UK based Pro Wrestling clothing company SPLX has officially announced Rey Mysterio as the latest performer to join their roster. Mysterio joins Zack Sabre Jr, Chelsea Green, Angélico, Matt Riddle, Dave Mastiff, Gail Kim and Jeff Cobb as a brand ambassador.
SPLX issued the following press release for Rey’s signing:
The latest athlete to join SPLX is a former two-time World Champion, Rey Mysterio. The master of the 619 joins Zack Sabre Jr, Chelsea Green, Angélico, Matt Riddle, Dave Mastiff, Gail Kim and Jeff Cobb.
Rey is considered one of the all time greats in the sport of professional wrestling. Now in his 28th year, he’s still putting on world class performances, and is regarded as a true pioneer within the industry.
Having inspired a whole generation of athletes, the world famous luchador isn’t looking to slow down and being a regular for CRASH as well as appearing all around the world including a upcoming match at ICW’s big Hydro show on 19th November.
We are very happy to welcome Rey Mysterio to Team SPLX, and look forward to working together.
Many fans of the UK scene were quick to highlight the working relationship between SPLX and top UK promotion PROGRESS. With PROGRESS’ Super Strong Style 16 tournament set for Alexandra Palace in 2018 will the ‘Master of the 619’ continue his run of UK based appearances and test himself against some of the UK’s best performers? It is worth noting that some of Rey’s fellow SPLX roster members have appeared in the tournament in the last couple of years.
