This past Sunday marked the "25th anniversary" of the WWE’s spectacle of the year. The Intercontinental Title match starts out with the, then, champion J.B.L.. He does a bit of a promo and plug and all that usual stuff a heel does. Heel, being the term us fans use for a “bad guy”. Anyways, his opponent, Rey Mysterio, a veteran to the business comes out from the ring and pyro goes off…and then I notice his attire. White mask, red lips, green “hair”, purple pants and suit. Yep. Rey Mysterio was “Ledgerized”. I have to admit, it was sort of cool looking. Rey walked down the ramp giving out Joker cards to random fans, and even the commentary team were sort of taken aback. Though, they should not have been that surprised: Rey’s done this before. Rey himself is a huge comic book fan and has made several masks and attire in honor of the likes of Iron Man, Spider-Man, Silver Surfer, the Flash and Daredevil. There was one hiccup during the aftermath. Jerry Lawler made a comment about how Rey is honoring Heath Ledger’s Joker, but Jim Ross made a VERY snide comment about how “at least Rey’s career is alive and well.” Seriously, bad form there, JR.
Here are some photos. Personally, I thought it was pretty cool looking.
