Rey Mysterio Jr. is adding another accomplishment to his historic career. The lucha libre legend and current WWE star is the winner of the Cauliflower Alley Club’s 2020 Lucha Libre Award, as announced this morning on Twitter by the CAC’s official account. Mysterio joins last year’s recipient Blue Demon Jr. as the second winner of this award. He will receive it at the Cauliflower Alley Club in April of 2020.
“I couldn’t think of a more deserving winner of the Lucha Libre award than Rey Mysterio,” said CAC social media administrator Roy Lucier. “For so many people worldwide, Rey has become Lucha Libre and the face of the style. Rey has influenced literally millions to watch Lucha and transcend that style from Mexico and make it known all over the world. When discussions were going over who should receive this award, I spoke up and said we needed to reach out and see if Rey was available to accept it, and as fate would have it, he did happily accept it and would be there to receive the award. This will definitely be a special night, to honor Rey in front of his peers and have his name etched with so many others who paved the way in this business.”
“The Cauliflower Alley Club is extremely excited to recognize Rey Mysterio Jr’s outstanding career in the Lucha Libre wrestling style, not to mention his extreme success all around the world,” said B. Brian Blair, former WWE wrestler and current president of the CAC. “Rey will receive the award, which is the CAC’s highest honor in this category. Thank you Rey for all the years of hard work and entertainment. Wishing you another decade of success!”
Lucha Central would like to congratulate Mysterio on this accomplishment.
