Jim Ross On Why Rey Mysterio Was Pushed By WWE While Other Cruiserweights Were Not

Jim Ross on Vince McMahon’s work as a heel:

“Vince McMahon was the greatest heel that I ever worked with, the greatest pure heel that I ever worked with. He was the top heel in the Attitude Era, Mr. McMahon.”

Jim Ross on Tajiri:

“I loved to call his matches and sometimes his facial expressions were so priceless it was all I could do to keep from laughing because I enjoyed it so much.”

Jim Ross on why Tajiri didn’t get a bigger push:

“He just wasn’t big enough, he was a cruiserweight. Vince never saw big money in cruiserweights.”

Jim Ross on Rey Mysterio getting a push:

“Rey is a different breed of cat, Conrad. He’s a different cruiserweight. He had that move-set that was absolutely amazing. He was new, he was fresh, he had a great look. The mask is a big deal for him but Rey Mysterio was a legitimate star long before [WWE]. He just got better and better. I think he signed a new contract again with WWE, which is good at this stage of the game. He was a little different breed of cat. You can’t compare Rey Mysterio to all of the other cruiserweights because he was that much better and on a different level in my estimation.”
