Rey Mysterio's Signature Finishing Move



The 619 - Named after the local area code in Mysterio's hometown in California, the 619 was created when Mysterio came to WWE to go with his Hurricanrana. The move succeeded so much that Mysterio eventually became a World Champion because of it. The key to the maneuver is to have Mysterio's opponent near the ropes. Once Mysterio has managed to trip up his opponent, stringing them on one of the ropes, he runs to the other side of the ring, picking up momentum. When he comes back, Mysterio uses the ropes, swinging through them and kicking his opponent square in the face. With the opponent thus stunned, Mysterio has the option of Dropping the Dime or landing the West Coast Pop. Decisions, decisions!


West Coast Pop - Mysterio usually would hit this move after stunning his opponent with the 619. With his foe struggling to get to his feet, Mysterio would move outside the ring and stand on the apron. When the moment was right, Mysterio launched himself into the air over the top rope, springboarding up into the air and flying towards his opponent, getting a hurricanrana into a roll-up pin that almost always led to the victory.
