Rey Mysterio is one of the most decorated athletes in all of pro wrestling. A thorough WCW-WWE legend, Mr. 619 is also a celebrated stalwart in the indies as he continues to rewrite history day in, day out.

Ever since making his WWE return at SmackDown 1000, Mysterio has pulled off risky maneuvers be it against Andrade or Samoa Joe or in multi-man matchups. The masked veteran made shockwaves by performing The Canadian Destroyer – the vicious move that nobody thought they would ever see in a WWE ring.

Given the assumed danger of the move and WWE’s ban on piledrivers, the mere thought that The Canadian Destroyer would be performed in a WWE ring was totally out of the window – until Mysterio performed it, of course!

During a recent interview with Wrestling Inc., the Mexican Superstar commented on using the move and the subsequent reaction that he received backstage.

“I don’t ever recall asking if I could do it or not. I’ve always laid out what I wanted to do and there’s no ‘but’ or ‘and’ unless something is limited because it’s unsafe. With that move, it’s funny because when I did it, everybody was shocked that I was able to do it. I’m like, what’s wrong with it?”

For those unaware, The Canadian Destroyer is a modified version of the piledriver, the deadly move that only The Undertaker and Kane are allowed to perform in WWE.

“Unless somebody tells me that I can’t do it, then I won’t stop doing it.”

Veteran Mysterio is perhaps the only other wrestler besides The Brothers Of Destruction who can perform a piledriver-ish move safely.

Given the sheer athleticism that is required to perform The Canadian Destroyer, WWE is right in allowing only Mr. 619 to pull it off, although they might want to reserve it as a special attraction for pay-per-view events.
