    Rey Mysterio was embarrassed and personally hurt by the WCW unmasking angle. As a proud luchadore, he was brought up on the lucha-libre culture where a wrestlers mask was his life, his career.

    Looking back, the angle that WCW booked was a stupid exercise in how not to make a star. While he faced the likes of Bigelow and Nash, in David vs Goliath matches, nothing came from it.

    But hindsight is an incredible thing. How did he know that WCW were not going to follow through and make him a star? Did he have to agree with it? Surely he could have thrown a bitch fit and refused? But he was getting paid so why bother.

    The matches that he had after being unmasked were making him more of a star than opening Nitro as just another face of the cruiserweight division. He was working with bigger names, names who were more known in the mainstream, pre-empting his work in WWE to this day. He had plenty of success as part of the Filthy Animals stable and it didn’t ever stop him getting work after WCW closed.

    So while WCW screwed up the angle, what changed in the grand scheme of things? Not a lot.

    If Rey OK’d losing his mask to Bischoff as part of the booking, why should he have kept it? If Rey agreed to it, then he should have lost his mask in line with the storyline.

    You are right where come's from is pretty much a disgrace to lose your mask you might as well kill yourself after you get unmasked.

    Now im to young to remember this storyline but i have read into but the Feud with Nash was helping him but the certenly did not need to take his mask off.
    For this to work.

    Now WCW did not make him a star with him taking his mask off.Hell i think it hurt him.When they took his mask off Mysterio lost some of his mystique when they reveled the mask under the mask

    Yeah but him unmasking was not needed to have better matches.Yes he was working against more bigger names but to Mysterio was it really worth losing his mask preety much losing his identity i don't think so.I do agree that the Filthy Animals stable did help him but like i said before he could of done this with his mask

    Now it didnt hurt the grand scheme but it did hurt Rey Mysterio it hurt his tradition of lucha libre losing his mask.

    He only agreed with it because it was either his mask or his job.It might have not been the right the decsion to make but it was the choice he had to make

    You have no opening argument! So are you using my own opening against me? Regardless, I’ll plough through this.

    Glad we agree on that....

    I didn't watch WCW but I know enough about it. It was a horrible angle, but my point is, if it had been better handled with more skill, then the outcome could have been successful. I suspect their interest in him as a crusier had faded and their attitude was that they couldn't make him worse or less entertaining.


    But for a brief time he was in matches that had more importance than curtain jerking cruiserwight matches. And as part of the Filty Animals he was not any less successful. Unmasking didn't affect his ability to be successful in WCW. He didn't lose his personality, his ring work was unchanged.

    If he wasn't happy about it then he should have left with the Radicalz.

    Again, he was arguably more successful. He worked against and beat bigger names than the small guys WCW were booking in the cruiserweight division at the time.

    Rey Mysterio could have been very successful, masked, in ECW, Japan or Mexico. But he chose to take the paycheck, keep quiet and not pursue a career elsewhere. Understandable choice I'd say. And when it came to moving to WWE, he was immediately booked in a successful program with Kurt Angle. I am certain that WWE did this because they knew he was versatile to work with the biggest names on the card.

    And to this day, this is still the case. His time being unmasked had absolutely nil adverse effect on his career.

    No guy i already new what i was going to say and you had some stuff that i was going to talk about.But thats your fault.[/Quote]

    I'm preety sure their attitude had changed, but that has nothing to do with that they should have never done.And that is expose the man under the mask.

    Yeah for a brief he had more importance but was it worth Mysterio taking off the mask.

    There was a severe lack of details to form a rebuttal against so I’m just going straight to my closing points.

    *

    Rey Mysterio was a star waiting to break out. The guy put on awesome matches that stole many a pay per view and Nitro. He could have been made in a main event in any country in the world, had he not been in WCW. Mexico and Japan would have flocked to see the guy in his prime.

    WCW at the time were not giving a f’’k about the little guys. The Radicalz were in a similar position and they walked. Even Big Show, could have stayed in WCW and been very successful, but the egos were driving that company.

    By staying in WCW, he allowed and OK’d the decision to unmask him, he got big wins (and therefore big money) against huge guys in WCW. I know he wasn’t happy but he did not have to stay. He could have walked into any company, even WWF would not have turned him away..

    Now, Rey is still fighting bigger guys and is hugely successful doing it. This is something that WWE knew he could because he did it all those years ago. As a key part in WWE’s decision to go PG, Rey also nails the massive Latino demographic. He is a huge money maker and a true WWE superstar because everyone loves the underdog character that he so strongly represents.

    My point is, by being unmasked, Rey profited financially and in his career. Had his career tanked like his Mexican counterparts, then I could understand, but as he is the best American born lucha ever, his talent shone through and he has not suffered for it.

    *

    Let me say this has been a bit of a cluster. The choice was late being made, there was no opening argument and I doubt there would be a closing argument before deadline either. I accept that I misread the choice BUT that’s no excuse for the plagiarism of my first post and the poor debate following it.

    My closing argument i will state that Rey should never of been unmasked Bitchoff should of had more class and not of asked Rey for his mask because of the tradition that comes with the mask.It was wrong for Bitchoff to do that but Mysterio had no other choice if he wanted to stay with WCW.The point is that maybe to us as fans we see that it didnt affect Mysterio but we dont no how Mysterio felt.I'm preety sure that he wasn't happy with his decision but he had to do it.Was it the right choice NO.Was it worth it HELL NO!!He should of kept his mask on never reveal his face on live telivision and keep his mystique as the man under the mask.

    And BTW i already knew what i was going to wright it not my fault and are ignorant and not read my post that is your fault!!

    Classy

    Clarity: I'll be surprised if I ever give this point to youngbullzeye

    Point - Numbers

    Punctuality: Didnt like the way he went about it but Numbers was right, so he gets the point for being on time

    Point - Numbers

    Informative: Brought up the following success that ReyRey had after being defrocked, Numbers again

    Point - Numbers

    Persuasion: Well, it's obviously Numbers, more facts, better arguments, yeah he wins. I said youngbullzeye always seems to give his all earlier on, still think so, just needs to work on his posts more.

    Numbers - 5
    youngbullzeye - 0

    Informative: youngbullzeye should have just copied the post Numbers initially made...he would have gotten this point and split the clarity one.

    Point: Numbers

    Clarity of debate: Numbers
    No opening argument from ybe hurts him here.

    Punctuality: Numbers
    youngbullzeye didn't get his opening post done in the 24 hours required.

    Informative: Numbers
    I don't think youngbullzeye even brought any information, at least nothing new.

    Persuasion: Numbers
    Numbers had this argument from the go, the fact that youngbullzeye spent most of his time saying that his own screw ups were Numbers fault didn't add to the argument he wasn't giving. More or less a default victory for him here.

    Final Score
    youngbullzeye: 0
    Numbers: 5

    I don't think youngbullzeye realizes how seriously these debates need to be taken. Proper punctuation, sentence structure, time management, and fact finding must be used to win these debates. Unfortunately, he didn't bring any of that here.

    However, Numbers did.

    Clarity: Numbers
    Punctuality: Numbers
    Informative: Numbers
    Persuasion: Numbers

    Final Score
    Numbers: 5
    youngbullzeye: 0
