** It's interesting to note that the last couple of years of Rey's WCW career were spent unmasked. As pointed out above, WWE never acknowledges this, and everyone from Rey himself to his uncle and predecessor to the Mexican Athletic Commission itself absolutely hated that decision. In fact, this is in part why he's simply called "Rey Mysterio" in WWE. Rey Jr. and his uncle found a way around the strict rules in Mexico regarding ''luchadores'' losing their masks (if they lose it, they can't put it back on); while '''Rey Mysterio Jr.''' had been unmasked, '''Rey Misterio''' (the original) had not. The original Misterio gave Rey Jr. permission to use the WWE-marketed '''Rey Mysterio''' (minus the "Jr."), with the original becoming Rey Misterio Sr., and Rey's mask was back on — this time, for good. By the time he returned to the Mysterio Jr. name on the independents, the whole thing was forgotten to anyone that mattered.

This is probably why even though the Mysterio Jr. name is occasionally referenced on the independents, he still officially wrestles simply as Rey Mysterio.

Since his release from WWE, he's occasionally referenced as Rey Mysterio Jr. on the independents…but given that he keeps the Mysterio spelling with the y, this is also technically a separate name from the one who unmasked.

** It's '''really''' hard to boo him. Only the most smark-heavy crowds ever turn against his plucky face persona, such as New York, who gave him some {{Heel}} heat during a ''Royal Rumble 2008'' match with Wrestling/{{Edge}}. And then there was 2014's ''Royal Rumble,'' when it was revealed that he was the final entry and not Daniel Bryan, as the crowd wanted. To say the crowd was furious would be the Understatement of the Year.

* ReligiousBruiser: Rey is as Catholic as he is badass, which is to say ''very.'' He opens most of his matches by taking a knee and crossing himself, and has a number of crosses and Christian symbols tattooed on his body.
