Greater Gods

    Goldberg 
William Scott "Bill" Goldberg, God of Squash Matches (Da Man)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bill-goldberg_8740.jpg
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: The number 177
  • Theme song: "Invasion" with a crowd chanting "Goldberg!" in the background
  • Alignmnet: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Inhuman Strength, Intimidating Facial Hair, Awesomeness Despite a Lack of Hair, Taking Hit Without Showing any form of Damage
  • Domains: Strength, Wrestling
  • Follower: Ryback
  • Allies: Almost any god who has defeated him or at least put up a good fight
  • Rivals:
  • Enemies: Vegeta, Yuuki Terumi, Chris Jericho and any thunder-based Deity, Bray Wyatt and the Wyatt Family
  • Made his appearance by having someone announce his feats before ending it with "Goldberg!" Then, there was someone with a camera following him as he walked toward the steps of the Pantheon, all while gods started to chant "GOLDBERG! GOLDBERG!" and other gods cheering him on until the doors to the Pantheon opened, fireworks and smoke emerged from behind, and he spat out the smoke as if he was a dragon. It was a sight to behold.
  • He is on pretty bad terms with Vegeta, due to the fact that his presence keeps reminding the Sayian Prince of a certain follower who would never stop pestering him.
  • He ascended to the Pantheon after defeating over 170 inhabitants of the Pantheon in a row, both gods and mortals. He would have lasted longer if Hazama didn't decide to ruin it all by setting up a trap involving pissing of Raiden (the one from Mortal Kombat), kidnapping Pikachu, building a lighning rod, stealing a bolt from Zeus and buying a cattle prod. Goldberg has sworn that he's next!
  • He has yet to face The Undertaker. It is not yet clear what chaos would ensue if they should ever battle.
    • That said, he was completely in shock when he learned how the Undertaker's streak was ended by Brock Lesnar. He went to the Deadman and raised his hand in victory, showing respect for what the Undertaker has done.
    • And then Goldberg returned and utterly squashed Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series 2016. How quick did the match last? 86 seconds. He later eliminated Lesnar from the Royal Rumble match, then captured the Universal Championship. The rematch came at the ensuing WrestleMania, for the championship… with Goldberg finally losing to Brock.
    • Undertaker and Goldberg later did confront each other, leading them to finally schedule a match in Saudi Arabia, with both men imploring each other to come in at their best. Come the match itself, however, Goldberg had overdone it with his headbutt-to-the-door ritual, so he was loopy the entire time. Combined with Undertaker's own wear and tear, the match was a sloppy affair as a result, and though Undertaker won, the only people more disappointed with the outcome than the fans were both titans themselves.
  • He is feared by many not only for his Jackhammer, that can even lift one of the Colossi, or his Spear, that has been able to cause cracks in the walls of the Gate of the Pantheon, but also because of the fact that Bret Hart, The God of Wrestling, was once nearly crippled by him after a single kick.
  • Despite his ruthless nature, he has been known to sit down and share pizzas with gods or mortals that has put up good fights with him, or even defeated him.
  • He once had to deliver presents to one of the many universes one Christmas after Nicholas St. North was unable to reach that specific realm of reality. The results were... not quite jolly.
  • Confronted the menace that was "The Fiend" and defeated him without breaking a sweat. Gods are wondering how this is going to affect Bray in the future.
    • In the meantime, Goldberg has been confronted by Roman Reigns and the two are heading off to combat each other at Wrestlemania 36. Gods are already placing bets as to whether or not Goldberg's Spear or Roman's Superman Punch will win the day.
    • Unfortunately, Roman had to back down due to his concerns of the pandemic going around and his recurring leukemia. Goldberg then had to fight off against Braun Strowman and was squashed after four powerbombs.
  • "Who's next"?!

    Ric Flair 
Richard Morgan "Ric" Flair, God of Ring Oldies (The Nature Boy, The Man, The Dirtiest Player in the Game, The Limousine-Ridin' Jet-Flyin' Kiss-Stealin' Wheelin' Dealin' Son of a Gun, GOD!, Richard Morgan Fliehr)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ric-flair.jpg
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: A Big Gold Belt
  • Theme Song: Also Sprach Zarathustra, but with a WOOOOOO in the beginning
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Professional Wrestling, Magnificent Bastard, Hitting Below the Belt, Being the Dirtiest Player in the Game, Dirty Old Man.
  • Domain: Competition, Glory, Trickery, Wealth, Nature (he is The Nature Boy, after all)
  • Herald: Charlotte Flair (his daughter)
  • Followers: Triple H, Johnny (Also known as "The Man"… except in the DS version)
  • Protégés: AJ Styles, Shawn Michaels
  • Rivals: Hulk Hogan, Bruno Sammartino, Bret Hart, Randy Orton, Edge
  • Friendly Rival: John Cena
  • Those in the Pantheon who have found favor with Flair have disappeared for days when invited along to party with the Nature Boy. Those who have incited his wrath suffer unthinkable agony, which is predated by Flair's thunderous roars, his face turning scarlet and Flair ripping off—and physically assaulting—his own vestments.
  • Routinely goes through suits that cost more than the average pro wrestling fan makes in a year...insomuch as that he, when suitably provoked (or in the middle of an intense enough promo) will rip his clothes off down to his boxers and drop elbows on them (at the very least his suit jacket).
  • Despite ascending to Godhood, parts of his body (such as his forehead and scalp) are still very susceptible to bleeding at even the slightest physical trauma. Until the wound is healed, blood pours out from Flair's body without stopping.
  • Should anybody in the Pantheon say "WOOO" within Flair's hearing range, then expect him to challange that person to a "WOOO-off". It is ill-advised to put your money on his opponent, since Ric Flair Is called "The Dirtiest Player in the Game" for a reason. Liu Kang learned it the hard way.
  • He was sadly unable to win the elimination match that decided the God of Wrestling. But on the plus side, he did score with some nurses in the hospital.

Intermediate Gods

    André the Giant 
André René Roussimoff, God of Wrestling Giants (André the Giant, Fezzik, The Eighth Wonder of the World)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/andrejake3_6427.jpg
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: A Big Silhouette of Himself
  • Leitmotif: "The Eighth Wonder"
  • Alignment: Neutral Good as a Face, Neutral Evil as a Heel
  • Portfolio: Deconstructing The Giant, drinking HUGE amounts of alcohol (LOTS of alcohol), deciding to live his life and defy a young death (due to said deconstruction), strength to match his gigantism, those who died early and sadly, nice giants (except when you piss them off), those who wish to pay for their meals (and ONLY him)
  • Domains: Wrestling, Giants, French, Strength
  • Herald: The Big Show (who was known as his son for a while)
  • Follower: Hugo
  • Allies: Fluttershy, Nicholas St. North, Inigo Montoya, Gangrel and Luna Vachon (The latter being his godchild), Arnold Schrwarzenegger, Vince McMahon (former boss), all good-aligned French gods, Poison
  • Rivals: Hulk Hogan (friendly)
  • Easily the most recognized wrestling giant out of them all, what many people didn't know was that his height through gigantism caused him so much pain. He went through extensive surgery prior to his famous Wrestlemania III match so that Hulk Hogan could shine. When Hulk revealed this story, numerous gods began to cry at how much André suffered. When André died (attending his own father's funeral no less!), he was officially the first inductee into the Wrestling Hall of Fame, and now he has finally ascended into the Pantheon, which was met with Tears of Joy.
    • Hulk Hogan challenged him to a match when André ascended which was met with the cheers of all the Gods rooting for André to fight once more. The fight was said to be one of the greatest ever.
  • Can usually be seen in the House of Food drinking like no tomorrow. Caught many drinking gods by surprise when they've seen how much he drinks at one sitting. In his own words, it usually takes two liters of vodka just to make him feel warm inside. He's a good drinking buddy of Stone Cold Steve Austin because of this.
    • The House of Health and Diseases have actually used his drinking as a guideline to figure out how much anaesthetic to place on gods like him who suffer from gigantism.
  • Surprisingly has a friendship with Fluttershy. Fluttershy was, at first, intimidated by Andre being...a giant. However, André brought her to a small farm in his house and showed all the animals he tended for. Fluttershy then visits him every day now because of this.
  • He also has a possé.
  • Inigo Montoya was glad to have Fezzik (kind of) in the Pantheon. André has also met up with Kevin Levin, who nearly had a fanboy moment over seeing a character from one of his favorite stories in front of his eyes.
  • In celebration of Wrestlemania XXX, André created the André the Giant Battle Royale, with the winner granted his blessing for the following year. He learned that a wrestler named Cesaro won this by hurling his High Priest over the top rope, reminiscent of what Hulk Hogan did to him 27 tears ago. For this, Cesaro was thus elevated into the Pantheon as an Intermediate God.
  • Is on good terms with Arnold Schwarzenegger. In fact, one night, when the two were having dinner together, there was a bit of an argument as to who would pay for the bill as André was well known for paying for meals. When Arnold decided to ask for the bill, many of the gods at the House of Food were alarmed to see the Giant carry Arnold back to the table like Arnold was a child. No one has ever tried to make that mistake since.
  • Is on good terms with good-aligned French gods (as he's from France himself). He's wary of Remy (the human, not the rat), although the Street Fighter knows better than to mess with someone who can tip a car over with his bare hands.
    • Rat Remy, however, is appreciative of André's love of fine-dining—André in particular loves the rat's delicious ratatouille.
  • Whenever he wishes to drive across the Pantheon, he usually has to reconfigure the car so that his head is sticking out of the roof. Many gods in the House of Travel have started to reconfigure their cars to match his height.
    • The same goes to the House of Costumes when it comes to designing outfits and shoes to fit him.
  • Is Luna Vachon's godfather (yes, seriously). He is very protective of her, seeing as he didn't live to see her in the WWF and such. He is also on friendly terms with Gangrel and woe to those who would go hurt Luna (which is hard to do but if it does happen...)
    • He also became good friends with the Cutie Mark Crusaders, crying in anguish when he learned of the Crusaders' trip to Limbo, to the point that some gods joked that he was crying more than Gangrel (the Crusaders' self-appointed vampire wrestling babysitter) was. Gangrel and Luna Vachon are happy that André is offering to babysit the trio and having the trio take care of his farm. And when the Broken Hardys sent the trio to Limbo again, André has decided that he's going to join his godchild and her ex-husband on stopping the Hardys from causing more trouble.
    • Just had to facepalm when he learned that Matt became the winner of his Battle Royal. He's agreed with his godchild and her ex-husband that WOKEN Matt is nothing but trouble, especially now that Bray Wyatt's teamed with him. And even after the two split, Andre has no words over the "Firefly Fun House".
  • Has formed a friendship with Poison. While many are wondering if it's just so Poison could have some muscle for her wrestling association, many are shocked to learn that it's not for personal gain. Poison sees so much of her pal, Hugo in Andre and was actually saddened to hear that he died while he was on his way to attend his own father's funeral. As a token of faith, Andre helped ascend Hugo as a follower.
  • Gods have learned that his famous Wrestlemania III match could have gone in many different directions: what if Hulk Hogan lost? What if Andre was fighting Bruno Sammartino? Andre himself won't give a definitive answer, but that doesn't stop everyone from speculating.

    John Cena 
And the next pro- AND HIS NAME IS JOHN CENA!

John Felix Anthony Cena, God of the Five Moves of Doom (Fruity Pebbles, Super Cena, Potato Salad, Dr. of Thuganomics, Hunter Cain, Baron Draxum, Agent Burns)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tlc13_photo_253_470.jpg
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: The "U Can't C Me" logo; as Hunter Cain, it becomes his gun inscribed with the words "Sweet Caroline" and as Baron Draxum it's his minions Hugnin and Munnin
  • Theme Song: "My Time Is Now"; "Basic Thuganomics (Word Life)" during his Dr. of Thuganomics days
  • Alignment: Lawful Good, but was more Chaotic Neutral during his Thuganomic days (His Baron Draxum avatar is Lawful Evil, considers himself Lawful Good (True Neutral as of a Heel–Face Turn) and Hunter Cain is Neutral Evil)
  • Portfolio: Five Moves of Doom, Appealing to Younger People and Those Who Like Kids, Beware the Nice Ones, Strength of a Hundred Gods, Recovering After Devestating Attacks, Being Loved as Much as Hated, Telling Off Other People
  • Domains: Strength, Wrestling, Momentum, Determination
  • Heralds: Zack Ryder
  • Followers: The Cenation (consists mostly of women and children)
  • Boss: Vince McMahon
  • Allies:
  • Rivals: Randy Orton, Roman Reigns, Edge (Friendly), CM Punk (Same), The Rock, Dolph Ziggler, Chris Jericho
  • Worthy Opponent: AJ Styles, Cesaro, Daniel Bryan
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Dean Ambrose
  • Conflicting Opinion: Brian Kendrick, Seth Rollins, Jon Stewart (It Makes Sense in Context, really)
  • Enemies: The Shredder (Baron Draxum avatar only)
  • Respects: Kenshiro, Son Goku
  • Ascended into Godhood when he managed to survive after being blasted by Goku's Kamehameha and retaliate with The Five Moves Of Doom. The Cenation cheered with the greatest of joy, but many of his critics swelled with such burning hatred that many of them combusted in flames.
  • Has been rumored to be one of the few survivors of Krypton. This rumor has not been confirmed yet.
    • Cena replied that he's not a Kryptonian, but has the strength of one.
  • Was not present at the 8-man Elimination Hell in a Cell match that decided the new God of Wrestling. Considering the strong and divided emotions he causes with simply his presence, this was probably for the best.
  • Is a powerful warrior who fights for the three virtues: Hustle, Loyalty and Respect. This has made him a nearly perfect member of the GUAG.
  • Cena has a habit of spending his free time in the House of Music, teaching the other members of the Pantheon the basics of Thuganomics, despite not practicing it often.
  • Is now preparing to fight fellow GUAG member Dway... err mean, The Rock at WrestleMania on April 1st, 2012. The entire Pantheon is following the lead-up to their epic clash, with members turning on allies and betting and fighting on the possible outcome.
    • Unfortunately, he fell short in his battle when he tried to end the fight with the People's Elbow. However, the two had a rematch the very next year where Cena beat the Rock for the first time ever.
  • During his younger years, Cena was a street-wise brawler known as the "Doctor of Thuganomics", who was known for being very brutal and brash compared to how he is now. Nowadays, Cena has meditated and become calm and level-headed, but will not hesitate to demonstrate his old "Ruthless Aggression" when pushed.
  • Damien Sandow onced cashed the Money in the Bank against him for Godhood. He instantly defeated Sandow in matter of seconds, ensuring that he kept his godly position.
  • He witnessed the ascension of his buddy Rey Mysterio and helped set up his temple in the House of Sports. John has decided to help Rey prepare a seat for his old friend/rival Eddie Guerrero, and makes sure to keep an eye out on Edge should the Ultimate Opportunist try to Spear him out of random.
  • Is starting to show that he does not have to rely on the Five Moves of Doom, busting out a variety of moves from a Hurricanrana, a Code Red, a Frankensteiner, and even a Figure-Four Leg Lock to a variety of wrestlers from CM Punk, Cesaro and even AJ Styles. Many gods are debating as to how Cena's standing in the Pantheon has changed.
  • Once copied Rarity's penchant for whining. The look on Rarity's face was of shock...for about three seconds. She immediately rolled on the floor laughing, composed herself, and then asked if it was possible if she could tailor some new shirts for him (in purple). Many other Gods—particularly the Equestrian ones especially Sweetie Belle, Rarity's little sister—were taken aback at how it all played out.
  • Thanks to one certain wrestler (*cough* The Rock *cough*), Cena has now been doing commercials regarding Fruity Pebbles, getting advertisement advice from one Billy Mays. Let's just say that the House of Food had to survive through this for quite a while. And then this came to its obvious conclusion, when he (apparently) has a prehistoric version of himself that interacted with Fred Flintstone.
    • He became good friends with Pyrrha Nikos since she also did advertisement for cereals. Cena has been comforting her after learning of her death.
  • Sometimes, there's an avatar of Cena who wields a gun called "Sweet Caroline" striving to fight off monsters known as EVOs, calling himself Hunter Cain parading in his temple. Those who have seen this avatar are taken back as Hunter Cain is the exact opposite of the Cenation Leader. John Cena himself makes no comment about him.
    • And speaking of mutants, now there's been a strange mutant avatar of him known as Baron Draxum that's been observing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles lately and what doesn't help is that Baron Draxum was the creator of one iteration of the Turtles... Cena is also now gunning after The Shredder since Draxum was tricked into donning Shredder's armor, absorbing Draxum's lifeforce to be resurrected. It took Mikey to help Cena convince his Draxum avatar to at least try to understand and live with humanity. The results have worked as Draxum now helps the Turtles against any mutant threats and now having Cena truly supporting the turtles.
      • ''Bumblebee' is wary of him (which shouldn't be possible since they both like kids) because Cena looks similar to a Sector Seven character named "Agent Burns".
  • Also, don't make him mad. The last person who tried hitting on Cena's good friend Zack Ryder was...pummeled six ways to Sunday.
    • And another thing? NEVER hurt his dad. The last two gods who did this (Edge slapping him across the face, Randy Orton kicking him in the head), were beaten up by an enraged Cena that made him look as if he could fight off against Asura if he had to.
  • Has started to train Shaggy and Scooby for an upcoming match for Wrestlemania where they will be fighting Kane. They're gonna need it.
  • Honestly has no idea what to think of Brian Kendrick, seeing as when Brian Kendrick did a rap battle to him a while back he accidentally would kickstart the "Cena Sucks!" chants that can be heard when Cena wrestles. And when John Cena learned how Brian Kendrick can perform the BURNING HAMMER, Cena has now noted that Kendrick could be a formidable threat.
  • As of late, there's been a flower-smelling bull that's been seen hanging around his temple. Many fans have quickly dubbed the bull as "Bull Cena."
  • His favorite anime world is Fist of the North Star, so naturally he's a big admirer of Kenshiro. However, Goku's smug and defiant attitude towards the Tournament of Power in the Dragon Ball multiverse has caught Cena's attention and even a measure of his respect.
  • Is still wary of Seth Rollins even after Rollins made his Heel–Face Turn due to Rollins almost snapping Edge's neck even after Cena apologized. His alliance with Dean Ambrose is still shaky, but he's glad to see both Ambrose and Rollins burying the hatchet.
  • After he and Roman Reigns had a blistering confrontation, the House of Sports has been advertising the epic clash they are about to go through. Many are wondering as to how this fight will end and no one expected that Reigns actually won or how the entire crowd chanted "Thank you Cena!". Yes, pigs flew that day.
  • Had the audacity to goad The Undertaker into a WrestleMania match a year after Taker's loss to Roman Reigns. It ended with Cena beaten within five minutes.
  • Is off to face "The Fiend" at Wrestlemania 36 and various gods have warned him that any wrestler who wrestled with him (and lost) were somehow corrupted into a previous form of theirs. Cena isn't that worried — he did beat Bray six years prior — but many are still unsure.
    • Many gods were frightened out of their wits when Bray Wyatt's "Firefly Funhouse Match" involved him breaking Cena in regards to Cena's career of "Ruthless Aggression" and being the hero before the Fiend emerged, pinned him and subsequently made Cena truly disappear out of existence. No one has seen heads or tails of Cena since then.

    Mick Foley and Terry Funk 
Michael Francis "Mick" Foley and Terrence "Terry" Funk, Gods of Hardcore Wrestling (Mick: Mankind, Cactus Jack, Dude Love, The Hardcore Legend, Mrs. Foley's Baby Boy, The Boulder | Terry: Chainsaw Charlie, The Hardcore Icon, The Funker)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/funkcactus_crop_340x234.jpg
  • Vitriolic Best Buds with: The Rock (Foley)
  • Upon their ascension they promptly sent invitations to any and all challengers for a free-for-all anything goes melee. Of course this brawl became a weekly event.
  • Terry claims he'll retire once every other month only to return for that weekly brawl.
  • Foley had his ascension spoiled by Tony Schiavone. Of course after many gods came to see him ascend.
  • Foley can also be seen at the house of Narrative showcasing his newest book. He's also a feminist and teaches martial arts to goddesses to defend themselves.
  • Despite their Hardcore moniker, they are capable of wrestling traditionally. They just choose not to.
  • Foley was once challenged to a fight against Toph Beifong due to mistaking him of being the Earthbender known as "The Boulder". Mick reassured her that he wasn't, but he admitted that she was a powerhouse in her own right.

    Rey Mysterio 
Rey Mysterio, God of Masked Luchadors (Oscar Gutierrez, Rey Mysterio Jr./Rey Misterio, The Ultimate Underdog, The Legendary King of Mystery, The King of Lucha Libre, Rey Mysteriopal)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rey_mysterio_jr.jpg
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: Any of his Masks, or a question mark topped with a crown
  • Theme Song: 619, Booyaka 619, Crossing Borders
  • Alignment: Lawful Good/Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: fast, agile wrestlers, speaking Spanish and English, cute looking and small ass kickers, those who like children and those who kids like back (and one who will hunt you down if you hurt his), crosses on his outfit and body, Face, numerous wrestling outfits that verge on Costume Porn, fighting against opponents taller than he is, luchador masks, being older than what they appear to be, kicking ass while also being Roman Catholic.
  • Domains: Wrestling (particularly Lucha Libre), Good, Mexico.
  • Heralds: Rey Misterio Sr. (his uncle and the original Rey Misterio) and Dominic (his son)
  • High Priest: El Santo
  • Followers: El Fuerte, Sin Cara (both the original wielder and Jorge Arias), El Toro Fuerte (no relation to El Fuerte), MASK de Smith
  • Boss: Vince McMahon
  • Allies: John Cena, King II, Zangief, The Murray,Yayoi Kise, Matt Hardy and Jeff Hardy (only when they're not BROKEN), Daniel Bryan, Travis Touchdown, The Undertaker, Paul London and Brian Kendrick, Little Mac, Sora
  • Rivals: Edge (a friendly one though), CM Punk (also friendly), Kane, Randy Orton, Dolph Ziggler, Akuma
  • Fears: Quetzalcoatl
  • Enemies: The GUAE essentially, YHVH
  • Not to be confused with: Quentin Beck/Mysterio
  • King II decided to bring in one of the most famous masked wrestlers of all time, Rey Mysterio, into the Pantheon. This is because no matter how big the opponent or how small the odds, Rey Mysterio has never given up. Rey also has been one of the biggest Faces throughout his entire career—even gods like John Cena weren't that squeaky clean in the beginning.
    • There was a bit of a debate that some gods suggested El Santo be God of the Masked Luchador. However, when the Court of the Gods went over El Santo's profile, his fame actually came more for his masked persona rather than his wrestling skill. This cemented Rey's position, but Rey thought it would be right if El Santo became his High Priest. The Court of Gods agreed.
  • Is very, very protective of his children. The last god who decided to hurt them (CM Punk who caused his daughter to cry on her birthday by singing to her), got a 619 to the face. Punk has since apologized for acting like such a douche and has buried the hatchet with him.
  • Is an avid comic book fan, and every year at Wrestlemania (or any other pay-per-view he fights in), he comes out as different types of superheroes ranging from Daredevil, Captain America, Iron Man, and The Flash. There was also that one time he dressed up as the Joker, which caused the Clown Prince of Crime to laugh his ass off at the tribute.
    • Yayoi Kise actually came to him with some of her comic books, hoping that Rey would use it for inspiration for his costumes. To her surprise, Rey said the designs were very interesting and he told her he'd wear her designs next time he fought. Yayoi immediately shed tears of happiness, causing many of the gods who saw the two together to coo in delight.
  • Many gods have learned the hard way about underestimating Rey's skills. They've soon had themselves kicked in the face and then followed up with the 619 or a Frog Splash for good measure. It's gotten to the point that it's become a huge drinking game in the Houses of Combat, Sports and Commerce to see how many gods get their asses kicked by him.
  • Despite never turning heel, there was that one Alternate Universe where he got amnesia on the road to Wrestlemania thanks to Jack Swagger. The Rey in that universe knew about Jack giving him amnesia, but was having too much fun living by his own rules to reveal the truth, though he eventually fell out with Swagger and more or less returned to his heroic ways.
  • When he's not practicing or training, Rey is usually seen in the House of Weapons, trying to find some new swords for his collection. Gods who didn't believe he could kick their asses are now fearing the day he comes wielding a sword in tandem with his luchador skills.
    • Travis Touchdown met up with him and handed Rey a spare Beam Katana he had on hand. Rey...smiled.
  • Despite their stance as rivals, Edge and Rey actually have teamed up together and won the tag team champions once or twice. For old time's sake, Edge teamed with Rey to fight off the Hardys in a friendly match. Once the match was over, however, Rey was on the receiving end of a Spear. Rey then retaliated with a 619, so it all was fair.
    • It took a while for Rey to forgive Edge in regards to his decision to marry Vickie Guerrero though, especially since Vickie became very abrasive to Rey for a time.
  • Is not to be confused with Mysterio in the House of Magic. The last time Quentin Beck tried to pretend he was the luchador, Rey chased him with the beam katana he got from Travis.
    • The Magician Mysterio did have a laugh when Rey dressed up as him for his Wrestlemania 35 match and then got his ass handed to him in under a minute. Rey calmly picked up a sword and once again went after Mysterio and began cursing in non-family friendly Spanish.
  • Rey is never allowed to use a steel chair in a wrestling match. Why, do you ask? Because unlike most heel and anti-hero gods who can easily get disqualified if they have one in their hands, he gets away with it due to him being so squeaky clean and somehow it's justified that he's channeling the spirit of his friend Eddie Guerrero.
  • Was once accused of placing the Undertaker in a coma. After enough investigation, it was revealed that it was really Kane who did the deed and framed the luchador to hide the evidence. Rey even said that despite the matches the two had with one another, there would be no way that he could beat the Deadman into such a state.
    • Of course it should be noted that Rey did break Taker's orbital bone and gave him a concussion during a match, hence why Kane thought he could not only commit the assault in the first place, but also frame Rey for it.
  • On one occasion, he got into a scuffle with Akuma, which resulted in him dodging the Shun Goku Satsu and countering with a 619. Akuma left... mightily impressed.
  • Is impossible to be hated, as his title is "The Ultimate Underdog"...except for the Pantheon Wrestling Federation's Royal Rumble Match in 2014, the fans booed him due to them expecting Daniel Bryan as #30. Rey understands that it's not really him that they hated that night, but more on how Daniel Bryan got screwed over for a chance to headline Wrestlemania.
  • Also can be seen in the Academy, supervising the Lucha Libré club.
  • After leaving the WWE Universe, he had a match with Tigre Uno/Xtreme Tiger against Hijo del Perro Aguayo and Manik in Tijuana for Lucha Libre AAA (who both Mysterio and Perro Jr. competed for at the time). The match ended in tragedy when he kicked Perro Jr. in the back (which is not strong as it is) to land him on the second rope for the 619, only for Perro's neck to be heavily injured by the rope itself. Mysterio got shocked after learning that Perro Jr. passed away one day later after the match, and gave condolences to the Aguayo family for the accident.
    • The Court of the Gods checked that Rey Mysterio lacked malicious intent in the death of Perro Jr., seeing that Rey is actually the one who checked that something was wrong during that match. Since that day, Mysterio is pretty much a Hurting Hero now.
  • Was originally called Rey Mysterio Jr. because his uncle and mentor was the original Rey Misterio. In order to regain his mask in WWE after being forced to unmask in World Championship Wrestling, he has taken up the mantle as the main Rey Mysterio (with his uncle competing as Misterio Sr.). The idea was actually his uncle's, and the Loophole Abuse was accepted by the Mexican sporting authorities, because no one liked how anticlimactic and random his de-masking was in the first place. Though he does still accept being called Mysterio Jr. out of respect.
  • Is a Roman Catholic and, like most gods in the Pantheon, absolutely has a dislike for YHVH. He has befriended other religious wrestlers like AJ Styles, Shawn Michaels and Luna Vachon and goes to pray on Sundays with his family. Be warned that harming his family during these masses is guaranteed to have Rey chase after you.
  • It does not matter who you are or how tough you are, if you hurt his kids, Rey will come after you. Case in point: when Brock Lesnar started beating up his son, Rey arrived with a steel pipe and made Lesnar bleed, even going as far as to challenge the Beast at Survivor Series 2019. Yes, he did lost, but needless to say no one is going to underestimate the Ultimate Underdog anytime soon.
    • And no, believing that Dominic isn't as tough as his father is an absolutely stupid thing to do as he and Rey pulled off a stereo 619 onto Lesnar before both performed a Frog Splash to The Beast. The Court of the Gods were impressed with this and Dominic is now an additional herald to Rey, spending time practicing and honing his wrestling skills.
