Now, WWE Drafted Rey Mysterio to Monday Night Raw, and then put up a video of the moment when he actually secured the title after pinning The Miz. In fact, the company referred to this moment as a “classic” and wondered if it will be repeated.

While WWE meant if Rey Mysterio will become the WWE Champion again or not, it massively backfired. Fans on Twitter immediately responded, reminding the company what happened with John Cena an hour later. To the fans, this was definitely not a classic moment!

Can Rey Mysterio become WWE Champion again?

Mysterio has the potential to become the WWE Champion, but the real question is – will WWE give him the chance again?

At the moment, Big E is the WWE Champion. It would take several matches for Rey Mysterio to go through the others pursuing the WWE Championship and finally meet Big E in the ring. In that mix, there’s Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre as well.

The last time Rey was in a title feud was against Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Championship. The duo battled on WWE SmackDown in a Hell in a Cell match, but Mysterio couldn’t overpower The Tribal Chief.

On the other hand, Mysterio was in a SmackDown Tag Team title feud against The Usos alongside his son, Dominik Mysterio. The Mysterios were the SmackDown Tag Team champions, and The Usos defeated them for the same.
