Before They Were Wrestling Stars: Rey Misterio, Jr. DVD Review



By: Guest
26 April 2009

Wrestling 101 UK Scene RSS Feed | Feeds

rey mysterio dvdRey Mysterio. By now, he is a mainstay in WWE, and a former World Champion. But back when he first started his career, he worked at small independent shows across Mexico. This DVD collects 6 vintage Rey Mysterio matches, all of which took place in small arena's across Mexico.

The first match, has Rey Rey teaming up with Torrero, to face the team of Jerry Estrada and Negro Aztecas . This match is a curious choice for this DVD, as Rey Mysterio barely get's any offence in, most of the match is carried by his partner. Why this match was chosen is anybody’s guess, I tend to think that the reason it was chosen was that nothing else was available.

After that filler match, the DVD really gets going, as Rey faces off against Juventud Guerrera, in a classic 2 out of 3 falls match. This match has a mixture of both technical wrestling, and high-flying, and although both combatants were very young at this point, you can sense the potential that both future stars have.

Next, we are presented with another Tag match, this time it’s Rey Mysterio teaming with Octagon, to face the team of KGB and Pentagon. While most of the match features KGB and Pentagon dominating, when Rey is given time to shine, it's well worth seeing. There is also an exciting exchange between Octagon and Pentagon, and while this match is yet another where the other stars feature more than Rey, it's still an exciting tag match.

Following this, we have a three on three tag match, with the team of Rey Mysterio, Super Calo & Leon Negro, up against Juventud Guerrera, Psycosis and Halloween. Some people reading this may remember Super Calo from his matches in WCW, while Psycosis is no stranger to ECW, WCW and the WWE, among other US organizations. This match features quite a lot of exciting high-flying, provided by not just Rey, but everyone else in the match too. This match, unlike the first match on the disc, gives every competitor an equal opportunity to shine. And for those of you who have seen Halloween wrestle before, you may be interested to know that he hasn't got his familiar face paint here, instead he wears a pumpkin mask!

Moving on, and we have yet another Rey vs Juventud match, and this one may even be better than the first. This match, along with the first Rey/Juvi match, really proves that these two had great chemistry in the ring back then. Like the other Rey vs Juvi match on this DVD, it is a classic of Lucha Libre.

And on to the final match. This one is another odd choice, but it is also quite interesting, due to the opposing team involved. This match pits Rey Mysterio, Super Calo and Leon Negro, up against Los Hombres De Ex. Los Hombres De Ex are a rip off of the X-Men, the team features Wolverine (in full yellow body suit, but without the claws!), Gambit, and Cyclops, and while Wolverine looks like his comic counterpart, Gambit and Cyclops look very different. Anyway, this match is a fast paced and while Rey Mysterio doesn't get much offence in, it is still a fun, short match, ruined slightly by the finish.

The commentary on this DVD is done by Kris Kloss (who was the commentator for XPW), and Manny Peeples, and while I know nothing about Peeples, his supposedly Mexican accent is quite suspect. The only drawback to the commentary is Manny Peeples constant alcohol jokes, which are quite annoying and unfunny.

The biggest drawback to the overall package, is that the camerawork is less than professional, with the camera swinging around constantly on some matches, while not zooming close enough to the action in other matches. It is understandable though, as these matches were filmed at small Mexican venues years ago.

Bonus Features

The bonus features have 4 extra matches, seemingly filmed from the same venues as the matches on the main program. They include Halloween & Damien 666 vs Leon Negro & Ninja Shiraku, Psycosis, Juventud & Halloween vs Los Chocales, a Steel Cage match: Konnan, Octagon & La Parka vs Cibernetico, Jerry Estrada & Perro Russo, and a Mask vs Mask match: Psycosis vs Ultraman 2000.

Overall

Overall, this disc won't make Rey Mysterio any new fans, but for those people who want to see where Rey started, it’s a very interesting disc. Anybody else who wants to see some Lucha Libre action, and can overlook the poor production values, will most likely enjoy this disc too.

Points: 8 / 10
