- This week’s WWE Five-Star Match of the Week was chosen by WWE agent Dean Malenko and he chose his match against Rey Mysterio from WCW’s The Great American Bash 1996. Malenko told WWE.com:
“That was a special night for me because Rey was an opponent I always wanted to work against in the ring. I asked the offices of WCW if we could bring him in for a shot at my Cruiserweight Championship, because it was a match that I anticipated having a lot of fun with. I love when two styles clash – Rey being a lucha libre style performer and a very impactful, aerially talented guy, and myself being more of a mat technician. What really stands out about that night was the guys in the back being really disappointed seeing Rey. They thought he was really small and very young-looking, which we kind of laugh at now. But it ended up being one of the only times in 20-some odd years of being in the business that I walked back in the dressing room and my peers stood on their feet applauding this guy’s ability and what he did that night. It was a really neat scene for me to see and it definitely welcomed Rey into the fold of WCW. It was a great moment and one that I cherish very highly.”
