles for him and his son, and unless The Judgment Day gets too Switch SmackDown.” [From 12:00 – 15:17]
Dreamer thinks working with Rey will help Mysterio Gunther
During the same conversation, the ECW legend mentioned that this feud would also bring out the best in Gunther. He stated that the Ring General’s fights with Mysterio would be very different from those with Sheamus because they were very contrasting in style.
“Yes the match is going to be great and I agree with your assessment that this could be next level for Gunther because he is linked to a great legend of all time. Nothing against Sheamus, but Sheamus is a very different competitor than Rey Mysterio.” [From 17:22 – 17:40]
It is not yet clear when Mysterio will face Gunther for the Intercontinental Championship.
