Jordan Devlin Calls Rey Mysterio An Inspiration To Younger Wrestlers

Rey Mysterio is the man widely credited with popularizing the cruiserweight style in the United States. And even at the age of 45, Mysterio is still going strong in WWE.

And current NXT Cruiserweight Champion Jordan Devlin can't help but be impressed with how Mysterio remains one of the best in-ring performers in wrestling.

Sonya Deville Comments On Potential In-Ring Return

"I've been watching him since I was a really young man and I've seen him in WCW, I watched his stuff in ECW on tape and then when he came to the WWE he lit the whole world on fire again," Devlin told SPORTBible. "He's just been going for, like, 20-25 years at the highest possible level and he just has this ability to reinvent himself. And some of the matches he had this year with Andrade, it's just like you're watching an 18-year-old man fly around the ring and some of the stuff he's able to pull off is incredible. So, he's an inspiration to me and an inspiration for most other young wrestlers who see themselves wrestling into their late 30s and 40s."

Devlin has said in past interviews that Mysterio is a dream match for him and that he would love to face Mysterio at WrestleMania. You can find his past comments by clicking here.
