MINISODE 2: HEEL SECTION On Rey Mysterio Jr's WWE Debut

There is no disputing the impact Rey Mysterio Jr. has had in the world of wrestling.  Conventional pro wrestling (and, to a larger extent, WWE) wisdom says that a guy like Mysterio is destined to hang on the lower and middle portions of the cards.

We take a look back at his very first match against Chavo Guerrero.
