Rey Mysterio Net Worth $8.5 Million

Mysterio entered the world of professional wrestling at the age of 14, when he still was in high school. His uncle, Rey Mysterio Sr, taught him the high-flying style he implemented in his wrestling, called Lucha Libre. The mask by which Mysterio is known across the whole world has special meaning to the wrestlers through the Lucha Libre style of wrestling. His debut fight came on 30th April 1989 in Mexico. A few years after his first fight he entered professional wrestling by signing a contract with Asistencia Asesoria y Administracion in 1992. Before that contract, he used many ring names like “The Green Lizard” or “Colibri” until finally his uncle gave him the name of Rey Mysterio Jr. in 1991.

The years Rey spent with Asistencia Asesoria y Administracion propelled him into more serious fighting and he was soon recognized as one of the best wrestlers using the Lucha Libre technique of quick continuous holds and maneuvers. That earned him a contract with Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) in 1995, but he didn`t stay long there. Next year Mysterio signed with World Championship Wrestling (WCW), debuting on 16 June 1996, in a title match which he lost, Mysterio was soon back for more and this time he won the Cruiserweight Championship. His net worth began to rise.

During that time, Rey was celebrated all around America and that glory provided him with the ultimate opportunity of his career; signing with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) in 2002. His net worth then grew constantly. Being quite mobile, but still able to hurt the big guys, he was something the world of wrestling needed. Mysterio used the chance he got and within few years won a World Heavyweight Championship title in 2006, which gave a little more boost to his net worth and also his glory. His career didn`t stop there, because he repeated that endeavor in 2011.

Rey retired from World Wrestling Entertainment in 2015, after injuries that slowed his movement, and alleged drug abuses. During his career he fought against names like Dean Malenko, Big Show, CM Punk, Dave Batista and many more renowned wrestlers. He is now back to the Asistencia Asesoria y Administracion where his career started, still dominating and winning titles.

Mysterio has also been the target of camera throughout his career. He has made a number of documentaries about wrestling, which have surely added considerable amounts to his net worth.

Regarding his personal life, the wrestler has been married to Angie since 1996, and they have a son Dominic (1997) and a daughter Ayllah (2001). Mysterio is a Roman Catholic, and is quite devoted to his religion; he proves that by crossing himself before every match, and he also has a number of religious tattoos on his body.
